Accreditation Experience

Written by Carlos Prats Redondo. Posted in News

MSA logoTwo of our teachers, Daniela Zúñiga and Diana Carles, have been abroad this past week in Paris and Madrid, respectively, to participate as team members in the reaccredidation of  Marymount International School (Paris) and the accreditation of Aquinas American School (Madrid). 

Daniela Zúñiga has participated in representation of a Middle States Association team (MSA) in collaboration with team members from the Council of International Schools (CIS), both of which organizations have recommended Marymount International School for accreditation; Diana Carles has participated in representation of a Middle States Association team (MSA) in a follow-up visit from October that has enabled Aquinas American School to be recommended for accreditation.  

It has been a successful and fruitful venture for both parties. We extend our congratulations to these schools as well as to our teachers for their hard work.

School Science Laboratory

Written by Carlos Prats Redondo. Posted in News

Over the last few years we have been developing our School Science Laboratory to provide practical experience and demonstrations of some of the chemistry, physics and biology topics that form the Science curriculum.

With the premise that a picture is worth a thousand words, seeing or carrying out a demonstration can be more informative that just hearing about it.

With the generosity of a number of people and organisations, we are gradually accumulating a wide variety of apparatus, equipment and chemicals.

AmoebaOn of the pieces of equipment recently provided is a digital microscope that plugs into a computer, allowing us to view an objet or slide at up to 200 x magnification directly on a computer monitor screen. This means that the whole class can view the item at once rather that queuing to look down a conventional microscope. We can also capture the picture and save it for viewing at another time. This way we are building a library of images, an example is this picture of Amoeba.
