Monteverde friends School
K-12 Quaker education for local and international students in Monteverde, Costa Rica.
“Surrounded by Nature, Supported by Love”
Nestled in the cloud forest community of Monteverde, Costa Rica, the Monteverde Friends School was founded over 60 years ago by Quakers who left the United States in search of a country and community that supported their peaceful principles. Today, our school continues to promote the universal values of peace, love, and respect in the context of a challenging bilingual education and a sense of community.
A huge thank-you to our supporters whose donations help us offer financial aid and reach needed staffing and equipment levels.
"The natural beauty and sense of community at MFS are unparalleled. It is a place that will never truly leave you, and from which you will never stop learning. Plus, where else is gym class a hike through the rain forest, history class interrupted by monkeys, or a family formed among strangers in two languages?"
