Schools in Guanacaste
Private schools and a good education are not easy to find in Guanacaste. There is one school that offers the US Diploma and an American style education and that is Country Day-Guanacaste located in Brasilito, 400 meters south of Paradisus Playa Conchal hotel. This school opened up in 2000 and is a branch of the larger school located in Escazu.
Tuition for this school pre-k to grade 12, full day is $7,040 per year according to a recent article in the Tico Times.
Teocali School is another school located in Liberia, 2 km north of Burger King. This school offers classes for pre-k-grade 11 but does not offer the US Diploma. They say that they teach in English and Spanish. This normally means that the majority of classes are taught in Spanish and only English class is taught in English. I have not verified this information as I have been unable to contact the school.
Del Mar Academy is another school that is due to open in September of 2007, located in Nosara, between Playa Pelada and downtown Nosara. They will teach grades pre-k through grade 12 according to the report I referred to earlier. Tuition is $6,000 per year.
