Curriculum UK King's College, The British School of Panama is part of King's Group. With over 45 years of experience, our schools create an environment that inspires pupils, giving them the confidence and enthusiasm to achieve the highest possible academic results. It is the only COBIS accredited school in the Republic of Panama and joins a select group of only 5 schools in North, Central and South America.
The British School of Panama, located in the residential suburb of Clayton, is just 10 minutes' drive from the centre of Panama City.
At present the school educates children from Nursery (age 3) through to Year 10 (aged 14-15).
The school is the seventh in the King's Group and will continue to grow, to eventually educate pupils from age 3 to 18 years old, where they shall complete their IGCSEs and A levels, to help them secure entrance to top universities around the globe, as our sister school currently does in Madrid.
Much more than buildings and grounds, establishing a new school requires experience, understanding and leadership. The best schools are, without exception, filled with happy children who love going to school. These are the children who will achieve the highest grades and go on to do great things. Happy children are busy children. The best teachers make sure that their pupils discover new things, explore new ways of seeing and learn to love the process of learning itself.
All of the teaching staff have British teaching qualifications and recent experience of delivering the English national curriculum.
King's College understands how to work with local governments and communities, ensuring that our schools comply with local as well as British standards.
We believe that child-centered, exploratory learning teaches young people how to think, question and explore new ideas. All learning is based upon these core skills; not simply a list of memorised facts, but knowledge and understanding. We give your son or daughter the best possible chance to reach their full potential, as an independent thinking and conscientious young person.
