Our attractive facilities are located on a well landscaped, twenty-three acre campus in Camacho, La Molina, a southeastern suburb of Lima. Lima, the capital city of Peru, lies in the center of the coastal desert area, eight miles inland from the pacific port of Callao. Greater Lima, with many beautiful suburbs, has a population of about 8 million and is the fourth largest city in South America. The "City of the Kings" has changed in the past 20 years from a quiet town of Spanish colonial charm into a modern metropolis.
The Elementary, Middle School and High School programs are housed in facilities distributed throughout the campus. The Dr. Anne S. Johnson Media Center, known as the Media Center, constructed in 1984 has over 40,000 volumes and a wide range of audio-visual resources. The school has more than 500 computers installed in 3 labs, many classrooms, and most offices. Most are networked and Internet accessible. Well-equipped science labs and 2 large gymnasiums also support the instructional and extracurricular programs.
