Learning and growing at King’s College School Panama is a personalised experience. With a focus on maintaining a small, family-like atmosphere for our learners, many of whom are far from their home countries, we maintain an exceptionally healthy staff-to-student ratio across the school. This results in a tailored learning experience for each individual. At our school, students take centre stage in an active learner-centred environment. In addition to being instructed by world-class international teachers, each learner benefits from having their own dedicated tutor. This crucial element of tutorship, a cornerstone of the British education system, provides each student with an adult mentor to guide their academic, emotional, social, athletic, and artistic development. They also serve as the linchpin of communication between home and school, forming a collaborative team for the success of every learner.
King’s College School Panama is accredited as an "Outstanding" British School Overseas (BSO). It is also an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School and a Cambridge and Pearson (UK) examination Centre. This enables our secondary students not only to pursue the best academic programmes globally but also enhances their prospects for entry into the finest global universities. We are a High Performance Learning (HPL) accredited world school, and recently we achieved the prestigious “Wellbeing Award”. Ninety percent of our teaching staff are native English speakers, and the majority of them are British-trained educators with internationally recognized qualifications and experience. Our student population represents 47 different nationalities. When combined with our offerings of the IB Diploma, UK National Curriculum, Reggio Emilia approach to Early Years, and the IGCSE qualifications, our programme stands unparalleled in terms of internationalism in Panama City.
However, the most significant aspect of an international education is the appreciation and connection with the local environment. King’s College School Panama is located in the tropical Panamanian rainforest, just a short distance from Panama City and the City of Knowledge, where the United Nations and many leading global tech, research, and non-governmental organisations are based. Our school campus, surroundings, and curriculum are aligned to provide an innovative education centred around scientific research, exploration, and sustainability. We aim for your children to graduate King’s College School Panama, prepared to thrive as global citizens, poised to make positive contributions to the environmental challenges our world faces. What better setting to acquire these lifelong skills than in the natural beauty of Panama.
