  • At Magellan, we look at every child as being exceptional. Our inspiring international faculty are guides who encourage students to believe in their own talents and to take ownership of their own unique paths of learning. We strive to give each of our students numerous opportunities to develop their individual interests and to cultivate them through a curriculum of inquiry and engagement as well as enrichment and extra-curricular activities. Magellan sets high expectations for ourselves and our students as we push boundaries to deliver a rigorous, international education which fosters critical and creative thinking. The School encourages students to accept differences, inspire and lead our community, and to contribute with their daily actions to creating a better community and a better world.
