The Cloud Forest School is a bilingual, progressive PreK--11th grade private school located in rural Monteverde, Costa Rica.

Ninety-five percent (95%) of our 200 students are Costa Rican, 5% are international students (generally from the US and Canada), and more than 70% of our local students receive deeply discounted tuition. Our staff of 38 is made up of half Costa Rican and half international professionals deeply dedicated to progressive, bi-lingual education. Our school year runs from Early August to June. For our 2017-2018 school year we are looking to hire an Environmental Education Coordinator to start in late July.
