GSD International School Costa Rica endeavors to influence society through education

Juan Barrilero Contreras

GSD International School Costa Rica endeavors to influence society through education, by offering a unique education project that sets us apart from other institutions, enriching it with values such as tolerance, respect, solidarity, honesty, and critical thinking.

GSD International School Costa Rica is set in the La Guácima district, in the Alajuela quarter and province, 22 km west of central San José, and 10 km from the Juan Santamaría International Airport. Our state-of-the-art facilities were built in 2017 and spread over 30,000 m2. They feature classrooms and technology-equipped science laboratories, computing and robotics laboratories, a pool that is heated and covered, an artificial grass 11-a-side football pitch, a covered sports center, auditorium, green areas, etc.

Included in our education project is a healthy, balanced food service that is supervised by dietitians and prepared on site by professional chefs, who cook the food we serve daily at our institution for teachers and students.
