Our school

Welcome to IA

Our mission is to train people of integrity, committed to society, who know how to live in a multicultural environment, who are aware of their capacity to adapt to change, who are responsible for their learning, who are emotionally intelligent and who are appropriately guided towards the challenges of the 21st century.

We welcome you to Aravaca International, an educational project of great academic rigour characterised by our dedication to the learning and personal development of our students.

If there is one thing that characterises us, it is to be in constant training in order to offer our students the best possible education for their professional success, creating educational experiences that open their minds as global citizens aware of themselves and the world around them.

Our students are recognised as caring and informed citizens who contribute to building a better world through intercultural understanding and respect, with an international mindset in accordance with the principles of the international programmes we offer. (*)

The school’s great team of professionals provides constant support and commitment to students and families, which makes us a close and familiar school.

We look forward to seeing you.

(*) The IB mission statement The International Baccalaureate (IB) aims to develop caring, knowledgeable and informed young people who can contribute to a better and more peaceful world through mutual understanding and intercultural respect. In pursuit of this goal, the organisation works with schools, governments and international organisations to create and develop challenging international education programmes and rigorous assessment methods. These programmes encourage students around the world to be active lifelong learners, to be compassionate and to understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

Why choose us?

International Aravaca’s educational project is based on 5 solid pillars, with which we achieve the “educational excellence” that guarantees the success of our pupils, in the social, personal and academic dimensions.

IA Multilingual: Because we are citizens of the world, we have a wide range of languages: English, French and German, as well as subjects in which English is the vehicular language. We take official exams.

IA Methodology: Because we do not all learn in the same way, we are committed to new methodologies, where the student takes on the leading role and the teacher becomes a motivating guide. In this personalised learning process, each student sets their own pace and it is the student who discovers, investigates, compares and resolves.

IA Tech: Because digital competence is vital to train citizens who can integrate and respond to the demands of society.

IA Skills: Because their skills will mark their destiny. We work conscientiously on the skills that will open many doors in the students’ future. Competence learning, cooperative work, conflict resolution, public speaking and creativity.

IA Together: Because we live in community, comprehensive education includes social programmes, welcoming new families and pupils, coexistence programmes.

What makes us unique?

Adaptation to multicultural environments, an active attitude to learning, high socio-emotional development, flexibility, perseverance and confidence, all framed in an environment adapted to the times we live in and with technology and multilingualism as fundamental pillars, are the characteristics that define us and give us the courage to believe that we are on the right path to get the best out of our students, enhance their abilities and provide them with the necessary skills to function in the world in the best way possible.
