For second year in a row since the prestigious FORBES magazine released their list of Best Schools in Spain, The English Montessori School has been listed among the Best 100 Schools 2022.
Our school has been selected to be part of this exclusive list for providing an international and multilingual enviroment for our students, and with a practical and experimental educational system, where the student is the protagonist of his or her learning.
Forbes has analysed more than 300 schools in the whole of Spain, “according to the criteria that best define excellence in the 21st century.” A committee of pedagogues, psychologists and education professionals have been in charge of drawing up this list, based on “36 objective criteria dissected into seven blocks”. These blocks highlight the pupil-teacher ratio, the attention to students’ needs and learning support, the percentage of students who complete their school life in school, the academic results, the languages taught, the approach to digital learning, the personal development programme, the facilities and the school services, among others.
The English Montessori School in the FORBES list:
“TEMS offers a special combination of a British curriculum, recognised as a symbol of educational excellence throughout the world, and the Montessori spirit, a prestigious method that develops children with emotional intelligence. Students grow up in an international, multilingual, practical and experiential educational environment, where the student is the protagonist of their learning.
The school accepts students between the ages of three and 18 and combines the Montessori method for children up to the age of six, and British education up to the Baccalaureate, with the possibility of choosing between A Levels and the Spanish Baccalaureate.”
Cognita Schools also included in the FORBES list
This year we are delighted to share this recognition with seven other schools of our Cognita family in Spain: Hastings School, Colegio Europeo de Madrid (CEM) and Mirasur School, all of them in Madrid; British School of Barcelona, British School of Valencia; El Limonar International School Murcia and El Limonar International School Villamartín in Alicante.
One of the Best Schools in Spain
This is not the first time that TEMS and the Cognita schools have been listed among the best schools in Spain by different prestigious rankings this year. Only recently TEMS was ranked among The 30 Best International Schools in Spain by the prestigious national newspaper “El Mundo”.
