Escuela del Mundo started out as an iniciative by various families looking for a quaility education for their children in a rural area. The name originates from our experience the first year of operation in which families, teachers, and students were from an array of nationalites and cultures so different that only one name fit, Escuela del Mundo (School of the World). Our name also represents our intention to prepare the children for the world in which we live.
Escuela del Mundo was first started in Sayulita in the homes of the families who began the project. From there once student numbers increased it was relocated to a three bedroom house in San Pancho. Thanks to a small but enthusiastic group of parents with devotion and volunteer work they were able to succeed in establishing the project.
After several years of hard work from the teaching staff and parent volunteers Escuela del Mundo is starting to live with the promise of its name, and includes students from Latin America , Europe, Canada and the United States. Local Mexican children from the towns of San Pancho, Bucerias, Sayulita and Lo de Marcos represent half of the student population.
