Brains International Schools is an educational project dedicated to teaching children how to develop their own physical and mental well-being and to become life-long learners. Four decades after its founding, Brains Schools has earned a reputation for being at the forefront of innovation in bilingual education and social-emotional learning. Living in today's complex and interconnected global village requires that educational methods develop the whole child and instill in each child a growth mindset to face the future with confidence and competence. Brains Schools has risen to this challenge.
Brains International School La Moraleja is located in the pleasant northern suburbs of Madrid, and well connected by the public bus and underground services. The school prides itself on its superb facilities for both educational and sporting excellence, whilst enjoying a modern and relaxed atmosphere within the school community.
Whilst the school is recognised as bilingual by the Spanish education curriculum, students on the Diploma programme are often from overseas and able to follow an entirely English curriculum, and with the option of Spanish B at both standard and high levels.
Students are able to specialise and diversify between subject groups, as subjects are offered at both SL and HL in either English or Spanish, and cover a large range of options in each subject group. We pride ourselves on innovation in education, and are constantly developing our programme to fit the needs of the student community. Recently we have added Self-taught Language A, Sports Exercise and Health Science, and Design and Technology to our list of options.
The success in the Diploma programme since first examinations in 2013 has set the path for a whole school IB community. Furthermore, Brains International school has developed programmes in La Moraleja for both PYP and MYP under the Spanish national curriculum, with full immersion of the programmes in their second years. We are also very proud of our Maria Lombillo site in the heart of Madrid, which received authorisation for the Diploma programme last year, opening a magnificent new wing entirely devoted to Diploma students (see Brains International School Maria Lombillo for more info).
