PUEDO School on the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica is a private non-profit preschool and primary school. PUEDO was founded in 2015 to alleviate the socioeconomic and cultural gaps prevalent in a rural economy. Our community is struggling to find a balance between expanding expat communities and a dangerous acceptance of educational barriers by Costa Ricans. PUEDO School incorporates effective Place-Based Education (PBE) strategies while promoting cross-cultural competence in our unique multilingual, multinational community and incorporates inter-disciplinary project-based learning. PUEDO works with ASOBITICO and strives to become the first PYP IB school in Costa Rica.
