About Costa Verde International School:

As an elementary school with grades from preschool through 9th, our aim is to produce healthy, happy and well-adjusted life-long learners. Our target is that each child acquires fluency in a second language and a profound understanding of the necessity for a “green” approach to living. To achieve this, Costa Verde International School is dedicated to a small student to teacher ratio and has focused education on the whole child in an environment designed to develop the talents and skills particular to each individual. School curriculum centers on ecology and respect for the environment. Students learn to analyze and solve problems, rather than simply memorizing facts.

About the CVIS Scholarship Program:

CVIS is the only bilingual, green school in the state of Nayarit and one of only a handful in the entire country of Mexico. Approximately half of our students rely on these scholarship programs to attend. The founders of Costa Verde International School have insisted on raising the bar for how much a school can give to its local community. The scholarship program, which is funded largely by charity events such as these, is designed to provide increased access for local children who are in need of financial assistance, thereby creating a more diverse student population and a more complete learning environment.
