Our educational philosophy centres on four core values: Educational Excellence, Global Readiness, Co-curricular Excellence and an Education in Values.

Educational Excellence forms the foundation of our curriculum and is the principal focus of our teaching methodologies. Students are provided with the knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to fulfil their maximum intellectual and academic potential.

The second core value, fundamental to all Globeducate, is Global Preparation. Our schools offer an extensive range of foreign languages, with total immersion in the primary languages, to enrich and enhance our students’ learning experience. Most classes are taught in English, with additional classes in Chinese, French and German, by qualified native or bilingual teachers.

Our third core value is Co-curricular Excellence. In addition to the music lessons that form part of the main school curriculum, where all students learn an instrument, (with a particular emphasis on stringed instruments), we work in close collaboration with the Fabordón Music School. The Fabordón Music School is an official Elementary Music Conservatory, which caters for students who want to extend their musical skill, knowledge and understanding. We believe that sports and the creative arts also play a crucial role in the formation of well-rounded, well-educated individuals and these subjects therefore feature prominently in both our main curriculum and in our extracurricular programmes.

Finally, the schools belonging to the Globeducate Group share a common belief than an Education in Values is fundamental to educating confident, compassionate and well-rounded young people. We aim to provide our students with the skills they need to become independent citizens, capable of analytical and critical thought and with the ability to take their places as confident professionals in today’s global community. We believe that competence and fluency in language is crucial to achieve this goal. Similarly, we believe that our students should be taught how to use new technologies safely and efficiently, and ICT is incorporated into the curriculum as part of day-to-day learning at the school to improve performance and efficiency.

Educational Excellence

Educational Excellence at Agora International School Madrid is achieved by selecting the very best teaching and learning methodologies and by employing outstanding teaching staff.

Gerard O’Donnell

Headmaster of Agora International School Madrid

“I have always known that the essence of the school is its teachers and their close and friendly relationships with us, the pupils. That’s why I will always remember the jokes in class, the trips and the off-topic conversations.”
