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 1,000 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 had by this time 17 graduating classes and we have already seen the success of the students who obtain their college degrees in Honduran, American, and other international universities. Many of them have also finished their master’s degree.
The current elementary and high school location was established in January of 1996 and is comprised of a 23 acre campus. The facilities include an administration building, media center, chapel, elementary building, high school building, library, six basketball courts, two volleyball courts, two computer labs, two multipurpose gymnasiums, and one soccer field.
The name of the school has a special meaning, it unites the first letters of Mary and Christ in the Spanish language: Maria y Cristo. Our school symbol is made of the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet, Alpha and Omega, and to the right of these letters, there is a cross. The meaning of our emblem is ¨Beginning and Ending in Christ¨.
