A very warm welcome to San Silvestre School and thank you for taking time to visit our website, which we hope will give you greater insight into what makes the school and its community so highly regarded within the city of Lima and further afield in Perú and Latin America.
One of the School’s defining features is the genuine love that students and teachers, both past and present, have for San Silvestre and for each other. Lifelong friendships are made here, the school culture has its foundation firmly based on common values for all and principles of mutual respect, integrity and honesty, and a strong sense of civic and global responsibility are instilled into our students from an early age. Leadership opportunities in all aspects of school life abound, with students taking very active roles in various Councils, House and sporting events, and service learning activities to name but a few.
The provision of the Peruvian national and excellent international educational programmes prepare our students to confidently apply for and attend a number of highly prestigious universities, within and outside of Perú, and go on to play important roles as well-rounded, independent, empowered global citizens and make their mark on the world. The school motto ‘I am, I can, I ought. I will.’ reflects the sense of present and future self and an expectation of the responsibility, initiative and drive our students will develop during their time at San Silvestre.
The holistic nature of the educational experience provided by our team of dedicated educators and administrative staff at San Silvestre is a springboard to success in today’s uncertain world, providing your daughter not only an excellent academic foundation, but ensuring characteristics such as empathy, curiosity, courage, collaboration and resilience are nurtured.
We sincerely hope that you will join our San Silvestre family and allow your daughter to flourish and thrive in our care.
San Silvestre is a leading all-girls school in Lima, Peru. We value and feel proud of our long-standing traditions while simultaneously embracing innovation, which places us at the vanguard of outstanding 21st Century education.
Our students are at the centre of everything we do. Our dedicated teaching staff encourage students to explore their diverse talents and interests in a safe all-girls environment. The rich range of school experiences enables our girls to grow into confident and principled young women. It is an absolute privilege for us to see how they develop and blossom during their time here.
I am proud to say that San Silvestre has been a huge part of my personal and professional life. I have very fond memories of my time in San Silvestre as a student and more recently, I was delighted to see my daughter form deep friendships and enjoy a wide range of unforgettable experiences in school. In the professional realm, I was part of the teaching team in the Primary Section, then a member of the Primary Senior Leadership Team and now I am privileged to be the Peruvian Director.
What do all of these experiences have in common? Our students, staff and parents feel proud to belong to such a warm and caring community of life-long learners. I hope that our website will transmit some of these sentiments. Please explore, and I am sure you will capture something of the essence of our happy and successful school.
Welcome to San Silvestre.
