About the Saint George's School...

The school was founded in 1958 by Mrs. Mary Allen de Acosta in Bogot�, Colombia.  Mrs. Acosta started the school at the third bridge of the Autopista Norte but after 3 months the school ran out of water and so had to come into town, where a house was rented in Calle 77 above the Once for 9 months and then moved to a beautiful English style house on the corner of 77 with S�ptima where the school stayed for 7 years.  The school grown a lot  during those years so that Mrs. Acosta was obligated to move to land she had bought in Suba.  In those days there were only green fields all the way to Calle 100, it means that the school was out of the city.  Mr. Hernando Acosta (Mrs. Acosta's husband) who died in 1988 built the first classrooms all the way up the hill and designed the layout of the school. With a comfortable size, the campus, possesses a beautiful landscape.   The Saint George's School has gradually grown over the years to become an educational centre of high regard and a motor  of many changes in the school system in Colombia.
