Head of Art creates murals in Argentina/ Jefe de Arte crea murales en Argentina

En junio del presente año, Lucila González, Jefe del Departamento de Arte de Secundaria representó a nuestro país y a la ABC, en el Tercer Congreso y Encuentro Simultáneo de Arte Público de los Pueblos Libres, llevado a cabo en Argentina.
Inspirada por un congreso de murales similar a nivel local, Lucila decidió aplicar para representar a El Salvador en el encuentro argentino. En junio fue seleccionada, y una vez ahí no solo participó en la creación de dos murales, también formó parte del Congreso de Historia y Muralismo que sucedió al mismo tiempo. 

Importante es mencionar que estos encuentros estuvieron apoyados por importantes autoridades argentinas, tales como la Secretaría Nacional de Turismo,  el Ministro de Cultura, diputados nacionales, entre otros.

En el evento participaron muralistas e historiadores de Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico, Paraguay, Chile , El Salvador y Argentina.



Felicitamos a Lucila por su destacada participación en estos eventos, ya que estamos seguros que su experiencia le será de gran utilidad dentro del aula. Para ver mas acerca de este viaje, favor ver este video.










This past June, Lucila González, Head of the Secondary Art Department represented our country, along with the ABC, at the Tercer Congreso y Encuentro Simultáneo de Arte Público de los Pueblos Libres, which took place in Argentina.

Inspired by a similar local event, Lucila decided to apply to represent El Salvador in Argentina. She was notified of her selection in June, and once she arrived, she not only contributed to the creation of two murals, she also took part in the Congreso de Historia y Muralismo which happened simultaneously.
It is worth noting that these initiatives garnered the support of important Argentinian authorities, such as the National Secretary of Tourism, the Ministry of Culture, and congress members, among others.
The event hosted participants from Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico, Paraguay, Chile, El Salvador and Argentina.



We would like to congratulate Lucila for her participation, as we are sure that her experience will undoubtedly prove to enrich her lessons. To learn more about her trip, please watch this video.

New Parent Meetings/ Reuniones de Nuevos Padres

This week , we have had some meetings to welcome new parents to the ABC community and ease their transition into school.
Thursday morning, Primary parents met with Ms. Short, Ms. Corry and Mr. Hall to learn more about how the Primary section works and meet with the Madres Enlace for their grades.

That same evening, a small reception was hosted for new Secondary parents where they met with Ms. Catlin, Ms. Cáceres and Mr. Hall, along with Madres Enlace.

We hope that these meetings have helped our new parents get a taste of what life is like at the ABC. We want them to understand and be active members of our community and look, we look forward to seeing their faces around the campus.




Esta semana, hemos tenido algunas reuniones para darle la bienvenida a los nuevos padres de familia a nuestra comunidad y facilitar su transición al colegio.
El pasado jueves, los nuevos padres de Primaria se reunieron con Ms. Short, Ms. Corry y Mr. Hall para aprender como funciona la sección, y para conocer a sus respectivas Madres Enlace.

Esa misma tarde, se convocó a los nuevos padres de Secundaria, quienes platicaron con Ms. Catlin, Ms. Cáceres y Mr. Hall, junto a las Madres Enlace.

Esperamos que estas reuniones hayan ayudado a los nuevos padres a saber un poco más de la vida en la ABC, y esperamos seguirlos viendo alrededor del campus.

Congratulations to the ABC Classes of 2016 and 2018 for their excellent IGCSE and IB Results

We are very proud of the results achieved by our students in their international examinations where they are competing for grades with other international students from all over the world. The Class of 2016 achieved very pleasing results with almost 90% of the cohort passing the full IB Diploma and all students achieving level 4 or above in the majority of their subjects. Our average point score was 29 points and our top student was Irene Vega with 40 points. Many of these students are now at universities or about to leave and we wish them all the very best - we are already missing them!


Congratulations also to the Class of 2018 for their successes on the Cambridge IGCSE where all students took at least eight subjects. In terms of the number of A and A*, which are the very best grades available, we had our best results with almost 30% of our grades being at these levels. We are very proud of them and look forward to their further successes on the IB Diploma in two years time. Our top student was Daniela Duran who achieved the amazing result of nine A* and one A grade. A number of other students also achieved multiple A*passes. We are looking forward to seeing them all back in school next week.
