Welcome to the American School for Women and Children!  We have been helping families from other countries, living in Toledo, Ohio since 2003.  Our program offers women-only ESL (English as a Second Language) classes.  While our moms are studying hard, the little ones are safe and happy in our Early Education Department.

A note from one of our students:
I came to the United States because my husband's job transferred him last July.  When I came here, I couldn't speak English and the difference in culture was stressful.  I had no friends.  I only did childcare and housework and I used to have a desire to cry and return to Japan.  I felt gloomy and hopeless.
However, at The American School for Women and Children, I got to make friends and various chances were given to me last September.  I am sincerely happy and interested in studying English, singing songs and sewing something new.
It changed my life.  My life is greatly filled with pleasure.  Now I think the United States' culture can be learned.  I can also know interesting stories from all over the world from other students.  I am very rich.  I want to grow in English.  I wish that more exchanges could take place with the teachers, volunteers and schoolmates.  Thank you for a variety of teachers and volunteers.  Thank you for many smiles.
I bring my second daughter "Lily" to the school.  She is happy in her class.  She also really loves Mrs. Kristy and other teachers.  The American School for Women and Children gives much variety and many hugs to us.
When I return to Japan, I want to volunteer somewhere where people can be happy like this school.  I want to see a lot of smiles.  I also want to thank the office staff.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and joy to the world.

In brief, you should know the following about us: the American School for Women and Children was established in 2003 and has been responsible for providing outstanding ESL (English as a Second Language) education ever since. Our specialty is in the area of conversational and functional English. Our adult students who are moms particularly value our Early Education Department for their preschool children.

Excellence in Everything
At ASFWC, we are committed to excellence in all that we do.  Our adult students regularly move up in proficiency levels.  Our preschool children leave us well prepared for kindergarten.
