    I see there are many people interested in learning about St George British School which I am happy to share. My two children, 6 and 4, both attend. We are new to the school having just moved to Barcelona from the states this summer. Both children are doing very well at the school and really seem to enjoy it. They experience a perfect balance between academics and creative play while interacting with classmates from all over the world. I find the curriculum to be slightly ahead of what children in America are learning at this age, which is good! My six year old has one hour of Spanish every day and my four year old has one hour four times each week. I believe after Year One, my son will also have some Catalan teaching introduced. Although we do not plan to live in Barcelona permanently, it is nice he will gain some knowledge of the local language.

    We chose St George School because they offered a very well rounded education that was consistent with American curriculum in an environment that feels like a family. While the school grounds are not enormous compared to BSB or ASB, my children have gained the confidence to feel at home there by recognizing the Head Master, many of the teachers and even the cooks in the kitchen! That to me was of higher priority than attending a school with fancy resources and a huge futbol field. ( Lauren)

    Are they moving the facilities to another location? They’ve told me they are acquiring the facilities of a previous school near Reina Elisenda station.

    Thanks (Nuria)
