At Colegio Menor Quito, we take a hands-on approach to learning through activities and projects where your child takes the lead and receives personalized attention from their teachers.

Our liberal arts curriculum is all about the innovative structure provided by our highly talented teachers to study a broad range of ideas and subjects. Your child will connect ideas across the different fields of study and apply their critical thinking skills in any context.

Alongside activities in and out of the classroom, our students learn several subjects, all taught in English. This balance of giving equal importance to learning in and beyond the classroom helps our students define who they are and how they want to contribute to our world.

That’s why our students have unlimited opportunities to discover the beauty in their journey of personal growth. They’re scientists, artists, musicians, writers, and mathematicians ready to make an impact.

Exceptional learning experiences
At Colegio Menor Quito, we take our skills and interests beyond the classroom. During fun activities and projects designed for the real world, your child develops the confidence, teamwork skills, and resilience to make their mark.
Exceptional learning experiences
We go beyond the classroom at Colegio Menor, as we take a holistic approach towards education. That means we give equal importance to personal interests as much as academics, so your child develops a well-rounded character. Our immersion in English, global awareness, innovative student projects, and extracurricular activities are only some of the exciting experiences that will motivate your child to stay a lifelong learner.

Menor places great emphasis on the arts—specifically music, visual arts, theatre, and performance—where many of our students develop outstanding abilities. Starting from Early Childhood, our students are exposed to a wide variety of creative classes such as art history, song writing, and music classes with specialized teachers. And since we’re supported by world-class resources from our Nord Anglia collaborator, The Julliard School, we know that the arts play an essential role in our students’ social and academic growth. 

Meanwhile, our promising innovators in the STEM fields have fantastic learning experiences through our MIT collaboration. This practical, hands-on program will open your child’s eyes to the possibilities of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. We use our MIT challenges to develop skills for tomorrow.

An advanced learning environment
We’re constantly transforming how we teach by investing in the world's best-designed learning spaces, complemented by our premium technologies. We encourage “design thinking” in every aspect and, as a result, our students can’t wait to build their own projects!
An advanced learning environment
Whether it’s within our innovation hubs or our makerspaces, we’ll bring your child’s dreams to life through our world-class technology and state-of-the-art facilities.

With a “do-it-yourself” approach, our students create their own activities and projects, often working collaboratively to develop the teamwork and leadership skills they’ll need in the future. Our facilities are designed with the necessary equipment to actualize their ideas and build their goals. Our science labs, outdoor exercise fields, multifunctional facilities, and a newly inaugurated Performing Arts Center allow our students’ talents to shine.

Our teachers will shape learning experiences around your child’s creativity and critical thinking skills, so that “design thinking” is interlinked from start to end of every project. As a result, our students are always constructing knowledge rather than just memorizing it: they’re exploring ideas and issues, challenging traditional assumptions, and solving complex problems.
Academic Excellence

At Menor, our students can live up to their greatest potential, as we open the doorways they need to make their mark. And with our excellent AP results at or above international results—and our immersion in courses taught in English—our students go on to attend the best universities in the world. 


Academic excellence
Our liberal arts-based education allows our students to doubt, question, experiment, and experience many subjects before they commit to any single career path. Their curiosity is therefore their guiding light, supported by their critical thinking skills and creativity.

From the very start of your child’s learning journey in the Early Years at Menor, we immerse your child in 100% English while encouraging them to play and discover. By the time they’re in High School, our students not only master their course material in English, but they also have the confidence and self-direction to choose the subjects that strategically help develop their own talents, interests, and goals.

This personalized approach—of your child taking the lead—allows your child to especially benefit from our Advanced Placement (AP) program. We offer a wide range of challenging AP courses at university level that our students can pick from, in a way that best prepares them for attending their top-pick college. Some of our students even receive scholarships for their academic excellence and achievements.
