About Us

The School of the World is so much more than just a school.  Even though we come from countries all over the world, have different cultures, life experiences, and speak different languages, we are all united by these shared ideals: we have an intense and deep passion for life, an intrepid sense of adventure, and a deep desire to learn all we can about the world and ourselves. And for many of us, the learning vacation that we had at the School of the world combined these ideals into the Adventure of a Lifetime! ¡Pura Vida!

“If you’re … hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel – as far and as widely as possible. Sleep on floors if you have to. Find out how other people live and eat and cook. Learn from them – wherever you go.”

– Anthony Bourdain
