We are delighted that once again the School has been recognised as one of the best in the country, this time for the number of students that sat the ‘Pruebas Saber’ exams and their outstanding performance overall.
On the 15th December, the magazine Dinero published a special edition featuring the best schools. The ranking of institutions focused on the ‘Pruebas Saber’ exams for 11th Grade and highlighted the work done by those schools that obtained outstanding results with groups of over 55 students. The results of the exams were analysed and the number of students for each school was estimated from their results. The top 50 schools were then narrowed down to those from which the most students graduated. Saint George’s School emerged in fifth place with 77 students undertaking the Pruebas Saber.
In the interview conducted by the magazine with our headmaster, Jaime Acosta Allen, he was asked what was the key to academic success. His answer was that it was based on the rigour of developing a work ethic through which, from an early age, students learn how to manage their time. Likewise, they develop what is necessary to always give the best of themselves in each area. In his opinion: “Everyone has to learn to work in a demanding environment and as part of a team”.
The publication also highlighted the importance to the school of caring for the environment, as can be seen not only in the existence of its own forest reserve, but also in the presence of 54 species of birds and other animals common to the wetlands of the lake within its grounds.
As a result, Saint George’s School has been endorsed by the magazine Dinero as one of the best schools in the country.
