OUR EDUCATION

INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL IN PANAMA

British School in Panama

The Casco School is one of the Best International Schools in Panama, offering an internationally and recognized British bilingual curriculum that encourages students’ academic, personal and social growth. While in other schools teachers and textbooks determine what students learn, at the Casco School we use the curriculum as a framework and work in small groups, with personalized learning, using our knowledge of each child to tailor lessons to their particular way of learning.

SEE WHAT THE HAPPY PARENTS SAY ABOUT THE CASCO SCHOOL...

The Casco School is an international school that offers a bilingual program. What really attracted me to The Casco School was the enthusiasm I saw and the smiles of the teachers! I’m so grateful to have a school that not only wants to be good but strives to be better every day!
Elena Di Marco

Lo que me encanta de The Casco School es el ambiente internacional. Mi hija tiene compañeros de básicamente todos los continentes. Pero al mismo tiempo hay una conexión fuerte con la comunidad y Panamá como país. Esta combinación del ambiente internacional y local a la vez, es una de las razones porque escogimos The Casco School para nuestra hija.
Sebastián Peña
Pre-nursery parent
Elegimos The Casco School porque es una colegio hecha con amor y modernos métodos de enseñanza donde cada niño puede aprender jugando.
María Paula Hoyos
Nursery parent
The Casco School has everything I was looking for in my daughter's education. an international, multicultural environment with small groups. Very professional, caring staff and high standards of education. The location in Casco Antiguo is a great plus where children coexist in a cultural and historical environment. Last but not least, the price is quite good for an international school, and no capital donation is required.
Julia Gronda
Year 3 parent
We were very excited when The Casco School opened in Casco Antiguo. The school was our first option due to the program, location, and team. We haven't seen a program quite like it anywhere else. Getting the whole student body moving every morning and having fun is exactly what is needed to stimulate the mind-body connection.
