Atlas American School of Malaga will be the first school with an American curriculum located on the Costa del Sol, offering all levels of education from 3 to 18 years old.
The school is committed to promoting superior academic achievement, mastery of skills and content, and fostering moral citizenship. As part of its mission, one of the school’s goals is to prepare students for access to colleges and universities around the world, through their strong academic and personal skills.
Atlas-ASM will favor integral teaching. A training that combines the acquisition of curricular content, the development of personal skills of inquiry, reflection and communication, and the development of a personality endowed with a critical spirit, an international mentality and a vocation leadership and community service.
To this end, the school will be staffed with a team of renowned American teachers with extensive international experience, who deliver a curriculum focused on the development of humanities through sports, arts, drama and music.
Located in the Selwo area, a privileged area of Estepona, Atlas American School meets the demand for international schools on the Costa del Sol, allowing access to university in Spain and abroad. Atlas American School students will earn an American High School Diploma, equivalent to the Spanish Bachillerato, as it also offers specific preparation for the official Spanish curriculum (language and social studies).
Additionally, beginning with the 2022-23 academic year, Atlas American School of Malaga will seek permission to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma program. It will also distinguish itself by the offer of innovative programs, such as an intensive French program from the 5th year; an entrepreneurship program for students aged 14 to 17; and high-level sports programs in golf, tennis and paddle tennis. All of this will be integrated into the school’s timetable to guarantee excellence in the training of its students.
Atlas-ASM has an advisory and support service for the election of universities and their admissions process and will also offer an annual SAT preparation course for students planning to study at a university in the United States. .
As far as facilities are concerned, the educational complex will occupy an area of 22,498 square meters and will house two separate buildings, one for the school itself, and the other as a student residence with a boarding school which will start in September 2023. It will also have a gymnasium, two basketball courts and a soccer field.
Atlas-ASM is part of Mathema Education Group, a group founded in 2012 which currently manages two other schools: Aquinas American School with three campuses in Madrid and a student residence, and The British School of Navarra, in Pamplona.
