Nobel International School welcomes new owners

Head of School, Mike Farrer, welcomed Brian Rogove, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of ChangedEdu, at Lagoa earlier this month, where he met parents and staff at both the Lagoa and Lagos schools.
Mr Rogove brings with him extensive experience in education as the former CEO of Cognita Schools, Asia, for eight years, where he managed 10 international schools with more than 9,000 students from 2 to 18-years-old before founding ChangedEdu.
“We are extremely excited to have Nobel Algarve join ChangedEdu and we look forward to this long-term partnership where we can bring our extensive education experience and network of brands to continue curriculum development and improve resources at NISA ensuring all our students are well prepared for the future. We will continue to offer its dual national and international programmes of study and the A Level programme which remains the most common entrance exam for UK universities,” said, Mr Rogove, Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ChangedEdu.
Head of School Mike Farrer, who joined Nobel Algarve from South Africa in Summer 2016, said: “The team and I at NISA are incredibly excited about the arrival of ChangedEdu; from my perspective they are an Education company who know Education and have a vast amount of educational knowledge and we will be enriched by their involvement in our wonderful school. The partnership will only add benefit to NISA as we begin this new exciting chapter in our history. I have spent time with Brian Rogove, the Founder and CEO of ChangedEdu and I have been impressed with his vision and desire to make our school an even better learning environment for our children. We are certainly excited about the future.”
ChangedEdu operates a range of education brands in Asia, Europe and the United States, and is responsible for the care and well-being of over 14,000 students and 1,300 staff. They focus on three verticals of an individual’s learning journey - Private Schools & Early Childhood Education (18 months to 18 years), Learning of the English language (children and young adults) and Enrichment including Study Abroad programmes and University Counselling (Kindergarten to 18 years). The offerings ensure all students under ChangedEdu receive exposure towards international standards of excellence and have the support to ensure they are positioned well for the rapidly changing world we live in.

Why do they call themselves Nobel School?? Are there any members of the Nobel family? Or connections to the Nobel foundation in Sweden?

Or just trying to sail in the waves of the Nobel Prize??

Try to stand on your own feet for a change.
I´ve checked with the lawyers of the Nobel foundation in Stockholm and they have no connecton with this Algarve school!!
