Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

St George’s College North is an independent, co-educational day school situated on a stunning campus with purpose-built buildings and ample playing fields. Since its founding in 1990 St George’s College North has gained a reputation for itself as one of the leading schools in Buenos Aires. Many experienced contract teachers from abroad work alongside Argentine colleagues to give the College a truly international atmosphere. Although the majority of pupils are Argentine St George's also caters for international students. At least 50% of the classes are taught in English.

Teaching approach of the school

St George's offers a first class bilingual education, whilst paying special attention to the formation and development of children’s characters through an extensive tutor and pastoral system. The integrated curriculum that it has developed fulfills the basic requirements of the Argentine system and adds the rigour of the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma examinations.
