We are a part of the small, but growing English-speaking population in Madagascar and ensure that all our teachers are well-integrated to create a strong community feeling.

Our philosophy is based on equipping students with the necessary skills to become independent-thinking global citizens of the future. We focus on a child-centred approach, immersing students in the English language and British culture.

Our mission is to fulfil the potential of each child by allowing them to learn through the world-beating Pearson Curriculum and our varied and engaging extra-curricular program.
