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 focusing on our students' wellbeing and helping them discover their individual learning paths. We are expanding project based learning, Design and Technology and Education for Sustainable Development, instilling a culture of healthy lifestyle choices. We keep developing our campuses to meet the needs of our highly demanding programmes, and continue to develop a closely knit community influenced by the diversity of our families. We appreciate the richness of diversity and promote international mindedness as we currently have 11% of international families in Olivos and 19% in Nordelta.

Kindergarten Education

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

Primary Education

Our integral curriculum is 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.

While we constantly pursue academic excellence, NORTHLANDS embraces many different programmes where students can develop a variety of skills. We consider Physical Education as an integral part of education as the well being of our students is accomplished through physical, mental and emotional balance. The Visual & Performing Arts Programme stimulates children to find alternative ways to express themselves. As students mature, they have the opportunity to explore visual arts, music and drama through a variety of techniques, instruments and cultures. Our Design & Technology Programme seeks to build a culture of innovation through the implementation of different techno-educational abilities such as construction, designing, programming and robotics, where students apply them to the real world by investigating digital solutions. Finally, our Personal & Social Education Programme is a central part of the comprehensive education that NORTHLANDS aims for its students. We help develop the values of integrity based on high moral standards enabling our children to freely choose what is right.
