Program Details

In 2012, Peru came last among the 65 countries that took part in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), which tested the educational skills of 15-year-olds worldwide. In 2015, another assessment was run and this time Peru performed slightly better: it came out 63rd out of 69 nations. But it remains a serious problem for Peruvian students, as only the students of the Dominican Republic performed worse in Latin America.

These results are not only a consequence of secondary education, but it also began when they were children when they received early education and this did not help to give them the tools to consolidate their self-esteem and to improve their academic performance.
At Multilingual school, we want to contribute to improving the standards and gives them the best tool any children can have for their future which is a foreign language
