Caribbean School was founded in October 1954 to meet the need for a quality English-speaking educational institution in the area of Ponce. It was first established at the United Evangelical Church of Puerto Rico. In 1956 the school was moved to a farm house property belonging to the Catholic University. By 1971, it began its operations at its present location in La Rambla.
After more than fifty years, Caribbean School has been able to maintain its philosophy and mission of providing a strong academic program and co-curricular activities. The Caribbean School is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (PK-12) and The Department of Education of Puerto Rico (K-12).
Academic excellence and Caribbean School are synonymous.
Caribbean School is an English immersion, college preparatory school which provides students with a structured and challenging academic program that develops independent learners and creative thinkers who become successful, caring and global ethical citizens.
Caribbean School prepares and graduates responsible and productive citizens with strong character traits, critical thinking, and academic skills by providing a rigorous, dynamic, and comprehensive curriculum. In partnership with the community, family, faculty, and staff we inspire and instill in our students the values of leadership, diversity, fairness, and service to society.
Our commitment to these beliefs guides all that we do in strengthening life-long learning skills for our students and creating bonds within our Panther community.
