About International College Spain
International College Spain was founded in 1980 and is the leading international school in Madrid. We offer primary and secondary education to a genuine international community of more than 70 nationalities. Our school is the only one in Madrid to offer an international curriculum throughout the whole age range in English by means of the three International Baccalaureate Programmes. Our programme prepares students for study at leading universities worldwide, for leadership in communities and high profile positions in companies globally. The philosophy of the school is to provide students with a high quality international education which places a strong emphasis on fostering respect for other people’s identity and culture. This is achieved through the provision of a challenging curriculum which develops critical, principled thinking within a positive learning environment and which addresses the students’ academic, social, emotional, physical, technological, aesthetic and moral needs.
