Where do american kids go to school in Bogota? Nueva Granada is expensive(12,000 plus a year), but I want my son (first grade) to be with other english speakers and be in a similar curriculum as the US schools. Anyone know anything about Anglo Colombiano or Colegio Saint George which I saw on this web site? Are there other americans at these schools? Thanks!

Yes I am 17 Although soon I will become a citizen.

I love my country, and I am very interested on it, and hopefully will have a career in the government after university. In fact there are many young people like me very interested and fond of Colombia.

Thanks for the compliment, but I also played some videogames jejeje.

I didn't go to school in Bogota, but I am going to live there, and also have many friends and relatives there that keep me informed.

School There is a tiny school called El Camino Academy. It was established over 20 years ago by missionaries working in Bogotá, or nearby. Currently there are over 150 students, Kindergarten through 12th grade receiving North American education. Not all the students are North American, there are quite a few Colombians. Here is their email if you want to contact them: elcamino@eca.edu.co

Fundacion Colegio de Inglaterra_The English School Hi All,

I am colombian and I grew up there. I attended The English School from pre-K to 5th grade. It is an excellent school, the english quality is rather high and it offers the IB program. If you are interested in knowing more about this school e-mail me at Juliana@students.olin.edu

For some strange reason they don't appear to have a web site; but don't let you be fooled by this. It is an amazing school. I recommend it 100%

Schools I went to CNG for a couple of years, then moved out of the country and. to be quite honest CNG is a great place to socialize but thats as far as it goes.

CIB, Colegio Internacional de Bogota, has an okay reputation IB program

Anglo Colombiano is a great school. I think thats the one id reccomend.

English School, heard good comments about it.

Gran Bretana, is actually quite small but it appears in all international school catalogues. I think they have the GCSE's, A-levels and IB.

Hope you find it helpful

Taking the fact that i recently joined the ANGLO COLOMBIANO, as a new student i found it a spectacular place, if you want your children to really stay in touch with their english, thens its the best, with spanish i would say schools such as moderno, san carlos for boys, santa pacha for girls. The students at el anglo are actually really friendly, there are also many high class kids hee, but to say the truth, theones who show off their money arer what we call the 'nuevo ricos' or recently rich. I myself am English, i started in the school in August and really have a great circle of friends, my parents are always complaining about my social life. CNG, is a good school but really they are way too snobby and stuck-up, academically they really aren't the best, jus the richest, but then again, generalizing isn't good. If you plan on teaching in a good colombian school the kids will always answer back to the teachers, at first it was surprising to me, well i'm used to saying 'master Blah' to my teachers, all they say is Simon, they really have all the knowledge about their rights as students.
El anglo is IB, perrsonally i think its not a good system, but you have the option if you want to do GCSE, or whatever is used in the US.

Hope that helps....
