Ecofriendly School

Inquiry and Projects

We seek to develop caring students who help others and act intentionally to make a positive impact on the lives of others and the environment.

As part of the PYP, we ask the question how we share the planet engaging in inquiry into our rights and responsibilities as we strive to share finite resources with other people and other living beings, communities and the relationships within them, equal opportunities, peace and conflict resolution.

We provide diverse learning experiences that include reflection as well as carrying out specific actions to protect the environment.

School Garden

The school garden project “Tierra de Niños” enables student led initiatives with nature empowering them to be agents of change adopting and promoting sustainable lifestyles at home, at school and in the community. (under construction)

Caring for water

Our campus has a special water treatment system for each type of used water avoiding unnecessary contamination and re-using as much as we can. Our gray water, water from sinks that have soap, are collected in a special tank and then treated to be used as irrigation for the school’s vegetation (under construction)

Waste management

Our school practices responsibility when addressing the waste generated every day in our classes.


Composting allows us to turn organic waste into a high quality fertilizer for our plants. (currently underway)

Separating paper and plastic

We work with our Cachimayo District recycling program by having our students separate these items in class every day.

Reducing consumption and waste


We have reduced our consumption of paper by using electronic documents and printing less. The majority of secondary school assignments are sent electronically as well as communication with families and among staff. Our campus does not need to be painted very often as low-maintenance materials were chosen during construction such as polished concrete and brick.

Reusing materials

The cafeteria benches were made from the wood used in the formwork when pouring the concrete to build the school. Our flowerpots are recycled paint and oil containers. In addition, many of our students’ artistic and creative projects make use of items that were thrown away.

Food Services

All students have a lunch period during the school day. The school has a lunch service provider guaranteeing a healthy, balanced, and tasty meal. The cost of the meals is covered by families choosing to participate.


The school lunchroom provides students with the opportunity to have lunch in a comfortable space. A fully-equipped kitchen enables the preparation of daily lunch for the students who choose to take advantage of this service. Microwaves are available for students who bring their own lunch from home. During recesses, students can buy healthy snacks thus promoting healthy eating habits among our school community. Our students always have access to drinking water to stay hydrated throughout the day.

Transportation services

The school coordinates with a bus service that provides safe and timely transportation to and from school each day.

The service is based on established bus stops along the main routes in Cusco enabling shorter travel times than other buses that stop at each house. In addition to the driver, each bus has a responsible adult that accompanies the students along the way. This is an optional service that interested families pay for separately. Buses leave from Cusco and Urubamba.

They also assist pedestrians. In addition they are responsible for the entry and exit of our students, staff and visitors.
