how we teach

Our talented teachers balance local Peruvian and international perspectives, creating a rich exchange inside and outside the classroom, so our students are motivated by their experiences and global awareness.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

Using our international curriculum, our teachers always make learning fun inside and outside the classroom so your child will develop a lifelong love for learning.

Our balanced approach of connecting what they’re doing inside and outside our school allows our students to build upon their problem-solving skills; to explore new interests; and to increase their self-motivation.


Our teachers work side-by-side with your child to set their own goals and give the necessary support or challenges.

INTEGRATED TECH

TEACHING WITH TECHNOLOGY

At CPB, we have a high-speed infrastructure that allows our teachers to seamlessly weave technology into lessons, building upon our students’ technical skills and digital responsibility, as a consistent part of their learning experiences.

We take advantage of our interactive Smartboards; iPads for interactive learning for Primary School; and MacBooks for Secondary School.

By equipping our students with leading tools and resources like these, we support their education in the STEAM fields and prepare them for the effective use of technology in problem-solving, creativity, and innovation.

TEACHER QUALITY

As a Nord Anglia international school, we equip our teachers with top global resources. Using our online platform, Nord Anglia University, our teachers undergo professional development training to stay up to date with the best teaching practices and to connect or share tools with global experts.

Additionally, our teachers are evaluated annually in a process that includes observations and feedback to improve their practices.

OUR TEACHING AND LEARNING STANDARDS

At CPB, we set international standards among our teachers to establish the outcomes for each year group, from Nursery to IB Year Two, motivating our students to reach the necessary requirements for the IB Diploma Programme and to achieve the results that open doors to the world’s best universities. With over 20 years of experience teaching the IB Diploma Programme at CPB, our teachers know how to help our students succeed.


We also know that having a certified level of proficiency in a foreign language is advantageous for our students’ international study and work opportunities. We work closely with our students to certify their English using the Cambridge English Assessment as well as their French from the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs DELF examinations.
