The academic faculty is made up of teachers in the United States, or other English speaking countries, plus teachers educated in Honduras. Native speakers of English are assigned classes where English is the language of instruction, and native speakers of Spanish, classes requiring Spanish as the language of instruction. Teachers who are bilingual may be asked to use either English or Spanish for specific subjects, and only in rare cases--as in kindergarten-- a teacher may be expected to use both English and Spanish in the same class. 
Teachers receive a salary that affords comfortable living relative to the Honduran economy and social structure, plus a free modern apartment, airfare to Honduras and other benefits.
Classes are relatively small--approximately 20 students-- which aids classroom control and allows for a degree of individual attention. Teachers are encouraged to be innovative and utilize their creative talent in developing lessons. Textbooks in English are the same as used in schools in the United States.
The faculty and staff are quite congenial and many lasting friendships occur among North American, British, Canadian and Honduran personnel.

The student body (approximately 300 students) is drawn primarily from middle-class business and professional families, as well as some students on scholarship who have displayed talent and potential but whose families may have limited resources. Parents show interest in their children's schooling and can be called upon by teachers to help children reach academic goals. The school relies economically upon tuitions and other fees paid by parents.
