When we asked about the schools in Costa Rica, they said...

"This school is small, less than 300 students, but the atmosphere is safe and friendly with a focus on student success. Every teacher I have met is enthusiastic and enjoys his/her job. I would also encourage any parent to be prepared to volunteer their time in support of the school because AIS depends on parent-volunteers to serve on various committees. Overall, I am very satisfied with AIS," said one expat in Cariari - Heredia with children at American International School.

"If your expat package does not cover the cost of a school- Take advantage of the language and culture and try to get your children to benefit from it by experiencing it. Avoid over paying at the other schools- this school is for kindergarten to high school," remarked one parent with kids at New Hope in Santa Barbara de Heredia.
