Feb.8 Samara Pacific School, which has been operating a preschool and kindergarten for four years, started providing elementary level classes. They inaugurated a new building last Sunday,12 Feb. 2012.
Currently with 23 students throughout the school, 8 of them in elementary grades, the school offers scholarships, in an effort to create a multi-cultural and diverse student body. The philosophy of the school stresses environmental protection and respect for nature, as well as instilling ethical values and emotional intelligence. Samara Pacific School is fully bilingual, with regular curriculum in both English and Spanish.
As a non-profit business, Samara Pacific School has depended greatly on the support of the community to complete construction of the new facility. Many of the local contributors are thanked on board in front of the school.
