“As a first year teacher I couldn’t imagine working in a better environment. The staff is very helpful, you have plenty of prep time, and there are a lot of opportunities to get involved. You have the flexibility to shape your classroom how you see fit and are encouraged to try something new. Colegio Bolivar is an incredible place to be a teacher.”

“Thank you for the opportunity to work at such a beautiful school, with an equal beautiful and caring community. I can honestly say that I have never worked in such an enchanted environment as this one, and chances are, I probably never will...Colegio Bolivar has been more than just a place of employment. It has been my refuge, my home, and my community as well… It has been a ‘once in a lifetime’ adventure.”

“After 13 years of teaching and 4 different schools, both international and within the United States, I can say without a doubt Colegio Bolivar has been my favorite place to work. Not only the physical beauty of the campus, but the lovely students, professionalism of the administration and friendliness of the staff have made this an unforgettable place. Teaching here for the last three years has been an absolute pleasure.”

“Cali is a beautiful place to live, great weather, a wonderful culture and an ease of living I hadn’t previously experienced. The real appeal though is the school...is a refreshing and invigorating experience... I am struck by the feeling that we are valued. Colegio Bolivar strives for excellence and accepts the fact that everyone has a part to play in this process. Here, teaching is fun… the administration—it is outstanding. They are inclusive, supportive, easy to talk to, and very dedicated.

They do not seem to have forgotten that they are teachers first and administrators second… the students… are all products of an elite society but they are also the best– socialized students I have ever encountered. They are polite, respectful, talented, intelligent, and focused.”
