We are an American High School that also prepares students for the Costa Rican Bachillerato exam

Focusing on the American High School Diploma and a wide range of Advanced Placement (AP) courses, the curriculum also prepares students for the Costa Rican Bachillerato examinations in High School

Our Competitive Athletics Program

Physical Education classes are guided to improve the students’ overall fitness and develop gross motor skills, social and emotional well-being and healthy lifestyles. Students are encouraged to participate in sports activities and conduct themselves in a sportsman-like manner, take part and show responsibility towards the team, to excel physically and emotionally, learning the importance of self-respect, respect for teammates, friends and other teams.

Our robust after-school sports program includes Soccer, Basketball, Volleyball, Cross Country/Track and Swimming.

Our Arts Program

The performing arts are recognized as a vital part of school life and are supported by a broad section of the CDS community. In major productions, more than half of the student body has a part to play, whether it be onstage, or ushering, dancing or directing the spotlight.

Most students, by the time they graduate, have performed in one or more than one school play, AASCA Drama Festival, talent show or assembly performance.

Our Global Campus

Our Global Campus helps students explore the world, learn new skills and set their sights higher, developing a truly international perspective through outstanding online, in-school and worldwide experiences. From our in-school challenges to expeditions in Tanzania or Switzerland, we inspire your child to be ambitious in their learning.
