Our Journey

Macris School is a private, bilingual, independent, Catholic school in Tegucigalpa. Initially established as a pre-school in 1975,  a new stage was set forth by opening the elementary school in 1985, which began with 64 students and four teachers.  High school started operating in the year 1990.

Presently, there are over 1,100 students enrolled in pre-school through twelfth grade, and the school faculty has grown up to over 80 teachers along with teacher aides. Proudly, the school has graduated over 20 classes and  already has seen the success of its students who obtain their college degrees in national and international colleges and universities.  Many of them have also finished their master’s degree, doctorates, and have returned to their alma mater as teachers, staff, and even parents.

The current elementary and high school location was established in January of 1996 and is comprised of a 23 acre campus.
