The school follows the philosophy of the “Basic School” which projects the school as a social organization with importance given to academic achievement, character development, and community responsibility. The curriculum is similar to that of a school in the U.S. with instruction in Spanish only in language and social studies for those fluent in the language. Spanish is taught as a second language to those who need this instruction. The high school program is U.S. college preparatory with a parallel program for those who want to study at universities in El Salvador. The school is a member of the International Schools Association of Geneva, Switzerland. It is also accredited by the Salvadoran Ministry of Education.
