About Puntacana International School

Grupo Puntacana was set up over 40 years ago with a vision of creating a tourism and lifestyle destination with the desire for sustainable tourism and social responsibility towards the surrounding local community as it's core values. Much of this vision has been achieved; the company has won many prizes and awards for its pioneering environmental projects and principles. It has also invested in the community through infrastructural improvements and setting up health and educational facilities.

As part of this vision, it became obvious in the mid 1990s that there was a need for quality education in the area that would cater to both the local Dominican population and also the rapidly expanding national and foreign community working in the tourist industry and related businesses. Puntacana International School opened in 2000 with just several grades and has since expanded to what it is today.

We now have over 20 nationalities represented in our student body of over 500 students ranging from Toddler 1 up to 12th Grade level. Our teachers are from the Dominican Republic and also from other countries around the world, delivering a truly international experience for our students.

Puntacana International School is an educational institution recognized by the Dominican Ministry of Education (MINERD). The school follows the official programs of MINERD in the Spanish curriculum; and in English following the U.S. Common Core State Standards meeting the curricular levels for international schools. The school is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and The Council of International Schools (CIS).
