Welcome from our General Director


Welcome to Colegio Menor Quito!

Our 27 years at the school have been memorable.  We have built this story together as a community.

Whether you are applying from abroad or from nearby, I want to give you all a warm welcome to this amazing family.  We take great pride in reliving all the wonderful memories and watching our kids grow, get wiser, smarter, kinder and happier.  We are learners at heart, and we are all committed to raise critical thinkers who use their creativity to think outside the box and become the leaders that will take the world to a better place showing integrity and values all the step of the way. That is the essence of Colegio Menor!

Our school is a vibrant place where we value individuals’ interests, passions and talents and challenges each of them to reach higher levels of understanding, curiosity and exploration. We put your kid at the center and core of everything we do and we want their voices to matter and be heard.  All of this is achieved in a framework of respect, kindness and all the values that make up our strong Character Counts Program.  With a broad and  academic program, extracurriculars, the exposure to arts, music, science, athletics and languages, we create an engaging environment for every student.  This fosters our sense of creativity, innovation, communication and collaboration.

For all of this, we have a wonderful team of committed and prepared educators.  They deliver personalized and engaging instruction that helps our students achieve their success.  Our students are happy at school and they feel safe!

This holistic program understands that the academics, the connection and our special mark as human beings, make up who we are and how we can collaborate in this world.  We recognize our students’ involvement in service and leadership opportunities.  It also means collaborating in world wide platforms like Global Campus, or events with other schools and backgrounds. 
This experience has now been enhanced by Nord Anglia, and we are able to provide more challenges and opportunities for all of our students. We welcome you to be part of this unique and wonderful community.  

Please feel to contact our Admissions Department for a personal call or tour of our campus. I am certain you will feel all the care and passion we share at our school.

We are all Menor. #OneHeartBeat

All the best,
Cristina Cortez
General Director
