The MET was founded in 2011 with a vision of creating an international school of excellence, staffed with the best teachers, and where each child would feel included, happy, motivated and inspired to learn.
Within the first three years, the MET earned status as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, part of a community of international schools with the reputation of delivering the highest standards of education. The MET became the first and only school in Panama and Central America to offer the IB Continuum in English, authorized to offer the IB Primary Years Program (PYP), Middle Years Program (MYP) and Diploma Program (DP), positioning the MET within a special group of schools worldwide.
In 2017, the MET joined Nord Anglia Education (NAE), the world's leading schools organization, uniting with over 75 other outstanding schools in 31 countries around the world. Nord Anglia’s global family of schools share a common commitment and philosophy that there is no limit to what our students can achieve.
In 2020, the MET moved to the new 5-hectare campus in Green Valley. Our new home offers innovative school design, state-of-the-art facilities and a world-class learning experience.
