Sotogrande International School
The Sotogrande International School community consists of more than 35 different nationalities. In a world where borders are disappearing, the mix of nationalities and backgrounds offers a welcome breath of cultural experiences to the school community. This enables students to develop an understanding and appreciation of the cultural diversity that surrounds them and to have respect for the values of other cultures, races, religions and ways of life.
Students follow inter-disciplinary programs that bring together the important academic subjects in a coherent and integrated manner. Through a rich curriculum, the school aims to develop in students an enduring inter-cultural awareness, a spirit of inquiry and a sense of community service and global environmental responsibility.
The school is proud of the academic achievements of its graduates who have entered top universities around the world. This reflects the strong academic and guidance programs offered by SIS, enabling students to achieve their best. ‘We have an outstanding purpose-built, high-technology campus designed to reflect our philosophy of collaborative learning that develops independent, high-achieving, globally aware, lifelong learners.’
Quote from the School: â€śSotogrande International School is an International Baccalaureate (IB) school offering all three programmes; Primary years, Middle years and Diploma. Whilst we are primarily a day school serving students living here on the Costa del Sol, we are also the only IB Boarding School in Spain. Our youngest students are just three years old, and many stay with us until they graduate at 18 with an IB Diploma. Our track record to top class universities in UK, Spain, Europe and USA is impressive. We have an outstanding Performing Arts programme, where students genuinely have opportunities to follow their passions in music, theatre and visual arts. Our golf academy SIGA continues to nurture fine young golfers and we number several AndalucĂan and Spanish champions in our Elite Squad. Sport features very strongly in our education programme. As an Apple school, students have access to the best IT teaching and opportunities to excel at filmmaking, recording and programming. SIS is unique in having its own NGO, The Kindred Project, which has as its mission statement ‘promoting education as a force for good.â€ť
