New in Monteverde

For Families in Costa Rica temporarily:

For the 2024-25 school year, we have a total of 1-2 spaces available across grades PreK, Kinder, 3, 5, 6, 8, 11. 

For the last few years, even during the pandemic, we have been very full. Openings for ongoing students occur only when a family either moves or decides their student will not continue. That creates openings in specific classrooms.

When there is an opening, we then consider applicants for that class who have submitted applications for the specific grade level. With our priority of providing a stable community for our students and primarily serving local students, we often must weigh offering a seat to those who are only here for a year or two vs. longer-term students.
