While most schools tend to keep their information private until a personal interview is made, there are a few that have volunteered information. This is the case of Kings School, which is located at El Cangrejo, a neighborhood 15 minutes away from Casco Viejo.  In “good Panamanian” they are located in the street that of Hotel El Panama, next to Egypt’s Embassy. Complete information
