The following article is the result of an investigation about mechanisms and strategies applied in high school education to generate whats known as "peace culture in Colombia", a society that seeks to transform a generalized context of armed conflict into one were negotiated solutions are the first choice. The intention of transforming this context was manifested in the peace treaty of 2016 between the Colombian Government (2010-2018) and FARC guerrilla. During the second half of the twentieth century, society has experienced the consequences of this conflict, which are evidenced in the prioritization of violence as a mechanism to mediate differences. Because of this, it is necessary to display the different ways in which society is being prepared to live in a peaceful environment. One of the most important areas to accomplish this is the education system (pre-school, middle school, high school, College, university etc.). In the following research two schools and their experiences are studied (IED Antonio Jose Uribe and Colegio Santa Francisca Romana located in Bogota) using mixed methods such as, surveys, interviews and workshops. The results showed how peace and violence are two aspects present in the daily life and not necessarily narrowed down to politics.
