Our History

The Colegio Dominicano was founded on September 1, 1980 on Juan Pablo Duarte Avenue as a morning school. In 1983, it was moved to La Calle Del Sol No. 4 where afternoon sessions were opened. In 1992, it was converted into a multilingual and multicultural institution by implementing English and French as foreign languages into the curriculum. In 1993, the location was moved to Km. 4 ½ on the Carretera Santiago-Licey.

Since 2004, we have been an institute that serves as a Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification center (certifications in Word, Powerpoint, Access, and Excel), following the top guidelines for technological advancement. Since 2017, we have received an “Ecoescuela” certificate, granted by the Institute of Environmental Law of the Dominican Republic (IDARD) and the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) for the work we complete for the protection of our environment.

As time passes, we continue to venture into new educational strategies of the moment to provide our students with the most updated and modern programs.

Metodolology

The classrooms are centered around the student as an active member that builds their own knowledge using constructive strategies in an environment that encourages their own thought development. They use tools such as their critical thinking skills and each subject’s own processes to develop their knowledge.

This system transforms complexity into simple and concrete actions based on the development of life skills such as peaceful coexistence with others, social emotional skills, teamwork, collaboration, problem solving, confidence, leadership, and entrepreneurship in a global world in the 21st century.

The students achieve communication skills like listening, writing, speaking, the ability to collaborate, and participate in groups. They use technology and communication to contribute to the purpose of offering a relevant, contextualized education to construct a better, united world for everyone.

The students are at the center of the process. The teachers direct and guide the activities that lead to the achievement of our curricular goals.
