How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

None. No.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

PTO

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

The American Nicaraguan School children and parents are not friendly nor acceptable to foreigners or diversity. If you are a foreigner DO NOT enroll your children in this school, it doesn't matter what grades they are in. I had children in elementary, middle and high school, and they all experienced the same treatment as well as with the parents. It will make your children suffer of severe depression and low self-esteem. I had to withdraw them from this school. My children were not the only ones suffering and even though we parents spoke to the director this is not on their priority list. The administration is very much aware of the problem but doesn't do anything because the foreigners leave within 1-5 years. What they don't understand is that others are coming and the treatment towards us does not change. A requirement to enter this school should be native born Nicaraguan with a very well known last name. They claim the school has an American environment but it's not, it's a Nicaraguan environment. If you don't speak Spanish you are not accepted by your peers and become an outcast. OVERALL, THIS IS A VERY POOR SCHOOL!!!!! Saint Augustine Prep School, Nicaragua Christian Academy, Notre Dame and Lincoln can be potential options. LOOK AROUND!!!

The German school is a good option. There are also some very good options for the child who can deal with Spanish, such at Colegio Centroamerica. Jeffrey McCrary www.lagunadeapoyo.blogspot.com
