This chapter explores the way that a private “English” school in Argentina negotiates curriculum demands at the global and national level. On the one hand, its International Baccalaureate programme positions the school within an educational frame that has cache locally and globally. On the other, the school also offers the state-based syllabus in an innovative fashion that involves some “curriculum chicanery” from the administration. Juggling these demands is best suited to a school with the corporate nous and wherewithal to manage them. Consequently, the school’s everyday practices strategically support an elite clientele that demands a valuable and exchangeable commodity: namely, private education that outstrips its public equivalent.

Keywords:   Argentina, International Baccalaureate, elite education, curriculum chicanery
