History

 

Escuela Lomas Altas has existed since 1976 when it was a preschool and primary school with 130 students and 12 teachers. It has been under the present ownership since 1986 when it was moved to its existing location at Montañas Calizas 305, Lomas de Chapultepec. It is in one of the most sought after residential areas of Mexico City.

Since its founding in 1976, Lomas Altas has been an international school defined by the ethnic pluralism of its student, teacher and administrative population. The consequent need to meet the demands this diversity represents has been a challenge and a priority throughout the school’s existence. Requiring the dedication and persistence of a team of highly-trained professionals, a dynamic and constantly evolving curriculum has emerged, strengthened by the social and communication skills we encourage, build and reinforce.

History2We have always viewed our school as a microcosm of our increasingly global society into which our students will become integral and positive participants.

The values, beliefs and traditions of the local culture are the springboard from which we gain perspective and are able to reflect upon the myriad world cultures. Students at Escuela Lomas Altas will be enriched not only by broader horizons but will also embody the spirit of tolerance and empathy so essential to the creation of a more fair and peaceful world.
