About US


Escuela Bella Vista was established in 1948 in Maracaibo, Venezuela, to provide a quality international education to the ex-pat children of the region's thriving oil industry and foreign businesses.

The school was and continues to be the top-tier international school in the Zulia region. Due to the country's political and economic instability, the student body's demographics have shifted to consist mainly of Venezuelans. Additionally, the school's founding educational objectives remain unchanged, as do its central partnerships with Chevron and CEVAZ (Venezuelan American Center of Zulia).


Escuela Bella Vista aspires to be a leading International School dedicated to preparing our students to emerge as citizens of the world–empowered, resilient, critical thinkers capable of adapting to a rapidly changing global society.


Escuela Bella Vista is a college-preparatory school that engages students with an enriched International Baccalaureate (IB) and accredited U.S. program. Our mission is to prepare students to create, discover, and develop their unique skills in a globally diverse world while fostering a values-oriented culture of inclusion and belonging.
