Our core values and high-quality up-to-date international educational practices, enable children at our schools to achieve their academic ambitions and lifetime careers. Alongside this aim, we nurture the talents of our pupils and understand the importance of supporting all aspects of the child, with attention taken to encourage their physical, emotional and social development.

King's College School, Panama, is excited to lead the way in premium, global education in the region. For more than 50 years, King's College Schools have spearheaded excellence in international education with widespread success. We are proud to be in our world-class campus to coincide with our tenth anniversary in Panama.

Our ambition is to create a school that students and staff look forward to being part of every day. The Inspired Three Pillars approach to education, comprising Academics, Sport and Performing & Creative Arts, is underpinned by an ethos that creates a rich and transformative learning experience for every student. We strive to cultivate their inner passions and develop new ambitions.

Our global outlook is derived from the expertise and support of the Inspired education group. When students join King's College, Panama, they also become part of an exciting transnational student community that connects them to a world of opportunities. Inspired’s forward-thinking approach gives our students the supportive framework they need to learn well, explore widely, develop resilience, foster curiosity, and form lifelong connections.

Students joining us benefit from the uniquely developed Inspired Approach to Early Years education, which allows young learners to progress through the UK National Curriculum and IGCSEs, to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in a learning pathway unlike any other. Our course options ensure all students truly flourish and succeed in their chosen areas of interest. We have an unrivalled track-record of success, with students gaining admission to the world’s best universities and our examination results are outstanding across the board.

In a commitment to the continual progression of our innovative education model, King’s College School, Panama, is a school subscribed to High-Performance Learning, a pedagogy that ensures teachers instil thinking skills and a growth mindset in our students as they access an inquiry-based learning environment. We support young people in cultivating an ambitious future that can help sculpt the 21st century.

An important part of the education at King's is how our students interact with their local community. We respect the Panamanian culture, values and heritage, and integrate them to further enhance our blend of British curriculum and International Baccalaureate. This is an approach adopted across many Inspired schools, and it is proven successful in creating a cohort of globally-minded, well-rounded and informed citizens of the world that truly flourish in their chosen fields.

We hope that by looking at our website, you will take the opportunity to visit our school and see the wonderful opportunities we provide in the energetic learning community that we have built. I look forward to welcoming your children to the new, state-of-the-art school campus here in Panama
