"When my husband and I moved to Guayaquil, one of our biggest concerns was finding a school that would provide our children with a top-notch education and a strong sense of community. Over the past five years, we have been blown away by how InterAmerican Academy has supported our children's academic growth while at the same time providing fostering their social development.
InterAmerican Academy has helped my children grow into confident and curious learners who want to make a difference in this world. The curriculum they've been exposed to is not only challenging but encourages critical thinking and hands-on learning.
We are especially grateful that IAA offers a gifted program for our son, where he is able to learn about his own metacognition and challenge himself by taking accelerated courses.
AA has the ability to offer individualized education that we haven't seen anywhere else in the world. Additionally, we have taken part in the plethora of after-school activities that IAA offers, including Destination Imagination. We've also had the pleasure of participating in events like International Day & Thanksgiving that bring together different cultures from around the world.
Our family is truly proud to be a part of the Shark community!"
