Welcome to El Instituto de Mandevilla, a kindergarten and preparatory school which distinguishes itself as a Christ-centred institution that remains committed to facilitating the development of students as leaders with a firm moral purpose and a passion for excellence. In keeping with the mission, our diverse curriculum adequately prepares students by strongly emphasising character development, modern languages, music, sports and extra-curricular activities.

Our students come to us from Jamaica, the Caribbean and across the world. We cherish our reputation for helping all succeed, as we believe each child is meant to soar. In the words of our founder, Audrey V. Salmon, “Education should be like a tree, with solid roots and towering branches.  Children should be free to express themselves and aim to soar from the primary level to the tertiary level and beyond as butterflies do atop the branches of a tree”.

The institution’s position as #1 in the Ministry of Education’s Region V was again confirmed  by the Jamaica Gleaner newspaper article published on November 24, 2015 entitled, “El Instituto de Mandevilla Remains Top School” based on the 2015 GSAT results.

We always look forward to welcoming new students and parents to the El Instituto family.
