Authentically International Atmosphere
Truly an international school, we promote a culture of international awareness and celebration. Our students receive an authentic international experience within a diverse school community and from the use of the Global Classroom, our international online education program.

International Curricula
An engaging curriculum, coupled with our high expectations and academic standards, enables our students to meet and exceed their potential, performing well beyond expectations for their age. Students in our network of schools have an outstanding track record of success, with International Baccalaureate exam scores among the top 5% in the world and acceptances into the most prestigious colleges and universities in the US and abroad.

Differentiated Learning
In other schools, teachers and textbooks determine what students learn. Our lessons are planned and presented according to how each student learns. While allowing students to develop other learning styles, we personalize learning to each child so they understand their own specific learning goals, can articulate them, and recognize the strategies they need to learn best.

Love of Learning
We believe that students should know how they learn and develop a lifelong love of learning because learning and changing is fundamental to 21st century success. As partners in their education with teachers and parents, our students learn how to actively participate in their present and acquire skills for the future.

Our Staff
Highly-skilled in differentiated learning styles, our teachers instill a love of learning, encourage independent enquiry and use a learning-focused approach that ensures your child actively participates in the learning process.
