Faro de Cabrera is best described as a small, home school co-op located in a coastal town on the northeast side of the Dominican Republic. It was founded by a group of parents who came together to develop a quality bilingual program that inspired creativity and valued social consciousness while meeting the standards of both the United States and Dominican Republic. We are steadily growing school with 64 students currently and approximately 100 for the year 2019/2020. However, our classes are not larger than15 students per class. Teachers have had great experiences here. Faro de Cabrera prides itself on educating the whole child. We are like a family and "walk the talk" in collaborating with students, Board members, teachers and parents who work hard to better our community. We have been very lucky in having wonderful teachers who value community service projects and making a difference. Many say their experience here has had an amazingly positive impact on their lives.
