Our teachers come from all over the globe and provide a truly international learning experience for students. Mainstream teachers are required to have current certification in their area. Co-teachers/assistants and co-curricular teachers are encouraged to obtain certification if not already certified. Our teachers are experienced, dedicated professionals carefully chosen to act as role models and mentors. They are dedicated to the academic, social, physical and emotional development of our students in order to help them become enthusiastic, well-rounded, life-long learners.
