I am very pleased to announce that Mariposa Azul American School is expanding and changing its name to:
Las Terrenas International School
and Mariposa Azul Preschool
Las Terrenas International School now has a website! http://ltis2.wix.com/ltis (It is still under construction so please let us know if you see any errors or have any suggestions for improvement)
We’re looking forwards to an exciting year ahead as the school grows from one class to three, all taught by professional, qualified, native English speaking teachers, and we add a Specialist in the creative arts (music, drama, art).
Classes will be limited to 12 students (10 in preschool) to provide for the highest quality teaching and individual attention. Openings are still currently available, and can be reserved with a deposit of 1/2 the inscription fee. Contact Annette Snyder at this e-mail or by calling (809) 496 0245 or (503) 915 2417 (US).
Quality education in English and Spanish
Our goal will be excellence in education with:
High Academic standards and
Innovative teaching that encourages creativity, imagination and
independent and critical thinking
Offerings for 2012 – 2013 will be:
**Preschool (3 and 4 year olds)
**Pre-Primary/Kindergarten (5 and 6 year olds)
**1st and 2nd Grades (6, 7 and 8 year olds)
Preschool and Pre-Primary/Kindergarten will both be completely bilingual in English and Spanish. 1st/2nd grades will be taught in English with some Spanish components and activities.
Class sizes will remain small (12 students maximum) so that all students receive individualized attention.
I am very excited to have found extremely qualified, experienced classroom teachers, each with a Masters degree in Education. At the crucial first grade level our teacher is a Reading Specialist who has trained other teachers in effectively teaching for emerging literacy. We will also have a Music/Art/Drama Creativity Specialist that will work with all of the classes.
The announcement attached will be coming out soon in the Info Diario, and there should be an announcement this week in the LT-7.
