In 1988, when Mrs. María Cristina Gutiérrez de Urbina returned from Stanford University with two Master of Arts degrees from its School of Education, one in Administration and Policy Analysis (APA) and one in Design and Evaluation of Educational Programs (DEEP), she brought with her a dream of creating an institution for higher learning. Subsequently, in 1989, Blue Valley School was founded.
As a contribution to the information parents naturally seek to choose a school for their children, we convey our concept of education. We believe that true learning happens when it produces behaviour modification, when it inspires the person to act constructively. This implies that education needs to include instruction in academic matters but also in the formative aspect (development of non-intellectual faculties)
