School Location Panama

We have two locations in Panama City to choose from depending on your needs. Our first and main location in Panama City is in Paitilla, San Francisco is centrally located in a great and safe area with easy access to public transportation in one of the best neighborhoods within the city and walking distance from other important neighborhoods, the financial area, the sea, restaurants, malls, bars, nightclubs and much more.

Our second location within the city is in Clayton in an area called City of Knowledge which is just a few minutes from downtown Panama City and the Panama Canal. This second location is mainly for school and university students looking for a campus atmosphere because it has about 5 high schools walking distance, about 20 international universities and ONG and international companies within walking distance.

School Location Boquete Town

Our third and newest location is in the center of Boquete, Province of Chiriqui (Next to Costa Rica)

To the west of Panama City, is the province of Chiriquí with a population of 462,056 inhabitants and surrounded by innumerable attractions, including the District of Boquete. This valley, which is characterized by its natural attractions, fauna and flora, is the most important tourist destination in Panama.

This location is centrally located in an area where you will be able to walk to various locations and the entire town is the safest in the entire country and probably Latin America. In just a few minutes, you can be in the mountain, a waterfall, or just admiring so many flowers and nature or hearing so many types of birds. It has been chosen in many travel blogs and articles as one of the best places to visit or live as a nomad or retire.

The Cervantes accreditation is a quality accreditation that pays specific attention to the academic aspects of a Spanish teaching center.

Achieving and maintaining this accreditation is an arduous and intense process that is obtained through maintaining optimal academic processes and results.


BILDUNGSURLAUB recognition, shortly known as BU, allows German employees to receive an extra five to ten days of holidays per year, during which they must attend some form of educational training, i.e., a language course. BU presents a win/win situation for employee, as both parties’ benefit from the increase in knowledge of the employee.
