The ABC is a selective, mixed bi-lingual and bi-cultural school offering places from Pre-Kinder to Grade 12. The student body is predominantly Salvadorian with a number of international students attending the school. The school community is international in its values and its outlook and seeks to promote a spirit of cooperation and understanding in our world. Approximately one third of the teaching staff is British expatriate and the school has a tradition of high academic standards through its strong links with international education and Great Britain. The school is committed to continue to providing a high quality bilingual education programme throughout the age ranges with appropriate guidance and support.

The school is accredited by the Council of International Schools and is an International Baccalaureate Diploma World School. The language of instruction throughout the school is predominantly English with Spanish being used for a small number of classes. We are developing bilingual students who can operate confidently in both languages and we follow the most up to date educational practices throughout our school but especially in the Early Years. We prefer our children to start their educational journey with us in Pre Kinder so we can help them learn effectively and confidently in both languages from as young an age as possible.  

Our Early Years facilities have recently been rebuilt and we have state of the art classrooms which we hope you will find the time to come and visit. These twenty first century classrooms provide an environment where children have space to develop their talents and participate in a wide variety of learning experiences. Our children, parents  and staff love them!

Our ABC school vision is to produce "responsible and outstanding citizens" by living up to our motto and firm belief that “Effort Leads to Success”, which is why our staff constantly encourage our students to do their best in everything they do. We provide a well-balanced education that includes academics, sports, music, traits and values as well as respect at all times for oneself and those around us. Our graduates do indeed go out into the world as responsible outstanding citizens and regularly are offered places at the best universities around the world. 

Applications for Pre Kinder, our main entry point, usually start early in the preceding year and often places are limited. It is therefore sensible to apply early. Whichever Grade you are considering I encourage you to contact me by e-mail (estefaniachacon@abc-net.edu.sv) or telephone ([503] 2201-6213) to schedule a tour and find out more about us. Applications are open to all families who support our positive approach to educating children and support our values.
I look forward to helping you join our ABC community.
Kind regards,

Estefanía Chacón
