International School is a Christian bilingual school located in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, serving many Honduran children and their families. As a teacher, you can explore life in Latin America as you grow spiritually, professionally, and form new and lasting relationships.
Academics are of high importance at International School. We follow a North American calendar of September to June. Our English curriculum use textbooks from North American publishers which are updated on a regular basis. As most of our 1,000 students are learning in their second language, we make an extra effort to offer extensive review sessions and after school programs to assist them in their learning. Our students are qualified to continue their education at universities and colleges, in the United States, Honduras, and other countries.
