Academic Program - Bureche School

The Bureche Curricula runs through twelve grade levels, forming a seamless program aligned to and exceeding the requirements of the Colombian Ministry of Education.

Education in Bureche is standards based and modelled on the Common Core system. Teachers constantly track each individual student´s progress ensuring understanding and learning, maximizing every student’s potential. Bureche students work with American textbooks and workbooks that are imported yearly. Bureche is a bilingual school and the majority of a child’s day is spent in an English environment. Understanding and love for their Colombian culture is affirmed through reading, literature, social studies and Colombian studies classes taught in Spanish. Students have access to a wide range of textbooks, reference books, stories, manipulative and interactive software. Every classroom is connected to the school's wi-fi. 

The academic program is rich in projects and events challenging students to apply and develop their newfound abilities in real and rewarding environments. Throughout the year children can look forward to displaying their skills to parents and the community in moments like the Science Fair, Model United Nations, Speech Contest, Technology and Art Fair.

During the school year students and parents receive four formal progress reports. In cases of delayed academic success, parents and students receive additional support from the Learning Center. New students receive additional tutoring in English and support from the English as a Second Language team.
