NORTHLANDS is a coeducational, bilingual IB World School that, through caring and innovative teaching, educates young people to the full extent of their individual potential. It is a school that values its Anglo-Argentine roots, while respecting all cultures, religions and nationalities. It offers an all-encompassing friendly environment reflected in its motto: Friendship & Service.

We aim to strengthen our position as leaders in education and innovation by achieving outstanding international examination results, obtaining international credits, focusing on state-of-the-art technology, expanding our Education for Sustainable Development Projects, instilling a culture of healthy lifestyle choices, developing our campuses to meet the needs of our highly demanding programmes, and continuing to develop a closely knit community influenced by the diversity of our families.

Kindergarten Education

An all-embracing curriculum that works on physical, social, emotional, intellectual, ethic and aesthetic aspects through teaching and learning strategies focused on encouraging curiosity and the desire to know in children.

Primary Education

Our integral curriculum based on inquiry and research as the ideal vehicles for learning. We provide a caring and stimulating environment where children enjoy doing their work and develop positive academic and interpersonal attitudes, self-confidence and self-discipline.

Secondary Education

During this phase students develop critical thinking skills, creativity and autonomy. Individual talents and personal interests are nurtured so that students can make satisfactory career choices at the end of their school life.

Physical Education as an integral part of education

Our students participate in interhouse, national and international inter-school events which promote team spirit and healthy competition.

We understand that wellbeing is acquired through physical, mental and emotional balance and encourage our students to make healthy lifestyle choices.

Visual & Performing Arts

In Art classes at NORTHLANDS, we stimulate our students to find alternative and different ways in which to express themselves.

The initial learning process is based on games to learn and experiment different disciplines. As students mature, they have the opportunity to explore visual arts, music and drama through a variety of techniques, instruments and cultures.

D-Learning Model 1:1

We implement a1:1 model from Year 2 to Year 12. The aim is to improve the way they learn, making responsible use of 21 Century digital technologies.

Robotics Ed Tech Programme

Students have the opportunity to develop skills in construction, design, programming and start-up of robots, while learning logical processes.

Personal & Social Education Programme

This is a central part of the comprehensive education and through a well-defined programme, our students develop integrity based on high moral standards enabling them to freely choose what is right.

Spanish Immersion

We offer the teaching of Spanish language according to the needs of each student. Emphasis is placed on the child's ability to communicate and self-confidence.

Peer Friend Programme

Designed to accompany children when they join our School, and associate new pupils and their families with the NORTHLANDS community so that they can start the new School year with confidence and make their social integration a smooth process.

Global Citizenship

We appreciate the richness of diversity and promote international mindedness. Currently around 11% of our families coming from 18 countries in our Olivos site are international, and 19% coming from 28 countries in Nordelta.
