The construction of GSD International School Educational Center in Ciudad Hacienda Los Reyes has begun.

Already, we have begun the exciting work of creating the curriculum for our students, gathering ideas and strength. These efforts are just part of an even greater feeling, the thrill of being able to share a well-rounded, innovative and high quality education for all, working together.

Just a few minutes from the capital city of San José, near the Juan Santamaria International Airport.

The school is located in the Hacienda-Ciudad de los Reyes residential community, in La Guácima, Alajuela. An exceptional environment in which to enjoy learning, surrounded by nature and well-equipped with sporting and recreational facilities and private security.

GSD International School was born of our desire to offer a well-rounded educational experience where it is necessary to combine the overall preparation of individuals for their personal and professional future with a present that is an interchange of cultures, organizations and multicultural professionals, business-wise and socially, an authentic catalyst of universal values.

A model committed to “education through experiences without borders”, fostering exchanges and encounters between students from all over the world, thanks to the relationships GSD has with organizations like Global Connections.

Based on a belief in cooperation and teamwork that distinguishes our way of being and acting, the GSD educational model instills the same values in every student.

In this way, students improve their academic and social skills in entrepreneurship and professional development.

Our dream is to play an active part in the society in which our educational centers are located. To establish relationships of mutual support, cooperation and harmonious coexistence.

This was how GSD was created more than 30 years ago in Spain. And this is how we continue to operate today wherever we go. This project strengthens bonds of friendship between two countries which have been growing stronger over the years, through annual student exchanges and cooperation activities between institutions, organizations and cooperatives.

Thank you for welcoming us to your country and believing in us to continue to build the future together.
