Why come to Madrid? Located in the heart of the Iberian Peninsula, Madrid is one of Europe’s most thriving and fastest-growing capital cities. Madrid is known for its welcoming atmosphere, lively culture, and rich historical, artistic, and cultural background.
Significant urban improvements have made Madrid a comfortable city to live in. An efficient and far-reaching public transportation system makes it an easy city to navigate. Parks and green areas provide wonderful places to practice sport or have walks. Madrid has also become a major hub for international air travel and serves as an excellent point of departure for visiting the rest of Spain, other European countries, as well as North Africa.
In addition Madrid offers travelers and residents a wide array of cultural activities as well as an active social scene. Theater productions, musicals, concerts, dance festivals, and art exhibits are a regular feature of the city’s agenda. Madrid is also known as the ‘city that never sleeps’ with its endless array of bars, cafes, restaurants, and clubs, all open until the early morning hours.
The American School of Madrid, founded in 1961, is a private coeducational day school which offers an educational program from pre-kindergarten through grade 12 for students of all nationalities.
