It has been an incredible 2016 so far for San Juan del Sur Day School. In addition to growing the student body, breaking ground on a second building, developing an enrichment program, adding a day camp, and establishing a steering committee, San Juan del Sur Day School is also now an accredited Nicaraguan school via MINED (Nicaragua’s Ministry of Education). Though a lengthy process, it was also a wonderfully comprehensive step toward future international accreditation. It also encouraged our teachers and staff to review and further develop our curriculum, incorporating even more aspects of Nicaraguan history and culture into daily lessons. As a recognized school within the Nicaraguan education system, San Juan del Sur Day School was invited to participate in the annual Independence Day Parade, which took place on September 14. It was truly an honor to participate and a wonderful way to pay homage to the country we all call home. We invite you to visit our facebook page for additional photos!
