A multilingual education for the world of tomorrow, built on solid principles, and available for everyone from toddlers to sixteen year olds.

“We give the best of ourselves to that they give the best of themselves”

Salesians Donostia is an international school for children aged 0 to 16 years, that offers the opportunity to love learning, develop and grow intellectually, personally and socially.

Because educating is much more. It is giving value to emotions, it is preparing students for the challenges of the world, it is developing in them creativity and inquisitiveness, it is encouraging critical thinking.

It is learning to be happy to become what they want to be.

How do we do it? Using the most avant-garde teaching techniques.
