The D.S. Warner School started in 2000 with only 5 kindergarten children. The school motto is "Study, Serve and Share" for it is training students to serve the Lord and their communities.
We now have an enrollment of 190 children in 3 yr. old PreK - 6th Grade. Plans are to add a grade each year until we have K - 11. Our computer lab is finished and furnished with 24 + computers, which is three times the amount in the public schools. Partners in Missions helped with the construction of the 4-story building and is currently sponsoring 30 of the students. Seven new families have started attending the church as a result of the school's ministry to the students and city.

The following pictures were taken during the 15th Anniversary of the school November 2 - 9, 2015. The celebration included a parade through the city of Chepen with 9 floats with Bible themes and 4 bands. The local TV station reported the event on the evening news. The school also had a Science Fair with 30 displays in which Karvin was one of the judges. All of the students had on lab coats and explained what their project was and even printed brochures they had designed while in computer class. Our mission team who took part in the anniversary had the opportunity to visit each of the 8 classes as students explained what they had learned this year in Math and Grammar. We were amazed that the 3-year-olds were learning to count and could sing "Jesus Loves Me" in Spanish and English. The school now has 24 computers in its computer lab, which is 3 times the number in the public schools of Peru.

The following pictures are from our August 2013 trip to the school. They had a large presentation that involved the school choir, under the direction of Samuel Perez; typical dances of Peru, under the direction of a profession dancer whose son is a student of our school. Approximately 300 people attended the celebration, which was on the evening TV news.
