International schools operator Cognita has acquired The Greenland School in Santiago, Chile, the company’s twentieth school in Latin America.
The Greenland School was founded in 1995 and educates 1,600 students aged between three and 18 years old, teaching the Chilean National Curriculum.
Pilar Neumann Aguiree, principal of The Greenland School said: “Joining the global Cognita family begins a new chapter of our history as a school. It will also create new opportunities for us to develop as a school community – for our educators and staff, as well as for our students and their families.”
Josep Caubet, Cognita’s chief executive for Latin America, added: “We are delighted to welcome The Greenland School to Cognita. We look forward to sharing the experience and expertise from across our global group as well as learning more about Greenland’s own best practices. In this way Cognita will continue to develop Greenland – and our wider family – for the benefit of all students and teachers.”
