Eduardo holds a master’s degree in international business law from Queen Mary University of London. He led a successful law firm for over a decade. He gained experience in education by working as a college professor and volunteering in an NGO that taught democratic values to small children.

María has a degree in communications and a master’s in media management. She traveled across five continents as a travel writer until becoming a mother when she decided that there was no better place in the world she’d rather be than beside her family. Since then, she has worked as a freelance journalist, often writing about topics related to parenthood and children’s health.

Now they both want to deliver the highest standards of education in a safe, happy and nurturing environment, building the best school for their kids and yours. They encourage you to drop by and take a look for yourself.
