Teams that win, and compete with fair play

Hi, I’m Rudy, coordinator of extracurricular sports. I am very excited about this project, because last school year our teams won 4 championships in Terrassa and a second place at national level, with great sportsmanship and fair play.

I think that this year the sport will continue to be the talk of Gresol International American School. I encourage you to participate!

The after-school program offers a wide variety of activities, from kindergarten through high school.

GRESOL International-American School offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities that serve as an excellent complement to the development of our students. In addition, all activities take place during school hours, never after school hours.

Our activities are designed to inspire students, enhance learning, develop skills and foster new friendships.

The activities are taught by teachers of the school together with professional specialists, for a better complementary development of the school activity.
