Alto Del Monte School


The small hilltop pueblo of Alto Del Monte lies about half way between the main airport at San Jose and the pacific coast. Currently it has only eight students but has a paid principal/teacher, a teaching aid and a cook. The Ministry of Education pays for the staff only funding for most educational materials such as textbooks, furniture utilities and the building itself by the community much like in the US. All the schools we have visited are very clean, the students all ware uniforms and their parents are committed to educating their children.
