Founded: 2002
NICS school since: 2003
Grades: PK - 12
Capacity: 300


HIS is located in the Urbanization Valle del Sol - Mallasilla in the South part of La Paz city. The school is outside of the Calacoto area. Living in Calacoto is safe, this area has many places to shop and to eat in a very peaceful and friendly environment.


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; a school that is centered on the following core values:

  • Servant Leadership
  • Christ-like Compassion
  • Biblical Stewardship

It is estimated that 80% of people living in La Paz will be under the age of 25 in the next ten years.  Instilling these values in the next generation of Bolivian and International families are the heartbeat of 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. The facilities will come, but our best asset is our teachers who love and care for kids with the compassion of Jesus Christ.


Every activity at HIS should exemplify excellence. Excellence is the reflection of followers of Christ serving in response to His love and for His glory. Teaching at HIS requires to teachers to come and connect to our community, we admit students from every background and respond to them as special cherish the creation of a loving God.


HIS is dually-accredited by the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS) and the Association Christian Schools International (ACSI).
