For the 2016 school year (which runs January-October in Guatemala), we have had many changes to help better our school. We started by hiring a new principal; we believe that she will bring a new work strategy to provide a great learning environment for our students. We have a new staff of teachers that come highly qualified in their fields.
At the end of the 2015 school year, we remodeled our school to provide a better learning environment for our students. This year, we are hosting a university that will teach classes on Saturdays. In the future, we hope to house our own university. We will soon begin the construction project for our new addition for the pre-kindergarten program and administration offices. Also, we would like to start a remodel of our gymnasium, depending on future funds.
We are receiving a lot of positive feedback from parents about the remodeling we are doing at the school. They have also acknowledged that we have an exemplary education program compared to other surrounding schools.
