Learning

Colegio Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the American School of Lima, is an independent, International Baccalaureate World School, providing a college preparatory program in English for students from age 3 through grade 12.

The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP), for students ages 3-11, focuses on the development of the whole child as in inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. Students in the 21st century are faced with the challenge of learning about an interconnected world where knowledge is constantly developing and changing. The PYP prepares students to be active participants in a lifelong journey of learning.

During grades 6-10, students progress through the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (MYP), which provides a framework of academic challenge that encourages students to embrace and understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world and become critical and reflective thinkers. The overall philosophy of the programs is based on the concepts of intercultural awareness, holistic learning and communication. MYP students are required to study two languages, humanities, sciences, mathematics, performing and visual arts, physical education and technology.

Students in grades 11 and 12 register for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program (DP), the IB Certificate and/or the Official Peruvian Program. Students progress through a challenging curriculum that prepares them for university. Students are encouraged to ask challenging questions, develop a strong sense of their own identity and culture, develop the ability to communicate with and understand people from other countries and cultures, and to learn how to learn.
