A School that is part of ACECEN

Escuela Bautista Monte Horeb was born as a literacy initiative for adults in the community during the 80's.  In 1994 the literacy program was closed, and a preschool was started. Later the church opened a primary school as the result of requests from the community and parents.  The church saw this as an opportunity to serve the community.  The vision of the school is: to be a ministry recognized by its ongoing commitment to excellence and an emphasis on bringing the Kingdom of God through educational service.  The school desires to be a testimony to the community, to guide children to a biblical world view, in order that they will positively impact their community by living out biblical values and principles.

Monte Horeb is a governmentally accredited school, with 8 trained teachers serving preschool to grade 6.  The school is supported by the Monte Horeb Bautista Church, and is operationally self-sufficient.  Half of the students come from Christian homes, and the school works hard towards its mission of impacting these children as well as being a transformational influence on the hearts of the other students and their families.  The school is maintained well by the school community and supported by a janitor. 

In 2014 a renovation project was carried out with the help of EduDeo HANDS Teams. The renovation included the creation of two classrooms with a divider in the middle so the two classrooms can still be used as an auditorium. The school raised 20% of the funds required for this project.

The school has made some other changes in the facilities and to the staff in the last year, with the purpose of offering higher quality education and a better and safer environment for the students. The principal is very proud to say that one of the biggest changes is that all the teaching staff are now certified. All of them went to teaching school to become fully-certified teachers.

The principal is also proud to say,

"Here we have students from different religions, we have Jehovah witnesses, Mormons, Catholics, from the Assemblies of God, etc., and this is because we don´t teach about religion, we teach about God."
