I agree with all the late reviews. There needs to be a drastic replacement of all headmasters, directors and decision making faculty/staff. If they had more professionally prepared faculty/staff with top quality international experience the school could be headed in the right direction. However, it would be a process until they can revert the bad situation they are in and call themselves a top school. Stop investing in infrastructure!! They are about to reform kindergarten and it will have absolutely NO impact in the education, likewise with the new parking lots. Invest in education!!!! Bring an experienced English native headmaster and high school director! Students English is sadly very poor. Their thick accent comes from their teachers. Give students the opportunity to have native speakers that they can mirror. Sometimes it is even hard to comprehend what they are even saying. Outrageous. Community is exhausted of unresponsiveness from the school. There’s a lot that can be done. No parents association!!! Begging the board to get their hands dirty and research what is really happening with the school. Stop looking at it as a business, focus on education!!!

Poor academics. Math department is very poor. Limited content and all students are weak in this area. If they seek a college degree that requires math they'll have to hire a private tutor in order to prepare for college. Teachers come and go. The compensation package must be bad if not they would stay. They've had 4 high school principles in about 5 years which seriously affects the academics and community. Their faculty and staff is so big that they lack communication within the school and with the parents. Parents will communicate with one person within the school about a concern/questions and they are never addressed. The headmaster of the entire school agreed to get back to me with some basic information and she never did. Same applies to psychologists, preceptores, tutors, etc. No teacher or staff is in charge of a student as a whole (academics, socially, family issues, etc). If a kid has a problem with multiple teachers (misbehaves or poor grades) nobody even notices because they don't communicate within. You will not known until it is too late. When there is a problem they hire more people. Example, students misbehave and they hire a preceptor. No faculty retention and they hire someone to specifically to work on that. There is too much bullying and thy hire more psychologists. It might seem a good idea but it just adds more staff which means less communication between them and instead of finding the root cause of a problem to prevent it, they hire staff to turn off the fires. There is NO common sense at all. They should fire all the preceptores, tutors, advisors and all psychologists but 1 or 2 and hire full-time faculty.

We recently had high school parent - teacher conferences after school hours. Parents were invited to attend a week in advance with 2 different time slots available. The same day of the conferences around noon the school sent a communication announcing that 14 teachers would not attend. Parents who arrived for the 5 o’clock slot, had to wait outside the school doors by the stairs and were not allowed to walk into the indoor patio. The doors were opened 10 minutes late and by the time parents walked to the appropriate building the conferences already started 15 minutes late. The school never apologized for the inconvenience. Parents rearranged their work schedules and family schedules to attend, they arrived on time and the school was not only delayed but several teachers were not even there. This is a perfect example of how disorganized the school is, the lack of teacher commitment, the disrespect towards the families and it works the same way the Argentinean government does. The campus is nice. They invested their money first in facilities and then forgot to invest in education itself.

Poor academics. Huge problem with recruiting and keeping their staff (my kid had no teacher for 9 months now in a subject., and at least 2 other subjects the teachers left with no subs). The school has never provided answers to our problems/questions/concerns. Always empty words. Nordelta site is very convenient if you live in Nordelta, but that’s it. DO NOT SEND your kids to this school. They can’t even control the bullying. I have a teaching background and I can certainly tell you that the school is very poor. I currently have 3 kids at the school.

My kid had 3 teachers in 6 months. They have a huge problem recruiting and keeping their teachers. Academically is very poor as well. It has an excellent reputation but once you are in you learn how bad it really is. Do not recommend at all!
