Located beside a golf course in the leafy 3rd District of Budapest, a short distance from the Danube and the city centre, our school campus is modern and well-resourced. Primary students benefit from one-to-one iPads and secondary students bring their own laptops. Specialist rooms are equipped with first class facilities, enabling our students to take advantage of our collaborations with MIT and The Juilliard School New York. Three major development projects in three years have added additional specialist facilities for science, bringing our total to five state of the art laboratories, computing, visual art, the performing arts and sports.  Our multicultural students are motivated and enthusiastic, enjoying a lively approach to learning, and they are committed to active service and leadership in and beyond school. We are proud of our strong and supportive community, founded on elements of our mission statement and developed through shared values, consistently enacted by students, parents and staff. As we look towards 2021 and beyond, we seek enthusiastic and committed colleagues to help us live our vision of “empowered students in a sustainable school.”
