San Pedro Roman Catholic Primary School is the only public school on the island of Ambergris Caye. Most of the public schools in Belize are affiliated with a church. Although we are a Catholic school we accept students of any denomination.
It is a standard Belizean school patterned after the British system of education. Students enroll at age 5 into Beginners (kindergarten) and continue through to Standard VI (the equivalent of 8th grade). The curriculum reflects our Caribbean/Central American location.
The present enrollment is approximately 900 students in 22 classrooms. We have many students from the neighbouring republics (El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, etc.) as well as from regions throughout the world.
The Government of Belize provides funding for teachers’ salaries and all other monies necessary to run the school are provided by generous donations from the community and visitors that have befriended our institution. As with any school, we rely heavily on contributions to provide a warm, educational environment for our students.
