San Pedro High School is a private and government aided school founded in 1971 at a time when only 2 students from the island were attending high school in Belize City. The school was hence established to break away from this pattern and provide the opportunity for a wider sector of the community. It is the only high school on the island so far.
San Pedro High School started with 30 students and graduated 9 in its first graduation. Today the enrollment is 495 students with an average graduating class of 30 supported by 28 full time teachers and 6 other supporting staff.
