Dragon American School consists of a group of professionals with experience and expertise in the most innovative and leading pedagogical trends.
Our team is made up of around 50% of teachers who have English as their first language (USA, CANADA, UK, IRLANDA) whilst the other 50% are from other nationalities (SPAIN, ARGENTINA, CHILE, ESPAÑA, RUSIA, CHIPRE, VENEZUELA and FILIPINAS), many of who have worked as teachers in the USA and most of them have a very high level of English.
All the staff in Dragon American School are fully involved in the development of our students. The multidisciplinary and eclectic nature of our team promotes individual learning and we achieve this through incomparably diverse approaches.
Our team is dedicated to education. Trained in new innovative methods of education whilst understanding more traditional procedures our teachers keep up to date with all new developments, researches or recent publications throughout the world. This way, they are continually adapting their teaching methods thus guaranteeing a future for our students.
Based on a Tech Start-Up corporate cultural model, where there is no rigid hierarchy, teachers work as a team creating a better school climate. Collaboration between both levels -Elementary and Secondary – allows achieving our tailor-made academic programme.
Kindergarten teachers receive specialized training in our school throughout school years, specifically focused on the different methods used in democratic schools (Reggio, Montessori, Waldorf, Positive Discipline, Aucouturier, Pikler-Loczy). Our school also provides continuous and specific training to Elementary and Secondary teachers. They receive training on different methodologies with a multidisciplinary approach linked to each major area (IGCSE, Multiple Intelligence, High Abilities, Learning Disabilities and many more…).
Our aim is to gather a team of people with great attributes and principles. The skills and qualities that we look for in the process of staff selection are the following:
• Professionalism and Responsability
• Dynamism and Energy
• Autonomy and Iniciative
We believe that workplace satisfaction is the key to success. For this reason, we encourage self-awareness and self-care activities in order to lead a healthy lifestyle (meditation, yoga, personal development workshops, nutrition, healthy habits, etc.).
Dragon American School is continuously interviewing new teachers throughout the school year as we are constantly looking out for the best teachers to join our supply pool.
(…) 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. (…)
(…) 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.(…)
