History

 Colegio Internacional de Carabobo in Valencia, State of Carabobo, Venezuela, was organized in 1955 with four companies: Celanese, Firestone, Goodyear, and U.S. Rubber.  These provided the initial capital.

 

In 1958, a ten-classroom school was constructed in El Trigal, a residential sector of Valencia.  During the 1962-63 school year, a library, four classrooms, showers and dressing rooms, and a photographic darkroom were added.  In 1968, the High School building was constructed and was opened for classes on September 2, 1968.  The building consisted of two science laboratories, a computer laboratory, and classrooms, a lounge, and offices.  The High School library, constructed in 1968 and renovated in 2006, today houses 13,500 items.  A “comedor” and Middle School were added during the early 1980’s.  A multi-purpose recreational building was completed in August of 1988.  Most recently, two annexes, a lower primary building, a second Middle School level, and a maintenance complex were added in the mid 1990’s.

 

During 2004-2006 an Interactive Nature Trail was built behind the Elementary building and the North Annex.  This project includes a Dino Dig, a Tropical Mural, an Aquatic Habitat, Outdoor Classrooms and a Canopy Tower.

 

During the summer months of 2007 the Secondary Library was renovated and during 2008 the Elementary Library and P.E Locker Rooms were remodeled. A P.E. classroom and workout room were built next to the P.E. Office.

 

During the year 2008-2009 school year the Mothers Club led a campaign to provide new chairs for all the classrooms at all levels.  During the summer of 2010 some electrical upgrades were done and a/c units where installed in Secondary classrooms. During the 2010-2011 school year extensive electrical upgrades were done to provide a/c units for the classrooms at the Elementary level.

 

During the summer months in 2011, the plant improvement projects included: finished installing air-conditioning units in the Elementary classrooms and North Annex, electrical up-grades, installation of generators around campus, and security fences surrounding the school were raised.
