Ever since its inception in 1971 the International School of Madrid has welcomed students of all different nationalities to learn English together, following the British curriculum. We are now a community of over 30 different nationalities, as represented by the flags seen above. As the founder of the school, Anne Mazón, wrote at the time: Our goal is to prepare our children to become worthy citizens of whatever country they may live in when they grow up. We are educating them – children of different races, creeds, colours and tongues – to live together in peace and harmony, appreciating and understanding each other’s different backgrounds and cultures. Our theme is not “I teach, you learn.” No! We prefer “We are all here together to learn from each other”.
