Dear families,

It is a pleasure for me to offer you a warm welcome to Fontenebro International School – a bilingual school with a real international flavour and one where each and every student is encouraged to reach their potential, guided in their learning journeys by our wonderful team of dedicated staff.

At Fontenebro International  School we place all our focus on learning, in other words  ‘getting better’. We strive for our students to improve academically, of course,  but also in terms of personal and emotional development, too.

Our belief is that it is our responsibility to prepare our students for their future and equip them with the knowledge and skills that they will need to be respectful global citizens and to help meet the challenges of an ever-changing world.   Our education project is designed to help our students be excellent communicators, creative and critical thinkers, team players, problem-solvers and to be caring and empathetic individuals.

Importantly, we want our students to embrace learning and become life-long learners. At Fontenebro International School learning is something that can be fun, exciting and always challenging. It’s a place where AMAZING LEARNING  happens, where students can astound themselves with their own capabilities.

We really look forward to welcoming you to our school in person where you can see the learning and the joy of learning for yourselves.

Welcome to Fontenebro School

Founded in 1996, Fontenebro International School offers a comprehensive education that is second to none.   We educate children to be capable of determining the course of their own future.

We are part of the country’s largest group of international private schools and are part of the International School Partnership, which currently has schools in the Middle East, United States, Mexico, Malaysia, Costa Rica, England and Spain.



FONTENEBRO SCHOOL offers a comprehensive and personalised educational project for each and every one of our pupils, in accordance with the qualities, aptitudes and values that they will need in the future. We focus our attention on learning and to this end we carry out more than 250 classroom observations a year to check and improve the learning process of our pupils.

Our students learn in a welcoming, pleasant and comfortable environment, in a setting and with teachers who care about their emotional well-being as the basis for their learning.

We are part of the international group ISP (International School Partnership), which currently has more than 50 schools in the Middle East, the United States, Mexico, Malaysia, Costa Rica, England and Europe, among others.

Our aim is learning, understood as the process of constantly improving our knowledge, skills and understanding. For learning to take place, it is necessary that a series of repeated experiences take place through which we activate the brain and establish the necessary connections. This phenomenon occurs through what we call good struggle, a term that reflects how the learner learns by stepping out of their comfort zone and overcoming manageable difficulties appropriate to their level. We assume as a reality in our classrooms that each student learns in different ways and at different times.

Our commitment is to the integral formation of the pupil, working not only on the acquisition of knowledge, but also on the development of skills, talents, abilities and, at the same time, promoting education in universal values.

We develop social and communication skills, we contribute to the development of solvent students, complete people, capable of continuing to learn throughout their lives, curious, cultured, educated and responsible. We train people capable of managing their present and directing their own future.
