The school is located in the city of Siguatepeque, in the heart of Honduras. The city is approximately 3,400 ft above sea level and surrounded by lush, green mountains. Siguatepeque enjoys an excellent climate year-round, with mostly sunny days and cool nights. Siguatepeque has two squares in the center of town - the park and the plaza. Both are surrounded by stores, restaurants, and even some great ice cream shops! Several events are held throughout the year in the Plaza, which has a main stage for activities. The park is a great shady place to spend an afternoon after school eating ice cream, having coffee with a friend and people watching.
Siguatepeque has a population of 70,000 and it is located two hours away from the two main cities in Honduras: Tegucigalpa, the nation's capital and San Pedro Sula, the largest industrial center. Both cities have international airports, with flights arriving regularly from Canada and the United States. Siguatepeque is also about 45 minutes away from Lake Yojoa which is a great place to hike up to some waterfalls or get some fresh fish. Siguatepeque's central location is ideal for someone who loves to travel. It is about two and half hours from the nearest beach and about six hours to the Bay Islands.
Our school is split into 3 sections: the kindergarten program (Kindergarten and Senior Kindergarten - Preppatoria), the elementary program, (Grades 1-6) and the secondary program (Grades 7-11). Our students take approximately half of their classes each day in Spanish and half of their classes in English. For example, the Gr. 1s may have their Spanish classes in the morning and their English classes in the afternoon. In the secondary program, students take some subjects in English (ie. Phys Ed, Science, English Language) and some subjects in Spanish (ie. Geography, Math, Computers). All of the teachers in our Spanish program are local Honduran teachers. In our English program, some of the teachers are bilingual Hondurans, while others are from abroad (Ie. Canada, England, U.S.A., etc.).
