Unlike many American Overseas Schools, roughly 90% of the student population has a common primary language. While all classes are taught in English (except foreign language classes), Spanish is the language students use when speaking to each other and, unless your Spanish is fluent, you can expect students to have conversations you do not understand on campus. This dual culture provides a unique campus atmosphere and an excellent opportunity for developing your Spanish language skills. The student population is, on the whole, very bright and academically motivated. Many students participate in extra-curricular activities and about 99% of SCCS graduates attend colleges and universities in Latin America, Europe or the U.S.
The SCCS workday begins at 7:30 and ends at 4:00 on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday; Wednesday 4:30 and Friday 3:15. All staff members are encouraged to be involved in an extra-curricular activity. While there are opportunities with established student organizations, staff members are also welcome to design an extra-curricular activity according to their personal skill-sets or interests.
