For each and every member, Washington School is the perfect environment to build future; it is the field where those skills that prepare us for uncertain times are trained and developed. It is the perfect environment to learn about Peace and emotions, equations, Theory of Knowledge; to enjoy the taste for Literature and to feel the pure excitement towards experimental sciences. It is the place where we can use Spanish, English and Portuguese, not taking into account the Language we use but the choice of any of them with the conscience that languages are the tools to transmit concepts and great ideas. Washington School is a space in constant recreation. Come and get to know us all!School Philosophy International Programmes
When I graduated from Washington School I was granted a scholarship to study in the USA. I started at Idaho University and later I was transferred to UCLA, to participate in the Athletes’ Programme as a Rugby player. I could finish my studies in Sports Science at said University. Nowadays, I work at Leicester Tigers and in the English Rugby Union as trainer developer. At this time I am attending the Doctoral Programme in Sports Psychology. As regards Washington School´s legacy, it left me the possibility to step out of my comfort zone.
I got a PhD in Advertising in 2015 and I am nowadays working as an Account Executive in an advertising agency. The School was very important for me. How teachers treat you is really nice and the group of friends I still have from that time is incredible. What I do also highlight from School is its teaching of English. I am now in Japan and, although it is not its main language, I can communicate in English very well.
Washington School gave me friends, values, the foundation to my professional career and English, which was very important for me considering I’ve been living in Calgary, Canada, for the last seven years. I am an Industrial Engineer and I am working at Tenaris in the area of Supply Planning. My schooling at WS lasted from Kindergarten to the end of Secondary School and I remember those days with great affection.
I graduated in 2016 and thank to School I was granted a Sports Scholarship at Missouri University to attend the Sports Management course. I´ve been very happy throughout the 17 years I belonged to WS. I learnt a lot of English and sat for International Exams which helped me continue my studies in the USA.
After obtaining my Degree in Biochemistry, I arrived in Japan 15 years ago to attend a Doctoral Programme in Retrovirus. Now I have the opportunity to work at the University investigating virus, such as the HIV. Everybody I met at School, both teachers and peers, inspired me and gave me the tools to move onto my career as I did which, at first, was just a dream.
I remember with great affection the years I went to Washington School, where I forged values that are with me up to today, like commitment, vocation to help, solidarity and responsibility.
The human and academic training, that contributed to my own personal and professional growth based on the values transmitted and the support of the teachers, directors and psychopedagogical team, always attentive to our concerns, all of that honors the school motto, according to my vision. This year is my 25th graduation anniversary and I celebrate it with pride.
The school prepared me for any challenge, not only as a student, but also as a professional. I always felt I had the tools I needed to pursue my goals.
Besides the great academic level of this institution, Washington school makes the difference in the education in values. It’s given me a different way of looking at the world, from respect, diversity, awareness of the other and the notion that the foundation of an open mind lies in dialogue.
