Nestled in the cloud forest community of Monteverde, Costa Rica, the Monteverde Friends School was founded over 60 years ago by Quakers who left the United States in search of a country and community that supported their peaceful principles. Today, our school continues to promote the universal values of peace, love and respect in the context of a challenging bilingual education and a sense of community.
On April 27th, students, parents, community members and other friends will be walking the 11 kilometers from the school to the San Gerardo Lookout at the Arenal Volcano. It is our annual Walk-a-thon that supports our school’s Arts and Physical Education programs. Please consider sponsoring a child you know or sending a flat donation here.
The new meeting house timber framing project is underway. Students, parents, meeting members and other friends are sharing their time to help create this beautiful building. Please visit the project’s facebook page for updates and ways to help.
The Christmas Auction has begun!
Parents and community members have used their talents and creativity to provide a wide variety of options for the auction. Please visit the auction site and make a bid on the offers that most excite you. Proceeds support our Arts and Physical Education programs. Thank you!
Recently, the meeting hosted a potluck for all the school staff. It was an excellent opportunity to laugh together, get to know each other better and eat delicious food while connecting over a topic near and dear to our hearts: the Monteverde Friends School.
