The Real Estate Agency of Curacao tells: Schools on Curaçao

20 juni 2022

The Real Estate Agency on Curacao tells: On Curaçao you have several primary schools. The education system is broadly comparable to the system in the Netherlands. Your child can go on Curaçao to daycare, preschool, primary school and then to secondary school (VMBO, Havo/VWO). There is also a great International School for education in English.

Schools on Curacao start early, somewhere between 7:15 AM and 8:00 AM. Therefore, the children are free every afternoon, usually somewhere between 12.30 and 13.00. Apart from private schools, it is still quite common to go to school in uniform. This can be in prescribed clothing that can be bought through school, but often the requirements are a bit more flexible and the children wear jeans with a polo shirt with the logo of their school. Bring your children’s school reports with you and also a statement from the director/rector of the school stating that your child has attended classes there.
Because children in Curacao cannot safely cycle to school by bike, they are brought and picked up daily. That is why it is important to consider the location of your children’s school when looking for a home. As a real estate agent on Curacao we are happy to advise you about this.

Famous Schools on Curacao

Marnix School (Protestant Christian)

The Marnix School welcomes about 700 students every day. It is a Protestant Christian school. They believe it is important to teach children that there is a God who loves them.

Private schools

Pipita (in the district Jongbloed) is a small school with about 4 classes, and per class 2 groups. Because there are about 12 to 14 places per group (so an average of 20 to 25 children per class), the chance of getting a place is not very big. Every year a few children leave (back to the Netherlands), but you have to be lucky.
