Our story is about people. Visionary people, with huge dreams, coming together to create a better future for their children, grandchildren and families.

Our story begins with three families: the Sampers, the Devers, and Byingtons dream of a school that offered a co-educational, American-style program for a diverse population.

During the first 20 years, CNG moved to four locations. The last location, under direction of Mr. George Tait, gave the children more space to engage in extracurricular activities and diferrent sports. During this time CNG became part of the Inter-Ametican Schools Services (IASS).

Their dream followed by action made the impossible become a reality.
