The school’s mission is to be the leading culturally diverse and family-oriented international school with English as the principal language of instruction. The school inspires young individuals to develop their intellect, creativity, and character to become independent, adaptable, socially responsible, and internationally minded citizens, by ensuring a dynamic, inquiry-driven education of the highest standard.

This is intended to provide general information. Prospective users of the schools may wish to inquire further of A/OPR/OS or contact the school directly for more specific and up-to-the-minute information. Information and statistics are current as of March 2023 and provided by the school.

NOTE: School situations can change quickly, particularly as schools face cutbacks to learning support programs due to the pandemic, unrest, and economic uncertainty. For the most current information, work with the REO and school. Information in this document was collected by the Department of State’s Office of Overseas Schools directly from the school in spring 2023 and shows the availability of services rather than an assessment of the quality of the services. The profile is intended as a jumping off point for a conversation with the REO and school to understand the best fit for your child. Definitions may vary school to school.
