Team Culture

Creative Collaboration

  We are innovative, autonomous thinkers of varying skills and interests that creates the most balanced team possible and fosters new ideas. Therefore, our students are supported on all fronts and encouraged to explore more than just academics. .

Globalized Team

Cross cultural competency is key to our diverse team, as most members have studied or lived abroad. We know that communicating effectively across national, ethnic, socioeconomic and other borders is essential to success.

Student Development

We have a sincere commitment to inspiring creativity, leadership, adaptability, and self-confidence in our students. We understand that important lessons are not always taught in a classroom.

Educational Passion

Our methods are researched based and constantly adapted to create the best curriculum possible. Most members have at least five years of teaching experience, but all have a passion for education.
