International Demand for Maple Bear Canadian Schools Continues to Grow

Posted in Global Family / Maple Bear Global / School Owners on Thursday, September 19th, 2019

It was only 15 years ago that Maple Bear Global Schools opened its very first school in Indirapuram, India. Today, there are more than 420 schools in 20 countries around the globe, as Maple Bear Global Schools expands at a phenomenal pace. In the past few months alone, Maple Bear Global Schools opened more than 12 new schools and extended its network into three new countries – Malaysia, Nepal and Romania – as well as opening its first school in Hong Kong and expanding into a new Emirate, Abu Dhabi, in the UAE. This expansion into new countries will continue, as Maple Bear will soon be opening its doors in Kenya and Bulgaria.

But growth is not coming solely from new countries. The largest and most established Maple Bear countries, India and Brazil also continue to expand and recently opened new schools this past summer. And growth continues at a steady pace in other areas of the globe too, including Morocco, Vietnam, the Philippines and the USA, which all opened Maple Bear schools in the past few months.
