Mission & values
  1. 01.

    We view each personality as a pivotal and key factor in all our decisions and actions. We think that only motivated teachers can properly deliver a high quality education and inspire students, leading to happy parents.

  2. 02.

    We act as mindful and caring stewards toward everything that depends on us: from school property to our relations with others and our own behaviour. We display leadership by taking responsibility for doing things that we realise need to be done. We respect the law and ensure all our decisions and actions comply with local laws and regulations.

  3. 03.
    Globally-minded and diverse

    We respectfully celebrate every nationality acknowledging the fundamental role and importance of the culture of the communities in which we live. We regard everyone as a person with equal rights, freedoms, and opportunities no matter their gender, age, nation, culture, or religion. We consider cultural, national, and gender diversity a valuable asset.

  4. 04.

    We explore new opportunities for better education and work. We try new things that we believe can benefit our students, parents, employees, and partners. For us education goes beyond the classroom. We trust there is always a better way of doing what we do.

  5. 05.

    We embrace dialogue with others, encouraging the free and respectful exchange of opinions and ideas.
