The Lomas Hill Bicultural model prepares young learners not only to develop knowledge and skills in English as a first language, but also placing the same emphasis in Spanish language teachings. Bilingual children achieve higher concentration levels, better problem-solving skills and higher self-esteem. Beyond providing the ability to speak the language, being bicultural provides us the social skills required to coexist and do well amongst different cultures and backgrounds.
As a school authorized by the International IB Organization, our students learn to think for themselves and to take responsibility for their learning processes. Not only does knowledge matter, Lomas Hill also encourages young learners to be aware and sensitive of their culture within the local, national, and global contexts by participating in social projects supported by the knowledge acquired in the classroom.
We seek to form socially-responsible individuals, accustomed to maintaining a balanced life between intellectual, physical and emotional aspects of life. Our aim is to enlighten young individuals with a variety of modern values including honesty, tolerance, and cheerfulness, bringing about the best of their individual capabilities during their development at Lomas Hill.
We support and promote healthy and pleasant relationships amongst students, teachers,
parents, and society. We work to integrate diverse backgrounds, ideals, cultures,
and experiences into our classrooms to enrich our community, the heart of Lomas Hill.

In our view, every child is unique and deserves personalized experience and attention. We are committed to ensuring that all our students receive the support and the academic, social, and emotional tools that allow them to enhance their skills and capabilities to ultimately achieve their goals. We have an integrated approach focused on social and emotional development. Our psychopedagogic team works with all our teachers to discuss the progress of each child to identify opportunities and ways to support their learning and development.
In addition, teachers focus on the interests, progress, and proficiency profile of each child to provide them the unique support and attention that each child requires. Notwithstanding, all children grades 1 to 9 take the MAP Test at least twice a year, which allows us to identify their potential, strengths and opportunities within the global context.
