Costa Rica's Education: A Blend of Tradition and Innovation

In recent years, Costa Rica has been witnessing a change. One where people who visit once or twice enjoy the experience so much that they start to look for more permanent reasons to stay. This goes beyond your typical family-friendly vacation: the relocation trend to Costa Rica is real.
And with so many families relocating here from abroad, the private school system has seen substantial growth. Originally thought as a single article covering private bilingual schools in Costa Rica, we’ve decided to split it in two to cover a wider range of options. In this one, we discuss the private schools of San José and the greater Central Valley area. Another is focused on beach communities.
