Mission

Mission Statement: At Ambergris Caye Elementary School we strive to provide the opportunities to develop qualities of greatness in each individual child. Thereby, affecting character development and expanding the minds of our young. In turn, this will have an auspicious effect on our developing community. We achieve these goals through developing a learning environment conducive to learning by providing a low student to teacher ratio. Our classrooms each have less than 15 students at any given point in time. Our teachers have the time to spend with each child to ensure they are learning and developing according to the standards set by our organization.

Programs

Currently, we have a scholarship program which reaches out to the local community providing scholarships to those children who show academic potential and also have a financial need. We work with the parents and the children in these "at risk" families to help develop the skills necessary to make the child successful in their academic endeavors. Additionally, we look at girls who show academic promise. The Central American culture in many cases lends itself to girls being cut from the educational process sooner than boys when finances become an issue. Education is the primary means with which to break this cycle in our local society. Often, these children come from homes where there is a single mother trying to raise her children in this very difficult economic circumstances. We also try to work with these mothers and/or fathers to help them develop a skill set that will provide their children with the tools and the environment to foster successful learning in the home as well. Beginning next September 2013, we would like to expand our program to include a "beginners program'. By establishing this program we will be able to intervene at a younger age establishing a sound foundation for learning and improving the readiness for our Infant I (or Kindergarten) program. At Ambergris Caye Elementary School we subscribe to the philosophy: Children are the future and education is the means to a successful future.
