Colegio Anglo Americano Prescott was founded in 1965 by a group of American, British and Peruvian citizens, who believed that coeducation and an intensive ELT programme would become a good educational option for families in Arequipa looking for the best educational alternative in the city.

Our founders chose the name of the American historian William H. Prescott because of his perseverance, determination and willpower to overcome difficulties in life.

Prescott school has about 1200 students, aged 4 to 17. We have four educational levels within our campus:

Kinder(4 and 5 year olds)
Primary(Grades 1-5)
Lower Secondary(Grades 6-8)
Upper Secondary(Grades 9-11).
Our campus has a unique design, which makes it safe, spacious, and student friendly.

Since we are a non profit private school, Asociacion Educacional Anglo Americana Prescott is our promoter. This educational board determines the school policies and management. Our board looks after the conservation and improvement or the school´s infrastructure, guarantees the development of our educational mission with an intensive teaching of the English language and academic excellence.

Prescott school is located in Arequipa, the second largest city in Peru. Arequipa is a quiet and peaceful city, surrounded by majestic volcanoes and built in a beautiful valley.

Previous ISSE visitors to our school have enjoyed the kindness and openness of our people, the geographical and ethnic diversity of our country as well as our cultural wealth.
