Welcome to the Peruvian North American Abraham Lincoln School where over 1 300 students from Nursery to Grade 11 learn and develop in a challenging, inclusive and nurturing, bilingual and multicultural environment. We have been inspiring learning within our community since 1950 and are committed to meet the challenges of this era of knowledge and thus prepare our students to become active, creative and responsible citizens.
In many different ways, we, as educators around the globe, face the challenge of taking education truly into the 21st century; which means that we ought to reinvent our schools for the sake of our children, our students, and the welfare of our world (see Scott McLeod, Dangerously Irrelevant). Both research and good practice make it evident that we need to change our concepts regarding schools, curriculum, learning and teaching an ever changing world and an increasingly demanding society which presents vast opportunities as well as new challenges.
As Anne Shaw, founder of 21st Century Schools, clearly states: “Instead of preparing obedient factory workers our schools must now prepare students to function successfully in a global, knowledge-based society characterized by rapid change". We encourage the development of skills related to critical thinking, problem solving, effective communication, creativity, collaboration, innovation, and adaptability to change.
We meet both Peruvian and International standards and offer our students a rich motivating educational experience based on the three IB programs (PYP, MYP and DP), focused on the development of the whole child. Our curriculum balances both academics and a wide ranging sports, arts and activities program.
