Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our mission is to nurture generations of ecologically aware, academically well-rounded bilingual individuals. We will work to provide students with the knowledge, values and skills needed to make environmentally and socially conscious decisions on a local, national and global scale.
The Cloud Forest School (el Centro de Educación Creativa) is an independent school located on 106 acres of cloud forest land in storied Monteverde, Costa Rica. Home to some 200 Pre-School through 11th graders, our student body is made up of 95% local Costa Rican students, and 5% international students. A full 75% of our students pay deeply discounted tuition.
Given that the school is located in the cloud forest, we have a strong ecological focus and implement environmental learning into our curriculum. Our staff is a mix of North Americans and native Costa Ricans, which makes for an interesting and diverse community. The school started as a result of conversations had by North American and Costa Rican residents of Monteverde about the lack of quality education locally. The CFS is very proud of its legacy and we are constantly working to ensure our students are ecologically aware, academically well-rounded bilingual individuals.
