Colegio Manquecura Ciudad del Este, Santiago, Chile


El Colegio Manquecura Ciudad del Este is a member of the Manquecura Schools network, which has three schools in Santiago, Chile for students aged 3-18 years. Our mission is to give children a strong grounding in academics and values in order to succeed in a global environment. Teachers, students, parents and guardians work collectively to achieve excellent academic and pastoral results.

El Colegio Manquecura Ciudad del Este develops well-rounded students with the skills and abilities they need for a bright future. Our three-phase educational programme focuses on academic quality, intensive study of English and the development of strong values. Manquecura schools teach the Chilean national curriculum, which is split into three parts according to age: Parvularia Education (age 3-6), Básica Education (age 6-13) and High School (age 13-18). We prepare students for national assessment through the Sistema de Medición de la Calidad de la Educación (Education Quality Measurement System), in which we consistently have excellent results. Similarly, we provide students with the necessary tools to reach high levels of attainment in the Prueba de Selección Universitaria (PSU — national university entrance exam). In 2013, the school scored 573 points, well above the Chilean national average.
