Welcome and thank you for your interest in Macris School!
Since 1985 Macris School has worked diligently to provide its students with an exceptional education that prepares them to be leaders. Starting with a kindergarten and slowly building the school grade by grade, Macris has earned the reputation of academic excellence and has demonstrated that students graduate well-prepared to attend college and become successful young adults.
Macris is a college preparatory academic program, grades 1-12. Students graduate with a Título de Bachillerato Internacional en Ciencia y Humanidades and a High School Diploma. All students take the PSAT exam in their junior year to prepare them for the SAT exam required for U.S. and other international universities. Students also have the opportunity to study several Advanced Placement (AP) courses beginning in 10th grade. These are but a few examples of the vigorous education that prepares students well for higher education.
Imagine for a moment that your child is graduating from Macris. After 12 years of a Macris education he/she will have earned a high school degree and will be preparing for the next step of his/her life, higher education. Macris will have opened the door of possibilities for your child to attend a university of his/her choice, either nationally or internationally, and very possibly with a scholarship to make the education affordable. Macris holds a strong running record of these student achievements.
We appreciate your interest in our school and hope you will consider us for your child’s future.
Traditionally, students apply between March and July for the following school year, which begins in August. We accept students during the school year depending on the particular circumstance (international families or local families that move between cities). Additionally, students in Honduras that wish to move from schools that follow the traditional Honduran school calendar year (February to November), are welcome to join us when their school year ends. This helps the students adapt to Macris’ rigorous curriculum and in some cases, to the English language.
Macris is a private, tuition-based school that provides an exceptional education at a very affordable cost. Tuition rates are determined each year. For more information about tuition, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Yes. Macris School is accredited nationally by the Honduran Secretary of Education and internationally by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
We will work with students who don’t speak English or Spanish. We provide some second language support, but depending on the grade level and language proficiency level, we might recommend a tutor.
There is a bus service available for an additional cost, which provides transportation to and from school during regular school hours. In high school there is an extracurricular bus service that drops students off at two locations in the city; there is no cost for the extracurricular bus.
Macris offers a variety of extracurricular activities including clubs and athletics. With the exception of outside programs such as French with the French Alliance in Tegucigalpa, there is no charge for activities. However, if there are competitions, uniforms for teams, or travel for events, parents do cover those fees.
Yes. Macris has a uniform policy that includes a daily uniform and a physical education uniform. More information is available upon enrollment.
There are many schools that charge an initiation fee, but here at Macris School, we do not charge one. The goal always has been to make this school accessible to more families.
We offer two diplomas, the local Honduran one and a U.S. diploma. The recommendation is for students to obtain both diplomas especially if they wish to study in Honduras or other countries in Latin America. Nonetheless, for some of our international families who might stay in Honduras for a limited number of years, families can decide to enroll them in the U.S. diploma program only.
