I've recently returned from a wonderful vacation and am planning another month or two this summer to actually experience "living" rather than vacationing on Ambergris Caye.

I've heard secondhand that there may be a group of parents who homeschool collectively. Can anyone confirm this and perhaps provide more information? Thanks!

What ages are your children? The Island Academy is a very good school. Ohterwise, I don't know about home schooling.

Sounds like an ideal way to spend the summer!

Good luck!

Many of us homeschool here. I don't know about a collective effort but most know each other and a few get together each day to study.

A fish on my fly is worth two swimming by.

My son is 12 years old, will be in 7th grade in the fall.

If possible, I would like him to meet some kids his age while we are there. Anyone have any 12 year olds? We will be staying a bit past Journey's End.

How high do the schools go? I thought I may have read 8th grade?

Thanks for the replies!
