How Do it Function Costa Rica’s schools have a simple goal: to create a well-educated populace that will one day improve their national (and even global) lot. ( Anywhere,2018)


FIRST STEP IN EDUCATION PRE-SCHOOL From an early age, it is important to help students recognize that learning is an enjoyable activity. The preschool activities provided by Education.com below range from number matching games to rice art, but they all have one thing in common: they inspire children to learn. Engaging preschool activities encourage young learners to learn new skills while having a great time. (education.com,2006-2018)

PRIMARY PROGRAM

Improving Academic Performance Primary classrooms are self-contained and foster a safe learning environment. The school day consists of six 45 minute periods and two breaks, one mid-morning and one mid-day for lunch. The day begins at 8:00am and ends at 3:00pm, followed by after school activities. The weekly schedule includes a variety of special classes. Every class visits the library at least once a week, which is located in the primary building. The library has a wide selection of children’s literature and general research materials that support primary curriculum. Other specials such as Visual Arts and P.E. Primary teachers also schedule times to use the computer lab and tablets within their classroom, integrating technology into the curriculum. Teachers are required to plan curricular field trips to enhance the learning experience and take advantage of the rich, natural environment of Costa Rica. Upper primary teachers may also plan an overnight trip with their classes. Math, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, and Spanish are taught daily. There are leveled Spanish classes taught by native speakers. Primary subjects build a solid foundation of skills and abilities including cognitive, affective, and social skills. Character development is an important part of primary ( education. Teachers work together to support student growth.

Due to the nature of a small school, students receive guidance not only from their homeroom teacher but from the entire primary faculty. (Costa Rica International Academy,2016)


SECONDARY PROGRAMS A SCHOOL DAY

AThe Secondary Program (Grades 7-12) curriculum culminates in a college preparatory Advanced Placement (AP) program. Academic subjects in the middle years provide a preAP foundation that prepares students to be successful in high school AP courses. The curriculum foundation is based upon U.S. Standards of Learning in organizing curriculum and planning the content of specific courses. The intent is to make moves into our school and back to the U.S. or other international American Schools as smooth as possible. The school day consists of six 55 minute periods and two breaks, one in mid-morning and one at mid day for lunch. The day begins at 8:00am with homeroom by grade levels and ends at 3:00pm, followed by after school sports and activities. (Costa Rica International Academy,2016)

UNIVERSITIES IN COSTA RICA

A Students who complete 11 years of education receive a Cotsa Rican Bachillerato Diploma. This is an accredited level of education from the Costa Rican Ministry of Education. In terms of higher education, there are some state and private universities available here. The public universities are considered a higher quality and a more desirable choice for students. These schools are ideal for students who are bright, willing to work hard, and eager to learn. Perhaps the best university in the country is the University of Costa Rica, which has been given awards for the quality of education it provides to students here. Some details you can include in your letterhead are your company name, physical address, and contact information. This covers your phone number, mobile number, fax, and email address.

One Day, I Want a opportunity Beaches, tropical rainforests, a highly developed society and an enviable quality of life: studying in Costa Rica may sound almost too good to be true. In the QS Latin America University Rankings 2018, Costa Rica claims six universities among the region’s top 400. While this is relatively few when compared to countries like Brazil and Mexico, Costa Rica’s top-ranking institution, Universidad de Costa Rica (UCR), comes in at a very respectable 19th, and has been strengthening its global standing in recent years. There are more than 60 universities in Costa Rica to choose from, of which five are public. Six Costa Rican universities are featured in the QS Latin America University Rankings 2018, and two of these are also featured in the QS World University Rankings® 2018.  Other specialist universities in Costa Rica include the Universidad Estatal a Distancia (for distance learning programs), along with the Instituto Tecnologico de Costa Rica and the Universidad Tecnica Nacional (both offering a technical focus). Compared to public universities in Costa Rica, private institutions are smaller and often specialize in a particular subject area. For example, the private, non-profit international university EARTH (Escuela de Agricultura de la Region Tropical Humeda) specializes in agricultural sciences. Graduate students may be interested in the UNmandated University for Peace or INCAE Business School, which claims to be the best business school in Latin America. (Symonds Limited,1994-2018)
