Staff and students from several countries share their divergent roots to attain the common goal of an education with environmental awareness and global accord.
We aim to develop the individual talents of each student and teach them to relate the experience of the classroom to the realities of the world outside. Therefore we frequently organize hands-on activities.
Weekly Assemblies: Every Friday the whole school comes together to share discussions about things going on in the school, the community, and the world at large. We frequently invite people to provide the audience with interesting and colorful presentations of their cultural background, their travel experiences, their profession, or a project they are involved in.
