Education

Although public education is free in Costa Rica, a small number of foreigners actually send their children to these institutions. Similar to our own public education system here in the United States, schools struggle with overcrowded classrooms, understaffed faculties, and teachers that are extremely underpaid. An excellent alternative for those who can afford the tuition is the well-funded and progressive private school system. These college-preparatory institutions offer both bilingual and strictly English-speaking curricula and generally follow the U.S. academic year.
