About Nord Anglia Education
Nord Anglia Education (NAE) is the world’s leading premium schools organisation, with campuses located across dozens of countries in the Americas, Europe, China, Southeast Asia, India and the Middle East. Together, our schools educate tens of thousands of students from kindergarten through to the end of secondary school. We are driven by one unifying philosophy: we are ambitious for our schools, students, teachers, staff and communities, and we inspire every child who attends an NAE school to achieve more than they ever imagined possible.
Every parent wants the best for their child — so do we. NAE schools deliver high quality, transformational education and ensure excellent academic outcomes by going beyond traditional learning. Our global scale enables us to recruit and retain world-leading teachers and to offer unforgettable experiences through global and regional events, while our engaging learning environments ensure all of our students love coming to school.
Founded in 1972 in the United Kingdom, the name Nord Anglia reflects the company’s beginnings in the north of England. NAE initially offered learning services such as English-as-a-foreign-language classes and grew during the 1980s by opening full-scale nurseries and kindergartens. In 1992, NAE opened its first international school, the British School of Warsaw. In the 2000s, the company began a strategic focus on premium international schools, with rapid growth in Asia, the Americas, China and across Europe and the Middle East. A truly international organisation, NAE now operates premium international schools worldwide. In July 2019, the company relocated its headquarters from Hong Kong to London, enabling even stronger growth in the future.
About your school
Colegio Menor Campus Samborondon
Some years after having created Universidad San Francisco de Quito with great success, our founders, Carlos Montúfar Freile, José Ribadeneira and Santiago Gangotena, felt the need to initiate a project with similar principles to those of the university.
With this dream in mind, and with immense support from many families who were certain of the future success of the project, Colegio Menor San Francisco de Quito opened its doors to the community in 1995 with the concept of an American style education for Ecuadorians, where students could gain access to a liberal arts-based bilingual curriculum.
Since that moment, over 24 years ago, Colegio Menor has worked to become an exemplary model for excellence in education in Ecuador.
In August, 2019, Colegio Menor joined the global Nord Anglia Education family of schools. Learn more about Nord Anglia at http://www.nordangliaeducation.com.
