LETTER FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL

Dear parents,

The English School would like to welcome you to this website.  It is our way of showing the world what we represent and our goals as a school.

Our school is independent, mixed and international, and therefore, multicultural, where the British Curriculum is used as a tool for teaching.

Academic success is a matter of great importance for The English School.  In order to achieve this goal, a key factor is an appropriate environment. We are proud of the family atmosphere which exists in our school community.  Here we promote respect, personal responsibility, self-discipline and the enjoyment of learning.
