St Paul's College was founded in 1954 by Jane Anne Chinton. For many years the school operated out of a house located on O'Higgins 996, Hurlingham. Miss Chinton named the school after St Paul's Cathedral in London, England, where she was baptized.
put description hereSt Paul's was a primary school, teaching Spanish in the morning and English in the afternoon. Forty students were enrolled in the first year and by 1976 the register had reached one hundred and twenty five. As there was no dining hall or kiosk at the school, students would either return home for lunch or simply cross the street for some home cooking at Mrs Storey's house.
In those days, the school emblem was an “Ombu”, in reference to the large tree that dominated the play area. As for sports, students would simply play football in the playground.
In 1976, Miss Chinton decided to retire, but it was her wish that the school should continue and not be dissolved. Mr Luis Calliari and his wife, Elizabeth, both teachers at the time decided to take on the challenge. At the same time they renamed the "El Bosque" Kindergarten, which they started in 1975, to "El Bosque de San Pablo".
In December of 1977 the house on Garay 950 was acquired, which adjoined “El Bosque de San Pablo”, and the school was moved to this location. The school logo was also changed to a double-headed eagle, with the motto: “The pursuit of excellence”.
My daughter goes from kindergarten and is finishing elementary school. I have nothing but words of praise for the school.
While there are always things to change or improve, managers on both sides are always willing to dialogue and improve for the welfare of the children. They are always at the forefront of the new study methodologies and the truth is that the level while demanding is very good. I entrust you with my most precious treasure so obviously I recommend it.
I'm comfortable with school. Given the problems I received timely warnings that were very important and I always found a good channel for dialogue. My children are very happy. The academic level is very good too and demands an intense rhythm, of the whole family.
