School description

Since 1999, ES International School has been offering an outstanding global education for all of our international students.  Our constant endeavor is to empower students to be lifelong learners and to excel as challenging, critical thinkers in a culturally diverse, ever-changing society, through a commitment to total quality, ethics, encouragement of risk-taking, and celebration of success. 

With locations in Barcelona, Spain and Naples, Florida, USA, our schools offer an independent, coeducational, American Elementary, Junior and Senior High School program for students from the American third through twelfth grades. Our school follows the educational guidelines and standards of the Department of Education in the State of Florida, United States, but also benefits from the myriad of cultures which populate our school and bring a global perspective to how we design and instruct our curriculum.   

All of our students receive individual attention, close academic guidance and personal counseling, in order to ensure both the acquisition of academic competencies and the development of individual strengths and talents. 

In today’s world, learning through multiculturalism is not just another way to learn, it is “the” way to learn. Our campus is nothing less than diverse, with students representing 41 countries and speaking over 28 different languages.  Our faculty mirrors the cultural diversity of our students and together, working as one team, the faculty and students engage in a voyage of discovery that truly prepares our students for the challenges of the 21st century.

Further information

ES International School constantly seeks to provide our students with academic and career opportunities beyond the years that they study with us. Nowhere is this more evident than the emphasis and guidance we place on the university placement process. As a college preparatory school, the future success of our students is of paramount importance, yet we also know that this success does not happen instantly. Therefore, preparing our students for the demands of university-level studies requires us to develop a rigorous academic environment, make their studies real-world relevant, and support and guide students in their chosen academic and career paths. In addition to a rigorous curriculum, our school offers comprehensive SAT Preparation Courses for our enrolled students and also serves as an official SAT Test Center.  Many factors, such as major area of study, high school grades, SAT and TOEFL results, scholarships, personal finances, and athletic ability can determine where a student may attend university.
