HOW WE TEACH

Our highly qualified, bilingually experienced teachers are ready to make a substantial impact on your child’s learning and development. They’ll build a strong relationship with your child to ensure they’re ready to get the most out of their day.

ETON TEACHERS

Our teachers play a significant role in the Eton family: they facilitate a culture of equity, excellence, and relevance. Appreciative of individual and cultural differences, they model appropriate behavior, showing respect, courtesy, and self-discipline among all Eton students and school staff.

With their care and passion for learning, our teachers create deeply meaningful experiences that motivate our students to pursue their interests, construct knowledge, and develop life skills—emphasizing research, experimentation, and the shaping of reflexive and critical attitudes.
