Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

St. Andrew's Scots School was established by a group of Scottish settlers determined to educate their children in their language, their culture and their faith. On the 1st of September 1838, thirteen years after the arrival of those settlers, a tiny school was opened in the Presbyterian Church, at Piedras 55 in the city of Buenos Aires. The first pupils were girls, but the school rapidly became co-educational.

Teaching approach of the school

St. Andrew's Scots School aims to graduate responsible citizens committed to serving Argentina and contributing to its equitable development through a well-balanced, bilingual education which meets high international standards and fosters a joy for learning.
Pupils are taught to inquire deeply, work responsibly and care for others, themselves and the environment. St. Andrew's builds their character in a diverse and respectful community, expecting high standards of discipline and commitment, supporting them to reach their full potential and nurturing their intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual dimensions.
The ethic and moral foundations of St. Andrew's Scots School are anchored in its Presbyterian heritage, rooted in the Sacred Scriptures.
