We are renowned for our students’ outstanding academic success as recognized both nationally and internationally by the International Baccalaureate Organization’s rigorous accreditation process, external assessments conducted by the Regional Government of Madrid as well as English, French, German and Chinese external exam results.

Our inquiry-based learning and active methodologies are essential for students to develop the competencies, skills and knowledge necessary to solve the challenges they will face in the 21st century. The ongoing review of our Intelligent Classroom method and innovative learning methodology is detailed in the SEK Future Learning Model , designed to educate upstanding students who are creative, critical, digitally competent, good communicators and internationally minded.
