The Jungle School is a thriving elementary, secondary, and vocational school that opened its doors in 1999. It is located on the Hearts in Action ranch in the jungle of San Andres, Peten, Guatemala, and has recently become a private school so that HIA can better teach and incorporate Christian values in their work with the children and the staff. In fact, TJS has a focus on the Creator and His creation, with emphasis on ecology and the environment, creativity, and cleanliness and order; all of which enhance the quality of education.
TJS is unique in this remote part of the world because it teaches computer science, English, art, music and band, Bible classes, and sports. It also has vocational training for teens. Students are actively involved in reforestation projects, starting micro-businesses, practicing organic gardening, and exercising their faith. There are worthwhile projects you can participate on as well as volunteer opportunities.
