A true measure of a school is not what its students are doing when they are 18: it is what have they have done when they are 80.
—Anita Sutton, School Director
So welcome to the passionate, engaging, and effervescent Summerhill International School. Please do stop reading if you’re looking for a one-dimensional exam factory, a by-the-numbers international school, or a quiet escape from the world.
There is no flag over our door. We are an unsectarian community of 16 nationalities, crackling and fizzing with life, with no time for the narrow education offered by those living in fear of pie charts, graphs and tables.
Our educators at Summerhill International School hail from a range of countries, which further enhances our international community and approach to learning. We draw from a range of experiences, curriculums, and educational philosophies, which encourage a range of learning experiences in our school. Our educators have taught in Japan, Australia, Singapore, China, Russia, Vietnam, the UK, the UAE, and Portugal, which informs our practice and approach to learning.
