Our History

The Judy Sharp Foundation (formerly Fundación Centro de Estudios de Aprendizaje y Reeducación) was founded in 1976 in Madrid by Judy Sharp to offer remedial assistance in learning to Spanish and English-speaking students of normal or superior capacity. These students, in spite of having no serious and/or primary intellectual, physical or emotional problems, often have difficulties achieving success in school. Our first center was located en El Viso, Madrid, where remedial classes were given in English and Spanish.

It was recognized officially by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science in 1978 as a private, non-profit cultural foundation.

The Judy Sharp International School, a branch of the Judy Sharp Foundation, was founded in Pozuelo de Alarcón, Madrid (Spain) in 1982 to serve as a private, independent, non-profit alternative, co-educational day school for English-speaking students.

We have worked with students from all over the world, including United States, United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa, Korea, Venezuela, and Spain. Many of these students have returned to their respective countries to continue their studies in schools and universities.

At the end of the school year, we celebrate a graduation ceremony including guest speakers, friends, families, teachers and students. This gives us the opportunity to celebrate the student's achievements.
