About English Academy Santa Claus

English Academy Santa Claus is a private family school, with a basis of personalised education. It offers a superior quality of teaching and individualised attention. At English Academy Santa Claus, we follow the evolution of each student personally, keeping track of both their personal and academic development.

Over the last 50 years, we have adapted to new social, environmental and technological challenges, in a calm and meditated way. We have done this from all perspectives, academic, social, cognitive and emotional. We are constantly incorporating new methodologies, with new pedagogical tools and academic programmes. Based on the Montessori philosophy English Academy Santa Claus has always maintained a focus on teaching as being practical, active and experimental but without abandoning its theoretical base, academic rigour and the consolidation of learning.

Very disappointed with this school. They don’t care about the kids. Teachers changed constantly. The director Arola has no idea about manners. I took my daughter out of this school and now she is much happier

Great English Academy in beautiful safe surroundings. I have had all of my 4 children in this familiar school and their level of English is now excellent. Santa Claus has a 0 tolerance for bullying something I found very important since it is a big problem nowadays, they also had an animal welfare workshop on the schedule. I loved that! The school is trilingual and all classes meet a very high standard. It was easy to communicate with teathers and direction when we had a problem. My kids also loved the food there.

While living in Barcelona for a year we had the opportunity to send our daughter to EASC. With it's old world charm and close knit feeling having come from NY we wanted our daughter to have the experience of a bilingual education as well as immersing her in the local culture and EASC met all of our hopes and exceeded our expectations. The academic standards at EASC have given my daughter an advantage since returning to the US school system. A well balanced program that encompasses the social, emotional and academic well being of all the children. The directors guidance and insights into my daughters assimilation during the process were spot on and much appreciated as we navigated the transition. I would absolutely recommend EASC!

The only good thing about the school were the teachers but the best of them left too. The most anti international pro Catalan too small, terrible management that actually abused the children. Discipline is a good thing but the management took it to ridiculous lengths. Be warned!!! As far as zero bullying that is an absolute joke. We experienced it. So many other parents and precious teachers had terrible experiences. I speak on their behalf. Thank goodness we left!!!

The English teachers try their best,however management is very disorganised,not child centered and a poor place to educatate your child. Major changes are needed for the improvement of the school. All in all, this school is unsafe for children.
