Mission and Philosophy

The words from Marcel Decombis which express the essential aims of the European Schools have been sealed, in parchment, into the foundation stones of all the schools:

“Educated side by side, untroubled from infancy by divisive prejudices, acquainted with all that is great and good in the different cultures, it will be borne in upon them as they mature that they belong together. Without ceasing to look to their own lands with love and pride, they will become in mind Europeans, schooled and ready to complete and consolidate the work of their fathers before them, to bring into being a united and thriving Europe.”

By placing the child at the heart of learning, and transmitting humanistic values to him, our school prepares pupils for developing a spirit of openness, tolerance and respect and preparing them for an internationally recognised diploma.

Promoting the international dimension, innovation and encouraging pupils´ autonomy and responsibility are essential elements of our educational plan.
