Accreditation Experience

Written by Carlos Prats Redondo. Posted in News

MSA logoTwo of our teachers, Daniela Zúñiga and Diana Carles, have been abroad this past week in Paris and Madrid, respectively, to participate as team members in the reaccredidation of  Marymount International School (Paris) and the accreditation of Aquinas American School (Madrid). 

Daniela Zúñiga has participated in representation of a Middle States Association team (MSA) in collaboration with team members from the Council of International Schools (CIS), both of which organizations have recommended Marymount International School for accreditation; Diana Carles has participated in representation of a Middle States Association team (MSA) in a follow-up visit from October that has enabled Aquinas American School to be recommended for accreditation.  

It has been a successful and fruitful venture for both parties. We extend our congratulations to these schools as well as to our teachers for their hard work.

Students' Blogs

Written by Carlos Prats Redondo. Posted in News


Following one the recommendations given to us by the Accreditation Team that visited our School last year, we have implemented the relation between the different departments by creating a blog for practically every student. Teachers ask our students to compose articles about different subjects and topics. The preferred areas to write articles are: History, Literature, Science, Music and Latin.

Everyone is welcome to check these blogs and to make comments to the entries. Click on the picture above to follow the links to the master blog

School Science Laboratory

Written by Carlos Prats Redondo. Posted in News

Over the last few years we have been developing our School Science Laboratory to provide practical experience and demonstrations of some of the chemistry, physics and biology topics that form the Science curriculum.

With the premise that a picture is worth a thousand words, seeing or carrying out a demonstration can be more informative that just hearing about it.

With the generosity of a number of people and organisations, we are gradually accumulating a wide variety of apparatus, equipment and chemicals.

AmoebaOn of the pieces of equipment recently provided is a digital microscope that plugs into a computer, allowing us to view an objet or slide at up to 200 x magnification directly on a computer monitor screen. This means that the whole class can view the item at once rather that queuing to look down a conventional microscope. We can also capture the picture and save it for viewing at another time. This way we are building a library of images, an example is this picture of Amoeba.

Assessment Tests

Written by Carlos Prats Redondo. Posted in News

test06SLS Primary, Middle and High School students have just finished a series of external assessment tests (Writing Aptitude Test for Primary School; ReadiStep, a preparatory exam for the preliminary SAT, for Middle School; and the actual Preliminary SAT for High School) that will ensure their academic success since such tests provide information about their strengths and weaknesses in vital curricular areas such as Writing, Math, and Critical Thinking. When results arrive, we all at SLS (Administration, Parents, Teachers, Students…) will analyze these results and compare them in terms of individual student progress as well as how such progress fits within the classroom and the curriculum. These tests are a reliable way to compare and contrast our goals while maintaining our quality standards.
