It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to SEK International School Atlántico. Over three decades the tireless effort and, above all, the enthusiasm and hard work of our entire educational community have allowed us to proudly say that we are one of the best international schools in Spain and the only one in Galicia that is authorised to teach the three International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes, making us a leading school following the success obtained in recent years in the Diploma Programme. Over the last two years, two students achieved 45 points, the highest mark possible, and the graduating class achieved an average mark of 35 points, which means we remain in the top positions of the IB school ranking in Spain and Europe.
Furthermore, we achieved outstanding results in the Spanish Bachillerato, with five students among the best in Galicia and one of them Extraordinary Bachillerato Prize.
We start this new school year with great enthusiasm, maintaining and improving our commitment to quality education. We will base our work on flexibility, responsibility, teamwork and collaborative learning, with a unique educational model that is committed to internationality, bilingualism, STEAM subjects, training in 21st century skills, technology and individualised education, without forgetting the emotional well-being of all members of our educational community.
All this is possible thanks to a team of teachers and administrative staff that of are totally dedicated to the true protagonists of the educational process, the students.
We are grateful for the trust our students and their families have placed in us and we are at your disposal, with the support of the school’s teaching team, to ensure the full academic and personal development of your children. To those families who are not yet part of our marvellous community, I encourage you to get in touch with us and discover a unique and different education model.
We embark on a school year that holds more challenges than ever with the greatest enthusiasm to design unforgettable learning experiences.
