St. George’s School
Quilmes, Buenos Aires
St. George’s School Main Academic Building
St. George’s School is one of the two most prestigious schools in Argentina (the other being St.
Andrew’s Scots School). It was founded by Buenos Aires’ British community in the late 19th century
as one of many such institutions intended to promote and preserve British cultural traditions in the
“New World”. The school’s physical appearance resembles traditional British boarding schools and
students are required to wear uniforms. Additionally, most courses are taught in English giving St.
George’s a distinct bicultural feel.
