At the ABC, our mission is to change the world by building responsible outstanding citizens, through our commitment to a values-based and holistic learning experience. The ABC has a carefully designed curriculum that provides a natural continuum between a world-class Early Years provision (based on the UK's Early Years Foundation Stage but also heavily influenced by the Reggio Emilia play-based approach to learning) through to MYP and the IB Diploma. The curriculum is supported by a wide range of co-curricular and extra-curricular enrichment experiences including international trips, community service, sports, and visual and performing arts. The school also has a Learning Support Unit comprising 6 highly-qualified professionals to support students with their emotional and learning needs. The learning journey at the ABC nurtures a strong sense of care and respect for oneself, others and society through the demonstration, application and development of our values.
Situated on a beautiful 13 acre site, the ABC is equipped with science laboratories, libraries, a theater, a performing arts center, a large multi-purpose auditorium, swimming pools and sports facilities. Faculty is mainly from the UK and El Salvador but includes a range of nationalities from around the world. The language of instruction throughout the school is predominantly English. The ABC is fully accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) as well as being a member of the Latin American Heads Conference (LAHC) and the International Values-based Education Trust (IVET).
Our dedicated Guidance Counsellors support our students to ensure they find the best fit university for them. Our graduates receive offers of admission from universities in countries all over the world including Columbia, Pennsylvania, Stamford, Berkeley, Notre Dame, Duke, Edinburgh and Durham.
We are a true example of an internationally minded community, as recognised in our latest evaluation review from the IB:
