What day is it at the CBR?

In this calendar, you can quickly locate the academic day number (from 1 to 6) corresponding to each date.

Preschool

Young children possess a natural inclination towards curiosity, which serves as the driving force behind their quest for knowledge and exploration. As a result, we guide them through their initial steps on the path towards inquiry and discovery.

Primary

Theoretical knowledge found in books differs significantly from practical experience in the real world. At our institution, we recognize this distinction and focus on developing skills and stimulating interests through project-based learning.

Middle and High School

Standing on the threshold of an important milestone for one’s future is a thrilling experience. At our institution, we strive to empower citizens in a thoughtful and accountable manner.

Milena Tibaquirá, Mom

“The years at Richmond School were incredible! I grew, learned, and built friendships that will last a lifetime. Make the most of every class, every opportunity, and don’t be afraid to be yourselves.

Today, I am studying Business Management at Florida International University, my dream university, thanks to the international certifications provided by CBR, my bilingual education, and the academic achievements I attained in school. Additionally, I secured a sports scholarship based on my skills as a soccer player.

I believe that the key to success lies in enjoying the process and learning from every experience that CBR naturally offers.

Make the most of your time at Bilingual Richmond School and build a bright future!”

“CBR represented the opportunity to approach different areas of study in a didactic and dynamic way. In short, it represented the academic, sports and social integrity that a student needs in their preparation for their academic and professional life. It was the place for mental development that I needed to be who I am today, because I went through difficult situations and resounding successes that helped me develop critical thinking skills. Because of this, I consider the Richmond Bilingual School to be an excellent education for me”.

Juan Camilo Laborde, Former Student | Summa Cum Laude - Universidad de los Andes

“​It is an institution that is projecting the students to the future, educating responsible children with the ability to solve the different challenges that awaits them, but always having the values as main objective ​​sown into them from their academic and personal education. And in this the relationship between school and family plays a very important role”.

Rocío Velandia, Mom

“My time in the CBR meant great personal and academic growth. There I had experiences that have contributed to my training as a professional and these are the ones that have contributed to my character and determination. This stage will always be a fundamental piece in my life because it is full of magical memories with unforgettable people. And the human warmth, the appreciation and love which I have been received at school is one of the many reasons why I will always consider the Richmond Bilingual School as a second home”.
