New Superintendent Appointed in Venezuela

Senior Associates Ralph Jahr and Jim Ambrose were pleased to announce that Escuela Campo Alegre (ECA) in Caracas, Venezuela has chosen Mr. Terry Christian as its next superintendent for the 2016-2016 school year. His wife, Morena, joins him. Currently, Terry is completing his twelfth year as Head of Nishimachi International School in Tokyo, Japan. For 25 years, he has served in educational leadership positions, such as principal, deputy head, and head of two schools. The work has brought him to Mauritius, Turkey, Colombia, El Salvador, and Jamaica. Terry holds a Master's Degree from Oxford Brookes University in the U.K.

Established over 70 years ago, ECA is a pre-K through 12th grade school, serving primarily children of families working for international corporations and diplomatic agencies. More than 500 students from 40 different nations attend ECA, an authorized International Baccalaureate World School, fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA) as well as the Council of International Schools (CIS). The school emphasizes "…academic achievement and artistic, athletic, recreational, and multicultural opportunities to prepare students for university studies and challenges of global citizenship" ("About Us: Mission").

The campus boasts first-class facilities, including technology centers, science labs, and art, music, and drama centers for every division. Not only does ECA have Internet-connected computers in every classroom, but it also floats four wireless Mobile Labs and provides wireless connections throughout the school. Students also benefit from a fully-equipped, modern library and media center, a 630-seat professional theater, two tennis courts, five gymnasiums, and a swimming pool with a large viewing gallery. Finally, ECA provides door-to-door bus service to students living in the residential areas in the eastern part of Caracas ("Facilities").
