At the start of the 2017-18 academic year, the newest school in the SABIS® Network, the SABIS® International School – Costa Verde (SIS-Costa Verde), opened its doors to its first students, and when the morning bell sounded on September 4th, 91 excited, young students in Pre-Kindergarten 3 through Grade 4 headed through the school’s gates.

SIS-Costa Verde is situated on a 5.7 hectare campus within the Costa Verde Development Project, approximately 30 kilometers west of Panama City, Panama. In addition to 91 students, the school community is comprised of a team of 30 administrators, teachers, and staff members.
