Our Mission


Founded in 1975, The International Preparatory School is a small, international school located on beautiful grounds in the foothills of the Andes in Santiago, Chile. IMG_2356The International Preparatory School provides a distinguished education for children from 2 to 18 years old, beginning in Playgroup and continuing to Year 13 (Grade 12). With its British-based curriculum, nurturing atmosphere and dedicated staff, The International Preparatory School offers the individual care and attention that allow children of all ages and abilities to thrive. The school is committed to fostering a secure happy, and stimulating environment in which students are inspired to reach their full potential by developing a lifelong love of learning.

The International Preparatory School offers the international community the opportunity to place their children in a local school while ensuring that they receive a multicultural education of the highest international standards. Our small class size and favourable student/teacher ratio facilitate this personalized approach. Each child develops his or her academic ability and a strong sense of identity, well-being and self confidence.

The International Preparatory School also provides an alternative for parents from the national community who would like their children to develop strong English skills and multicultural awareness to better prepare them for the challenges of an increasingly complex world. Our students make lasting connections with children from diverse backgrounds and cultures and world cultures. They cultivate a strong language foundation and acquire flexible skill sets as they prepare to become global citizens.
