Cognita International Network

We are Cognita, an international network

“Several years ago we began a journey guided by the vision of reimagining the way we learn and teach. A process of seeking new opportunities for our students and teachers, with the idea of evolving towards an education that is more global, international and connected to the world of today and the future.”

John Mackenzie, Principal at Dunalastair School

During this search process, Dunalastair understood the need to belong to an educational network that would open doors to new opportunities.

Today, Dunalastair is proud to belong to the international British group Cognita Global, based across four continents and developing a network of more than 100 schools.
