Spanish Immersion School, and a comment about English education

This photo concludes my little series of the Spanish immersion school in Tamarindo.

While we are on the subject of education, I will give a brief report on a subject of great interest to the ex-pats who live in the Tamarindo area.  For many years the Costa Rican Country Day School, based in San Jose, has operated an English language college preparatory school just a few miles from Tamarindo, in Brasilito.  Most of the residents of Tamarindo are foreigners, and many of them send their children to the Country Day School.

The Country Day School is a for-profit business and it recently announced that it was withdrawing from the school near Tamarindo because it was not making enough money from that school.

Fortunately, they are cooperating with a new community based Board of Directors that will keep the same teachers and will operate the school as a non-profit. Many people think that the school will actually improve despite the loss of the administrative support of the school in San Jose.

This week we have photos of of the Cathedral of Milan, Italy, posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

School administration is always a complicated business.

Hopefully, the new non-profit will bring the much-needed language resources to the community!
