This school is nothing short of disappointing. They fire and hire people on a continual basis. They sell a product which they do not deliver. In the past few years, they have fired unbelievably valuable staff and if you don’t get along with certain people in the administration then you go on the chopping block. There have been very good teachers in the past few years; however, most of them have been fired. The word needs to get out about this school. Abusive tactics in treatment of their employees, misinformation about contracts, poor management, no library, and no school nurse. If you look at the website, although they do have native speakers, there is only ONE American. Check out other options in Barcelona. (By the way, this school is in a town outside of Barcelona and it takes an hour to get to from Barcelona.) Also the student base is mostly Catalan or Spanish. An actual American school has American values, an American culture, American students and administration that has experience abroad. This school is a not authentic at all.

1. The school is an hour outside of Barcelona- don't be fooled. 2. They sell former teachers' personal email addresses- I stopped working there and all of a sudden got all these weird recruitment emails from other schools even though after working at GRESOL I will never, ever teach again.

NO BACKGROUND CHECKS ON TEACHERS!!!! CHILD MOLESTORS AND PEOPLE WHO HAVE HIT STUDENTS HAVE BEEN EMPLOYED HERE IN THE PAST 2 YEARS!!!!! i am writing to confirm what others have said. the school has a very high turnover and teachers are fired because the woman in charge of the school hates speaking english and hates americans especially which would be ironic if it wasnt so stupid because she works at an american school. they lied to the IB committee like someone said because i saw it happen and i asked and was told to mind my own business. recently they fired the primary school director simply because she cared about academics more than she cared about photo opportunities. i have worked in 25 schools in 15 years of teaching, some in very poor countries with bad conditions, and this is the worst-run school i have ever seen!

Abusive administration. Over 20 teachers fired in 1 year. School lies about being accredited, and even lies about being an American school, because they hate Americans and fired almost all of them! They also lied to the IB selection committee by setting up a FAKE NURSE'S OFFICE and a FAKE LIBRARY! most teachers have little to no formal training, as politics gets you much father than being a good teacher at this corporate-run "school." An astonishing waste of money for families, given the sparse and decrepit facilities and the food so disgusting that it makes children cry. Avoid working here or sending your children here at all costs!

Yo la he llevado este año, de momento muy contenta con el proyecto y con la profesora. Tenía buenas referencias de otros alumnos y además había leído mas opiniones en otras webs (buscocolegio). Decir que el proyecto ha cambiado hace un par de años por lo que puede haber opiniones negativas de antes del cambio. Estoy teniendo muy buena impresión, calidad en la educación, cercanía. Inmersión lingüistica en inglés, aprenden música como en conservatorio, segundo idioma alemán..etc.. Por ahora todo positivo.

Para nuestra familia es muy importante que el niño aprenda inglés como un idioma nativo. Por esta razón, hemos buscado colegios internacionales y por precio e instalaciones nos hemos decantado por Gresol. El niño va en infantil y cuando ha empezado hablaba español y poco catalán. Puedo decir que ya se nota la diferencia – mí hijo me pide jugar y hablar en inglés. Las profesoras son muy amables y el niño va al cole con muchas ganas. Hay variedad de actividades y también hace piscina.

Vaig portar a la nena el curs 2016-2017.Se suposa inmersio inglesa, la meva nena només parlava inglés i ha apres castella. Molt mala comunicació amb els pares, avisat a l'últim moment i a vegades ni ells entenen els mails que envíen, en un correcte catala. També he tingut problemes amb els canvis d'horaris del autobús, o sigui que no m'han notificat els canvi. El festival va i els fan cantar una canco en catala, no en angles. A la meva nena l'han pegada altres nens, li han trencat pulseres, ,... I encara que ho vaig dir, ningú va fer res Pagant gairabé 900e al més es d'esperar molt més. Si pogues els hi posaria un 0. Per sort ara la meva peque ha tornat a inglaterra a una escola pública, a on tot funciona molt millor.
