Family Network

CDS is proud of its vibrant parent community and makes special efforts to welcome families new to the school - and often to Costa Rica - and to keep existing families involved in school life.

New Families

The CDS Admissions Coordinator, Maria Fernanda Cardona is a key contact for new families and welcomes enquiries at any time.

The Parent Associations offers a warm welcome via our Buddy Families whereby existing CDS families act as ‘buddies’ to help new families settle into the school and wider community. If you would like a buddy and have not been contacted, email

New family welcome events

CDS provides a number of formal and informal opportunities for new parents to meet the school administration and other families:

Contact Maria Fernanda Cardona for further information; and take a look at the wide range of community events offered throughout the year.

Parent Representatives

Parents volunteer as Class or Divisional Representatives and on the PA Executive Committee. They are an excellent source of formal and informal information, do contact them for any questions you may have.

Yellow Pages

Parents new and old can benefit from the wisdom of others compiled over the years in our list of useful information and contacts in San Jose and beyond.
