Parent Ambassadors

 

We understand that choosing a school is a very big decision. It can be helpful to talk to other parents that have already chosen our school and who, together with their children, have experienced our community for themselves.

Meanwhile, please meet one of our Parent Ambassadors, Mr Angel Lanchas, in a short interview below.

Parent Ambassador

When did your family join CDL? 

We moved to Geneva from Spain in September 2005 due to my job. My assignment was only for two years, but things went better than expected! Moreover, my kids were very happy at CDL, which became the main reason for us to stay here as local employees in 2011.

How many children have you enroled in CDL? 

Four children. Cayetana & Bosco (2005-2020 now alumni), Jacobo (2007-2022), Jimena (2014 - Present)
 
Why did you become a Parent Ambassador? 

With more than almost 17 years of CDL experience and being present through the evolution of my children (from Pre-school to High School graduate), I wanted to express my gratitude to CDL and share with the community the "state-of-the-art" education that my children received at CDL. My children are fully equipped with not only a solid education and languages but with a set of high values and moral standards. The "sine qua non" condition makes a real difference in the world.

What is your best experience at CDL? 

The fact that my children always remember CDL as one of the best journeys in their lives. As parents, this is one of the best rewards we can receive.  Definitely, we chose the right education for them.


Parent Academy

  • CDL gives us the opportunity to try new sports. I tried badminton, squash, tennis, wakeboarding, horse riding for 2 years, so there are lots of possibilities. For me CDL is like my second family.
