60 Nations \ 4 Campuses \ 1 Global School
Diversity amplifies learning. With students from over 60 nations, there is no school on the planet as diverse as EF International Academy. Learning alongside world-class peers from around the globe, our students encounter new cultures, perspectives, and beliefs in every single classroom exchange. Diversity enables students to think critically about the world and their place in it, encouraging them to become self-motivated global citizens ready to lead tomorrow’s world.
The diversity on the EF International Academy campus promotes global concepts — ranging from literature to economics — to play out in an inclusive classroom setting. For instance, students don't simply read about history. They discuss the world's political systems and history in real-time with fellow classmates from Germany, China, Canada, the United States and more. Students are offered a variety of different viewpoints, and encouraged to ask, research, and analyze the information to form their own opinions about the subject matter.
