A small group of parents decided to open a brand new, English school on August 15, 2012. This newly founded 21st Century school, offers a high quality, internationally focused education, with an emphasis on strong values for the growing children in Valledupar, Colombia. Currently, the students study from K4 to Grade 8. We will add a new grade in each successive school year.
After some consultation with leading national and international educators and the support of other regional international schools, La Sierra has constructed a philosophy, an educational program and curriculum, which allows students to develop, international mindedness, multicultural awareness, critical thinking skills and values, together with a profound respect for the environment and for people around them. It is hoped that these elements will influence the building of a better society for Valledupar, Colombia and eventually for the world.
