Open Day

Private school from 3 years of age until post-secondary education

Personalized education, which respects each child’s individual development process and focuses on their families

Education that works!

Our educational programme has been shown to foster students’ self-regulation (soft) skills, performance and achievement.

In particular, it has been scientifically shown that 4 and 5 year old students enrolled in the 31 schools in Madrid trained by our research team on how to foster students’ self-regulation skills improved their performance in math, science and reading by 1,5-2,1 points (over ten) at the age of 6 years old. Additionally, students’ self-regulation skills improved by at least 10 per cent per academic year.

The educational project created by the research team of American School of Murcia improves students’ soft skills from the very young ages, helping children to manage their emotions, develop adequate social skills, ignore distractions and, thus, focus on a task, plan, postpone rewards, etc., while protecting students’ self-concept and cultivating a culture of effort.

That is why the OECD has recognized our educational project as one of the most relevant in order to stimulate these crucial skills in children.

The only school in the city of Murcia authorized to use the Singapore Math method

The American School of Murcia is the only school in the city of Murcia that uses the Singapore Math method. This method, which is consistent with our teaching principles, helps children to develop analytical and reflective thinking skills, facilitating meaningful learning in math as well as other subjects.

We work with children, adolescents and families to develop self-regulation skills, which improve self-confidence, motivation, performance, and ultimately, well-being over one’s lifetime.

The scientific evidence shows that learning to manage emotions, frustration, impulse control, postpone gratification, maintain sustained attention, solve real life problems, plan, as well as develop critical thinking, creativity, resilience, empathy, and the ability to work in teams – soft or self-regulating skills – are more important for a child’s future personal and occupational well-being than his or her IQ

Why the American School of Murcia?

We help prepare our students for real life, stimulating the development of key skills for personal and professional success using proven methodology.

Our Values

Our education focuses on integration in a diverse and global society based on respect for each child’s development process, hand in hand with their family, we stimulate the development of skills – soft or self-regulation skills – that are essential for their present and future well-being, all from a solid scientific basis.
Each child is unique. Each family is unique. Education in the 21st century must recognize this singularity and provide an educational offering tailored to the characteristics of each child and each family. In today’s world, quality education is personalized, respects the rhythm of each child’s development process without impeding or forcing others’ development, and incorporates families in the teaching-learning process to integrate habits and skills across all spheres of life. Quality education stimulates cognitive as well as emotional and social development, which represent the three pillars of human development.
We are committed to each child as an individual, not just as a student. We are committed to actively working with each family individually to contribute to their well-being and to integrate the skills and habits acquired in all areas of life. We are committed to respectful, experiential, and demanding education which, based on the recognition of the importance of integral human development (cognitive, emotional and social), allows us to provide our children with the skills and resources that will optimize personal and occupational well-being throughout their lives.
Our educational program has demonstrated scientifically that it improves, from a very young age, children’s self-regulation skills, self-concept, self-esteem, academic efforts and performance at the same time that it improves coexistence among all the members of the school community.
The creators of our educational program are the same researchers that created Educar para Ser, a research project which was identified by the OECD as one of the most relevant in the world with regards to stimulating these crucial skills in boys and girls.
