Colegio Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR), The American School of Lima, is an independent international school that provides a college preparatory program in English for 1,500 students from age three through grade twelve. Founded in 1946 by American residents in Peru, the nonsectarian, nonprofit institution is the official school of the US State Department Office of Overseas Education in Peru, serving an international business and diplomatic community as well as host-country nationals seeking a North American-style education.
The school currently occupies a 9.3-hectare campus in Camacho, La Molina, and is working with Perkins Eastman to develop a long-range master plan for school facilities and grounds, which include a full facilities audit of the existing campus.
Perkins Eastman led Colegio FDR’s various stakeholders and user groups through a step-by-step, consensus-building process that included programming workshops and visioning sessions to identify space needs and opportunities for improved facility support. The master plan celebrates the campus’ long-standing history in Lima while incorporating necessary and forward-looking improvements to the existing buildings and proposing 21st-century options for new buildings to replace aging construction.
