Welcome to La Escuela de la Montaña/The Mountain School

La Escuela de la Montaña is a Spanish language school in Guatemala that gives students the opportunity to experience rural life while they study. During your time here you will receive quality Spanish language instruction while developing an awareness of the social, political and economic realities of Guatemala and Central America. Students at La Escuela de la Montaña stay in the main school building and take their meals with local Mayan families.

For most students, the experience at The Mountain School is one they will never forget. The relationships formed with families and teachers can last a lifetime. Many students return again and again to visit their Guatemalan "family."

Your stay at La Escuela de la Montaña benefits the local communities by providing them work at a fair wage. The school donates a small portion of your tuition towards our community projects, which depend on donations from former students and friends of the school.

          The school occupies 2-1/2 acres of what was once a small coffee plantation (finca). The grounds are lushly planted with flowers and trees.
