About us

Miss Anne Aronson founded The European School in 1989 and continues to run it today. The school emphasizes the Liberal Arts and Humanities, and while holding academic excellence as its standard, it allows its students freedom and opportunity to achieve quality learning in an individualized way – with mature, morally attuned, self-confident graduates as a result.

To develop life-long learners through an educational program based on literature, which recognizes each student as a whole being, with different virtues, limitations, needs and abilities.
