Macris students graduate with a Bacillerato Internacional en Ciencias y Humanidades and a U.S. High School Diploma. The majority of courses are taught in English with the exception of some Honduran required courses, which are taught in Spanish.
Students can earn the U.S. President’s Award for outstanding academic achievement and excellent citizenship. Our students graduate from Macris equipped with the necessary skills, competencies, and content knowledge to excel in higher education.
Macris School teaches a dual program with courses required by the Honduran Secretary of Education and also content and skills based on U.S. curriculum standards such as the Common Core. Every year students take English, Spanish, Mathematics, Science, and Social Science courses. Starting in 10th grade, students can choose an elective of their choice with options from the social sciences, mathematics, and languages departments.
In 2019, Macris School and La Alianza Francesa signed a convention to build a partnership and bring the French language and culture to our school. In High School, students can opt to study French as an elective and the classes are taught by teachers certified and supervised by La Alianza Francesa. In Elementary School, students can learn French as an extracurricular activity. Additionally, La Alianza Francesa brings cultural productions and activities that enrich the whole school and expose our students to another language and culture.
Starting in middle school, students have access to Pre-AP math classes and from 10th-12th grade, they can choose from a variety of elective courses which include AP courses. Currently, we offer the following AP course:
Students are also encouraged to take independent AP courses and the school will organize the AP testing administration.
The College Board offers students the opportunity to earn a prestigious diploma if they take and pass 5 AP exams that span a variety of disciplines. Beatrix Chiuz, Class of 2020, is our first student to earn this diploma.
