Welcome to El Instituto de Mandevilla
El Instituto de Mandevilla is
an independent preparatory school that is registered with the Ministry of
Education and is a recognised member of the Jamaica Independent Schools’
Association, JISA. The institution welcomes students of intelligence and
integrity from diverse cultural, racial, socioeconomic, and geographic
Our mission is to develop leaders with a passion for excellence in a
Christ-centred environment, equipping them to use modern languages as they
function in the global environment. We value excellence, enthusiasm, and
integrity. We also strongly promote good family values.
The wide-ranging academic program promotes excellence in all subject areas. Our
experienced and qualified staff members guide students in mastering skills,
acquiring knowledge, and thinking critically, creatively, and independently. The
school strives to help all students achieve their potential not only
intellectually, but also artistically, athletically, and morally, so that they
may lead responsible and fulfilling lives.
El Instituto is committed to establishing a community that encourages people of
diverse backgrounds to understand and respect one another. In its programs the
school seeks to promote a balance of leadership, cooperation, and service,
together with a deeper awareness of the global community and the Gospel of Jesus
The institution’s motto “El Que Quiere, Puede” translates from Spanish as “Where
there is a will there is a way”. This motto challenges students in mind, body,
and spirit to go beyond their current circumstances to achieve their goals and
dreams no matter how difficult these may be to attain.
We are proud of the strong partnership between us and our parents. We have a
vibrant Parent Teachers Association that works tirelessly along with the school
to ensure the best learning experiences for our children.
