12 years growing tomorrow´s inspiring people

History

It all began when Bárbara Serrano and Juan Morán, both from different professional backgrounds - education and business - found each other trying to figure out how the Spanish educational system could guarantee a future with the right opportunities for their children. They both felt responsible for providing sound education for them

 

INNOVATING IN EDUCATION

Since we first opened in 2012, the school has grown from a small kindergarten and primary school into a larger school that holds students all the way up to high school. We changed its name to El Dragón International School and in 2019 we were granted as a Cambridge International Centre. 2020 has brought us to our new site where we have also included High School and we are now called Dragon American School, the American School of Torrelodones.

We are accredited by the NEASC-CIS, a New England Association of Schools and Colleges and the Council of International Schools – two independent organizations known for connecting high standard schools worldwide.

Our American, British and Spanish Certificates enable our students to access the best universities in the world.

We are an organic school, not just because of our philosophy but also because we are constantly growing and adapting to the changes around us. Education needs to change to keep up with a fast-moving world. Whilst days gone by sitting and waiting may have been enough, nowadays, we need to take action and make some changes

JOINING FORCES

Their paths crossed whilst attending the same meeting and they both realized that not only they had the same concern about their children´s future, but they could actually create an educational project that would meet their needs if they both contributed with their expertise. This is how Dragon American School was

They both aimed for an efficient education that could led their children to face challenges in the future. An type of education that could help them achieve their full potential, respect their desire to learn and develop without any barriers. An education that will provide them with options and the freedom to decide for themselves about their futures. But specially, an educational system that would made children go happy to school.

Straight away they started working on it. They were determined to have a pedagogical model based on democratic schools. Bárbara carried out an extensive study on this successful methodology – which has been proven successful- that started in the Twenties, in Israel, USA and other countries with more developed educational systems. Juan, on the other hand, as a businessman and successful start-up entrepreneur added the key strategic value to strengthen the tailor-made pedagogical system that today is the Dragon American School that we know.

 

What they say about us

Ágata, madre de dos

(…) Para mí el colegio el Dragón es lo mejor que hay por lo menos en Madrid. En el Dragón no hay casi bullying, y si lo hay lo paran de raíz con un protocolo que ha de seguir llamado protocolo firewall, así, no hay casos de bullying (aunque si seguís al colegio desde hace ya tiempo quizás lo conozcáis). Los compas son todos o la mayoría muy buena tente, ellos siempre tratan bien a la gente y te acoplarás muy bien. (…)

Shayra, madre de dos

(…) La experiencia de nuestra familia en el Dragón ha sido muy gratificante. Nuestro hijo de 7 años va al colegio contento cada mañana. Sin duda hemos tomado la decisión más acertada para su eduación.(…)
