We Make A Difference!
Our school isn’t a traditional American school, it offers a very different experience where we emphasize the partnerships with our families and honor the role of parents as their children’s first and best teacher.
The cultural diversity of our community enriches our program. Journey School recognizes and respects the uniqueness and potential of each child and tailors our program to the needs and interests of each individual at his or her own developmental level.
We see children as competent individuals who are naturally curious and continuous learners.
Our teachers provide the opportunity for discovery and learning; encourage active exploration and investigation; promote questioning, and guide and facilitate growth and development.
US accredited, Journey School of Costa Rica’s central tenants continue to be kindness, empathy, compassion and academic excellence. We work closely with Cognia, PBL Works, REGGIO Children and Conscious Discipline.
