Karl C. Parrish School (Barranquilla)

The idea for the creation of an American type school in Barranquilla, Colombia came originally from the Propeller Club, a civic-service type of organization that was active in the 1930’s and later became the American Men’s Society. Several of the members had children who couldn’t find a satisfactory education in English, which would prepare them to continue their studies in high school and college in the United States. Once the idea was launched, it was discovered that many Colombian families would also be interested, besides numerous other nationalities in the “foreign colony”. The new school was this born with a truly cosmopolitan, international character.
