Lincoln School to Unveil New Campus

March 9, 2007

The LincolnSchool, a private preschool and K-12 facility now located in Moravia, northeast of San José, is packing up today as it begins a move to its new campus in the nearby suburb of Santo Domingo de Heredia.

Luisana Pacheco, the school’s coordinator for admissions and development, said the school decided to create a new campus so students can have the best learning experience possible.

“The idea isn’t to grow, but to give better opportunities and facilities to the students we have,” Pacheco told The Tico Times, adding that those 1,220 students have been given a week off as the school’s furniture and materials are moved from the old campus, Lincoln’s home for 53 years, to the Heredia campus a few kilometers away.

The facility is located in Santo Domingo’s Barrio El Socorro.

Classes will begin at the new campus March 19; an April 18 reception for President Oscar Arias and other dignitaries, as well as a school-wide festival April 28 for staff members, students and families, will officially inaugurate the new facility.

The campus, which Pacheco called “possibly the best facilities in all of Central America,” includes two libraries; a preschool building specially designed for Lincoln’s smallest students; an International Football Federation (FIFA)-regulation soccer field; two gymnasiums; and elementary and secondary buildings with science labs, music and art rooms, among other features.
