We are an extraordinary school.
The school is fully accredited by the Council of International Schools (C.I.S.) and N.E.A.S.C. (New England Association of Schools and Colleges).
Life at the school offers a unique perspective and insight into island life, and particularly the fascinating city of Havana.
Contracts were signed last May by the school with Inmobiliaria PALCO for a five building premises located on a single campus with two access points: one on 3rd Avenue (between 20 and 22) and the other on Calle 22 (between 3rd and 1st) here in Miramar. The new buildings will eventually allow us to expand the school, and will be the Senior Campus. Of course, the buildings are in need of considerable renovation, and so will probably not be ready for use until the start of school year 2017-2018.
