Curriculum, community involvement, and pupil-teacher relationships similar to those found in contemporary US schools are featured at this school.

Every student satisfies course requirements for a US diploma, and some boys and girls also pursue the Ecuadorian National or the IB Diploma. All high school pupils enroll in at least one IB class. Although English is not the first language of most students, a majority of each year's graduates go on to colleges in the US.
