Finding the right school for your children is one of the most important decisions you will make. Doing this in Lima can be a challenging task, especially when you don’t know many people in the city who can share their experiences or recommend a great school. To save you some time and effort, we have created a list with the best known international schools in Lima. These schools offer a multicultural and bilingual education with mostly English, but also French or German, as their core languages. In all of these schools, Spanish is also taught.  We have provided links to the school webpages, but have summarized most of the most important information for you below.

Most of the schools charge tuition fees in Peruvian soles, but the admission fee in dollars. In the case of pricing in soles, we have made a rough conversion to US$  for your convenience, (using 3.3 soles to the dollar).
