Costa Rica: Snapshots – The Friends School
At the Monteverde Friend’s School, the library is on the honor system for checking out books, and it is open 24/7! It’s an example of how terrific this K-12 bilingual, Quaker based school is in Costa Rica.
“Surrounded by Nature, Supported by Love”
“Nestled in the cloud forest community of Monteverde, Costa Rica, the Monteverde Friends School was founded over 60 years ago by Quakers who left the United States in search of a country and community that supported their peaceful principles. Today, our school continues to promote the universal values of peace, love and respect in the context of a challenging bilingual education and a sense of community,” notes the website <http://mfschool.org>.
They have a garden too.
We loved seeing this busy school with students and teachers learning together in a beautiful atmosphere. We felt the love of learning in the Monteverde Friends School.
Go visit Escuela de los Amigos when you are in Monteverde.
Pura Vida, Renée
