Welcome from the General Director
Welcome to Santa Cruz International School. This website only a glimpse only provides a glimpse of our community. So, whether you are new to our school or already know us – you are invited to visit us in person to see how our boys and girls are learning in a warm and caring environment.
We are blessed with a large and beautiful campus, fine facilities and excellent teachers. This year we celebrate our 25th year of functioning and our young history is filled with academic, sporting and artistic achievement.
We are very fortunate to be in the heart of the economic capital of Bolivia, surrounded by a society that shows great initiative, creativity and intellect, with a growing impact of the cultural, financial and political institutions of our nation.
We feel that the real indication of our school’s quality lies in how well we encourage and stimulate our students to want to learn, to fully explore their intelligence, work on their innovation, creativity and confidence to become compassionate leaders in this challenging new modern society. Our students and alumni are the greatest ambassadors of the Grand Griffin family – speak to them and they will tell you what makes SCIS so very special.
You will find that our student present themselves with openness, sincerity and respect, whether it is in-or-outside the classroom, on the sportsfield when we compete with other schools or when we visit different places.
I am very proud of our school, the staff and students and how we all aim to fulfill a long-standing dream of Kevin Hanley, the founder of this school, in which he promised wholesome, quality education in English to all residents in Santa Cruz.
Welcome once again.
Dr. Carolina Ibañez de Hanley
