The Highlands Story
Highlands began in 2003 with a handful of families that desired a world-class, English-speaking, Christian education for their children. From the beginning, HIS has sought to give the parents of La Paz an excellent education; an education that is centered on the following core values:
- Servant Leadership
- Christ-like Compassion
- Biblical Stewardship
It is estimated that 75% of people living in La Paz will be under the age of 25 in the next 10 years. Instilling these values in the next generation of Bolivian and International families is the heartbeat of Highlands International School.
The future is very bright for Highlands International School. God has blessed HIS with many new families and we are looking to build new facilities and expand on our current location. Enrollment has increased rapidly over the last 3 years and we hope to continue to grow to approximately 200 students by 2012. The facilities will come, but our best asset is our teachers who love and care for kids with the compassion of Jesus Christ.
