Schools and Education

Schools and Education in Jaco, Costa Rica.

Jaco offers some fantastic local public and private schools for you to consider in the area if you are a parent. At Las Nubes School, located just north of Jaco near Herradura, students are primarily taught in English. The school offers education to children of all ages ranging from preschool through high school.

A Montessori-style school, Ficus Tree, offers classes for children from 3 years old through first grade.

Costa Rica also places an emphasis on its public education system, and Costa Rica boasts the highest literacy rate in all of Central America. The school year starts in early February and runs through mid-December, so kids have an extended break over Christmas, New Years, and throughout the month of January.  It's also typical for schools to offer a 2-week break in the month of July.
