The Free High School for Adults of San Juan del Sur

Casa de Tierra is proudly collaborating with the non-profit organization Random Acts in the construction of a permanent Free High School for Adults in San Juan del Sur.

The Free High School for Adults is a grassroots non-profit organization that has found innovative ways to provide high-quality secondary and technical education to low-income and under-served students, and to ensure that this diverse group between the ages of 13 and 50 can earn their degree.

For the past 15 years, without a school of their own, the FHS had borrowed other classrooms throughout town so that students could continue their studies.  In 2015, the philanthropic organization Random Acts stepped in to build these students a school, so that rather than study in a spare classroom here, a borrowed space there, they could claim their seat in class, and stake their place in school. 

The Free High School has served hundreds of students, and as the population grows, the school aims to grow with it. With the construction of this new campus, they will have their own library, computer room, classrooms, and administrative rooms.

This educational institution serves as a symbol of sustainability and innovative design, featuring bamboo posts and beams, bamboo wall paneling, and creatively cut bamboo railings and wall divisions.
