St. Andrew's Scots School

'''St. Andrew's Scots School''' is a bilingual school in Buenos Aires, Argentina enrolling about 1900 students. All its students are expected to complete seven IGCSE exams (Cambridge University) in year 10 and receive an International Baccalaureate diploma in their last year at school.

Over the years the school became firmly inserted in the wider Argentine community and in order to teach English to children who did not speak the language at home, in 1963, a kindergarten in English was opened in Olivos. St. Andrews Scots School for Girls was opened in 1966 with the vision of preparing women to follow careers of their own choice. The school decided to return to co-education in 1980 and the boys and girls schools were fully integrated. That same year a second primary school and kindergarten were inaugurated in Punta Chica to make room for a growing student body.

In order to extend its long experience of striving for quality and innovation in teaching successive generations of students, in 1988 St. Andrews moved into the field of higher education and opened the Universidad de San Andres (University of St. Andrew's), with the purpose of bringing new ideas to that field in Argentina and offering a broad and challenging education to a diverse and talented student body. The private university was built in Victoria, Buenos Aires close to the Punta Chica primary school.
