Soyuz Bilingual School began as a dream of Professor Olga de Chanis, with the initiative of creating an institution that guarantees mastery of the English language; simultaneously enhancing our mother tongue, Spanish, as a way to promote the success of its graduates and as a response to the needs of a school that will educate in values through experience, and fulfills its role promoting sports, culture, art, civic awareness, technological innovation, and respect towards others.

Soyuz Bilingual School opens its doors in March 1997 and was formalized through Decree No. 95 of May 25, 1999 signed by then Minister of Education Mr. Pablo Antonio Thalasinos. The school begins at the Chanis family´s property with an enrollment of 22 students, divided into nursery, pre- kinder, kindergarten and first and second grades. Today the campus is still running in Canta Rana Urbanization, Carmen Salerno Street, Chitre, Herrera Province, Republic of Panama.

In March 2001, the first building with modern installations was inaugurated, followed by the construction of new extension buildings and investments uninterrupted up to date.

In 2011, the first graduation of High School took place. Twenty-six years of effort and collaboration of our beneficiaries: teachers, administration staff, students, and parents have transcended, strengthening the educational system through their work and support.

The school’s outcome has been of great impact and importance in the community. Activities such as Shakespeare and Cervantes’s Weeks highly demonstrate the ability and fluency with which our students approach the English and Spanish languages.

Desarrollamos la Feria Científica, Obras de Teatro, Judo, Ballet Clásico, Banda de Música, y la singularidad de nuestro Conjunto Folklórico, el cual ya se proyecta internacionalmente. Además, con la educación física se pone énfasis no sólo en los deportes tradicionales como el baloncesto, beisbol y fútbol, sino también el tenis, voleibol, ajedrez, tenis de mesa, etc.

Soyuz Bilingual School es dirigida por: Sra. Olga F. Chanis como Directora Académica, Eustiquio Chanis como Director Administrativo, y Beáta de Ruiz como Subdirectora Académica.
