From February 2012 until December 2015, I was the Head of Science at St. George’s College, Quilmes. St. George’s is an independent co-educational day and boarding school with a British educational ethos, following the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program in Kindergarten and Preparatory, an integrated curriculum following the Argentine Ministry of Education Guidelines in lower secondary enhanced by aspects of the English National Curriculum, and in middle to upper secondary the IGCSE and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. Since its founding in 1898, St. George’s has gained a reputation for being one of the leading schools in Latin America.
Most of our students are Argentine but we have a small number from the USA, Europe, Asia and other Latin American countries. It serves over 800 students from early years through to secondary and employs over 100 teaching staff from Argentina and across the world, offering a first class bilingual education.
Combining a respect for tradition with a forward looking approach to education, St. George’s offers both national and international programmes. Most of our students are day pupils but it is one of the very few schools on the Latin American continent which has maintained its boarding tradition.
“St George’s College is a private, non-profit, bilingual, co-educational, learning institution with a long tradition in providing a well-rounded and demanding education. It delivers an international curriculum of high standards, which seeks to develop strong ethical values and character integrity, in order to allow its students to become useful and successful citizens”.
