HISTORY AND HERITAGE

Our San Agustín campus opened in 1982 as Instituto San Roberto. The need for bigger facilities saw the expansion to the new San Agustín campus in 1984, with middle school levels introduced in 1989. To serve the growing population in the south of the city, our Valle Alto campus opened in 1994.

In 2015, San Roberto joined Nord Anglia Education, the world’s leading organization for premium schools. We’re now part of a thriving network of international schools with access to an array of learning resources and support from world-leading education experts.
