MEET THE STARS OF
The Casco School / Student Life
Meet Mia Fernanda
The nomadic student whose parents couldn’t find a modern and high standard education in Panama…
With a firm determination, Mia Fernanda’s parents decided to look for a better education alternative for their daughter, a modern education where their daughter’s strengths were reinforced, an education where children are not measured as grades but as individual beings with the characteristics that make each human being different. The frustration (but at the same time the determination of Mia Fernanda’s parents) led them to even leave their daughter out of their first school for 7 months while finding a worthwhile education alternative, both in the academic system as in the economic.
After a long time looking and analyzing for a better and different alternatives, it was in this way that Mia Fernanda’s parents arrived at The Casco School, where their daughter is today an outstanding and happy student.
