Since 1999, ES American School has been offering an outstanding global education for all of our international students.  Our constant endeavor is to empower students to be lifelong learners and to excel as challenging, critical thinkers in a culturally diverse, ever-changing society, through a commitment to total quality, ethics, encouragement of risk-taking, and celebration of success. 

With locations in Barcelona, Spain and Naples, Florida, USA, our schools offer an independent, coeducational, American
Elementary, Middle and High School program for students from the American first through twelfth grades. Our school follows the educational guidelines and standards of the Department of Education in the State of Florida, United States, but also benefits from the myriad of cultures which populate our school and bring a global perspective to how we design and instruct our curriculum.   

All of our students receive
individual attention, close academic guidance and personal counseling, in order to ensure both the acquisition of academic competencies and the development of individual strengths and talents. 

In today’s world, learning through
multiculturalism is not just another way to learn, it is “the” way to learn. Our campus is nothing less than diverse, with students representing 41 countries and speaking over 28 different languages.  Our faculty mirrors the cultural diversity of our students and together, working as one team, the faculty and students engage in a voyage of discovery that truly prepares our students for the challenges of the 21st century.
