Schutz is Family is our school motto. We live this through the strong sense of community and the relationships fostered between the Board, Head, staff, students, and parents. Every aspect of our program focuses on teaching and learning and doing what’s best for our students. Students pursue a rigorous and challenging curriculum that prepares them for success in some of the most competitive colleges and universities throughout the world.  The word PRIDE (Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Dignity, Excellence), embodies the traits we believe in and teach our students as they go on to become the future leaders of our societies. 

We PRIDE ourselves on having an outstanding, highly-qualified, and innovative staff who are passionate about their work, dedicated to their students, and committed to our mission statement and core values.

We PRIDE ourselves on attracting students who are intellectually driven and engaged in their learning and who display the ability of becoming global, caring, and service-oriented members of their societies.

This is what shapes our Schutz community.
