SEK Education Group, to which the SEK International School Atlántico belongs, offers all educational stages, from 4 months to 18 years of age. SEK-Atlántico is the only school in Galicia authorised to teach three International Baccalaureate Organisation programmes (PYP, MYP and DP).

SEK International Schools are committed to offering each student a learning experience focused on personal perfection, preparing for success in later life. Very close to Pontevedra and Vigo, between the sea and the mountains, SEK-Atlántico boasts modern and functional school spaces and buildings.

Students are afforded a bilingual education and learn to live with other cultures from an early age. The school places great importance on students' oral and written expression, fostering fluent and correct expression in different languages. Considered a standard in educational innovation in Galicia, SEK-Atlántico offers learning in Galician, Spanish, English and French from year 3 of Primary.

The SEK education model is based on a shared principle for all years: the leading role played by students. They discover for themselves, build and organise their own knowledge, with expert mediation from teachers.

SEK-Atlántico students share facilities designed for their physical, social and creative development: makerspace, pyschomotor skills classroom for the little ones, dining room, laboratories, music and painting room, library, language classrooms, Learning Lab and large indoor and outdoor sports areas.

Technological spaces are integrated in the day to day of the school and are designed to make the most of their possibilities: absolute portability, tactile use compatible with any space (floor, carpet, table, etc.) and use of keyboards in netbooks and laptops.

From the second year of Primary to Baccalaureate, SEK-Atlántico students prepare for their Cambridge University Examinations. As of Secondary school and in Baccalaureate they can also opt to take the Alliance Française Diplôme d'etude de langue française.
