Unidad Educativa Particular Isaac Newton

Bronze Leading Organisation for Excellence in the Education sector
Cambridge Evaluations Start

In 2004, the first evaluations for the KET and FCE certifications from Cambridge University were applied. This represented a turning point for the future of the English language learning process in our school.

 
EFQM Path starts

In 2005, our organization began the process for the first self-evaluation for the EFQM Excellence Model. For the first time, twenty five people received assessment on the model. In 2006, we received the access level.

 
The Teaching Values Department

Learning concepts and skills is part of educating human beings, but teaching and learning values are far more important aspects. Thus, in 2004 the Teaching Values Department was created within the school in order to foster the values and background knowledge our students learn at their homes.

 
Recognized for Excellence 3 star

Our organization kept growing toward the path of doing things right. Therefore, in 2013 we were awarded the 3-star certificate for Excellence in the EFQM model. This achievement pushed us to become even better in the future.

 
Becoming and IB School

Having been pursuing a new challenge, we decided to offer a high quality program of education and become an IB World School. As a result, in 2016 we were authorized to offer the Diploma Programme.

 
Recognized for Excellence 4 star

Our route toward excellence is now in the right direction. In 2017, Isaac Newton High School is recognized with 4 stars for Excellence! We are very happy to have reached this level, which sets a new standard in our organization.
