LIFE is under the legal covering of the Association of Christian Schools in Spain (CSS). The school is governed by a Policy-Governance School Board.

LIFE International School was founded with accreditation standards in mind and we are pursuing accreditation with Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA).  LIFE is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), and ACSI has over 24,000 member schools worldwide.

We are an English language immersion school. Classes are taught in English and students are provided the language support they need to be successful in content areas.  Starting in first grade, Spanish language and culture will be taught as a part of the curriculum.

Yes.  LIFE International School was established as a Foreign School in Spain.  As such, LIFE is recognized by the Comunidad de Madrid and the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science (MEC).  Therefore, all transcripts and school records from LIFE can be validated under Spanish law.

In the early stages of child development, our philosophy is that children do not need more exposure to technology than they are receiving at home. Therefore, technology will be introduced when the students begin in elementary school.

Short term:  We are currently located in Sector Foresta, 23 in Tres Cantos, a quiet residential neighborhood, easily accessible to families.

Long Term:  Our goal is to obtain land in the “Nueva Fase” of Tres Cantos and build a purpose-built school facility.

We believe that all forms of education and all educators have a particular perspective or worldview.  It may not always be obvious or overtly stated, but it will shape how things are understood and how things are communicated.  Education is not neutral; information is always presented from a particular lens or perspective which either includes or excludes God.  Christian education includes God, therefore inviting students to see and understand the world through the perspective of God’s truth, the Bible.

No. LIFE is open to all children and families who value the educational model that we offer.  Neither parents nor students have to believe what we believe, but they must understand that LIFE is a Christian school and that Christian values and principles will be interwoven into communication and instruction.

Yes.  Parents are always welcome to observe your child’s busy classroom!  Parent participation and involvement is one of the primary keys to a successful education.  Also, we want parents to see and experience the culture of LIFE International School.  Parents may contact the school at any time to set an appointment.

We partner with parents to maximize what we can offer our students.  Parent volunteers play an important role in the life of the school.  If you would like to be involved, you are encouraged to discuss your interests and availability with the LIFE administration.
