More than an educational establishment, St. George’s International School, Luxembourg ASBL, is a vibrant, inclusive and welcoming community comprising 720 students from over 52 countries. Within the school’s supportive framework, students aged three to 18 are given the necessary tools to reach their goals.
“Learning should be personalised according to individual needs, with students receiving the challenges and the support necessary to achieve their highest potential,” affirms the principal, Dr. Christian Barkei. As well as offering challenging academic opportunities, St. George’s prides itself on its caring approach, helping students grow into bright, self-assured and aspirational individuals.
St. George’s dedicated teachers create engaging learning opportunities, and maintain strong partnerships with parents. The school was recently rated “excellent” by the Independent Schools Inspectorate and has innovative, purpose-built facilities. Another benefit? “With our international A-level exams, the vast majority of our students can study at universities all over the world,” explains Dr. Barkei.
Extracurricular interests are important too: “We offer a wide range of activities to allow our students to develop specialised skills and participate in international conferences and competitions.” The school recently announced the opening of its new Zinnen building, with facilities including a 320-seater auditorium and state-of-the-art music recording suites. Situated between the Hamilius (primary) and Barthel (secondary) buildings, this new five-floor building makes a perfect centrepiece.
