We are excited to share with you that there are big and positive changes happening within the Makarios School. Currently, the Makarios School is moving towards the process of accreditation according to the regulations under the Dominican Ministry of Education. We have made the decision to move in this direction because we are confident that it is the best decision for our students and the future students of Makarios. To be an accredited school will help ensure that the education of our students is acknowledged by the Dominican government and other academic institutions within the Dominican Republic. This process is a big step for the Makarios School, from the adoption of a new curriculum to the rearrangement of our students in relation to the public school rosters (many of our students attend the Makarios School in the morning and then public school in the afternoon). We thank the Lord for His guidance during this time.
In addition, we are thankful for our new school house located next door! Our fifth grade students are beyond excited as well and it has won the title of the fifth grade casita (little house in Spanish). The history of Makarios is truly humbling and we know that all is by the grace of His hands. We are blessed.
