About Caribbean School Inc.
The Caribbean School is a private, English language, college preparatory school located in the coastal city of Ponce in southern Puerto Rico. All of our classes are taught in the English language, with the obvious exception of Spanish. Most of our students speak Spanish at home, but are just as comfortable speaking in English. Spanish at Caribbean School is taught as a second “first” language. In this way the school fosters an appreciation of Puerto Rican heritage and serves as a bridge between cultures.
