School Notes:

  • We are dedicated to providing high-quality bilingual education and instilling the respect and comprehension of individual values and of different cultures.
  • A bilingual education is more than just mastering two languages; it leads to a better understanding, tolerance, and open-mindedness towards others.
  • Our philosophy is to develop self-confidence, to teach respect for one another, to encourage the discovery of other cultural values and to awaken an enthusiasm for learning.
