Golden Valley School is an international, trilingual educational institution whose mission is to educate for life, developing better men and women. We offer an excellent academic program which encourages our students to be true to their ideals and become agents of change in an evolving world. We believe that every child has a special talent to develop and an innate ability to learn and acquire skills during his or her life. At Golden Valley School, teaching and learning are based on a process of continuous improvement through a comprehensive, holistic education, centered on God’s love, a culture of peace, and environment protection.
How do we achieve this?
To achieve this, we offer a unique environment where children can develop their talents to their maximum potential, starting from our internationally accredited Montessori Early Learning Center. Our students are offered opportunities for optimal growth, guided by experienced and highly prepared professionals.
Golden Valley educational programs follow the principles of the Montessori philosophy during the early years and until the age of six, when students are ready to enter Preparatory. From this level on, a journey begins towards primary, middle school and high school with excellent academic and human development and three languages: English, German, and Spanish.
All instruction is provided in a friendly atmosphere, surrounded by open areas. At the heart of Golden Valley are our outstanding teachers who love working with children and are highly trained in their areas.
