About AMA:

Atitlán Multicultural Academy (AMA) is an accredited English language pre-K through twelfth grade school located in Panajachel, Guatemala, on the shores of beautiful Lake Atitlán. AMA is staffed by qualified teachers from the United States and other English-speaking countries, as well as from Guatemala. AMA's student body is very ethnically and economically diverse with many students from local Mayan villages and the surrounding Panajachel area; we believe this diversity makes AMA a fascinating and healthy community.

AMA offers small class sizes, a progressive curriculum with project-based constructivist learning, remedial programs in Math and English, SAT preparation, and AP courses. AMA students also have the opportunity to acquire practical skills in areas as diverse as photography, agriculture, computer animation, and art and graphic design.

AMA is a small, friendly school that provides a world-class, twenty-first century learning environment. Teachers provide individualized learning and support for all students. Graduating AMA seniors go on to attend universities in Guatemala, the United States, and Europe, or go on to work in the public and private sectors in Guatemala.
