“In a career spanning 25 years and residing and working in 7 countries across the world parents often ask me, ‘What makes a great international school?’ My answer is it’s the people who make up each learning community reach this lofty goal of greatness.
From our very special children who strive each day to do their best to be their best. To the teachers and teaching assistant who never accept anything less than excellence for themselves and their charges. To the administrative staff and auxiliary staff who know they are part of something quite special when working with delightful and inquisitive children. To the student’s parents who support and contribute so widely to our whole community. To Globeducate, who place educational excellence at the heart of their mission.
Coupled with outstanding facilities and learning environments I believe we have a great international school.”
