Message from the head of Senior School, Williams Amaya
Dear St. George’s Family:
Education is the result of projects interactions that help develop personal identity: family project, educational project and personal project, which we hope that each student in our community will develop for their lives, as the result of the first two.
At St. George’s College we continue to seek to train good people by strengthening projects that allow it, being aware that the way to make it happen can take different ways of attention to characteristics of the protagonists, our students.

Head of Lower School Message
Dear St. George’s Family:
Hoping that everyone is in good health, I would like to tell you that the education we have in front of us, virtually or in person, must continue. Thanks to the efforts and resilience of the entire St. George’s community, we are demonstrating that education is a right and not a privilege. It is our responsibility during this period that we have to live together, to develop in our students the soft skills they need to adapt to and face the world after the pandemic.
I invite you to listen the following message.
Mrs. Lucy Castañon
Head of Lower School
Message from the Headmaster, Dr. Graham Gisby
More than two months in isolation have passed where I have reflected on many things that I miss right now and that I once took for granted, such as being part of assemblies, receiving parents to talk about different topics, and hear the effervescent laughter of children and teenagers.
We find ourselves on times of crisis where many of you can feel the pressure brought on by events and forces that are not the fault of any of us. The vision we wish to share is of the school where which we are sure you would like to return in 2021. St George’s is a strong and vibrant school, with clear leadership, with secure international influence and interactions, world class curricula, admirable and concrete infrastructure plans, advanced technology and wonderful resources.
Dear parents, I invite you to watch the following video.
We will keep in touch
Dr. Graham Gisby
Message from the Head of Early Years, Ursula Alarco
Dear St. George’s Family:
The most important reason for our work is children; where day by day we take care of the emotional part and we are advancing in the curricular programs that are based on necessary competencies for their ages and not only on content to be fulfilled. Our children need to develop different skills such as: social skills, communication, self-control, technology, inquiry, among others. It is difficult, but we cannot allow our children to miss the opportunity during this year to continue to have cognitive, physical, neurological, social and emotional support stimulation. Therefore learning must continue and by working as a team we can achieve it.
I invite you to watch this video.
We will keep in touch and we are attentive to any concerns you wish to express.
An affectionate hug,
Head of Early Year
