Markham College

August Angulo 291, Miraflores, Lima, Peru

Founded to meet the educational needs of sons of Anglo-Peruvians and British expatriates working in Peru, the school has experienced a change in student population over the years and now serves a coeducational, largely native enrollment. Markham’s bilingual programming, however, continues to blend British and Peruvian systems. Overall, just over half of the curriculum is delivered in English, with this proportion rising as high as 70 percent in some sections of the upper school. Pupils prepare for the IGCSE examinations, then engage in the two-year International Baccalaureate program. Boys and girls may opt not to pursue the IB Diploma, in which case they follow the Peruvian national program. University preparation is of paramount importance in both sections. To facilitate an understanding of the country among its students, Markham schedules expeditions and excursions to all parts of Peru. In a typical year, about half of the pupils engage in a trip outside the city limits. Options, which vary according to age, include outings to coastal areas; tours of regional cities and the jungle; extended community service projects in remote areas; and adventure treks to sites such as the Amazonian Rain Forest and sections of the Andes Mountains in Huascaran National Park. The early years and lower school programs operate at two separate locations along Avenida La Republica.
