Blue Valley School welcomes applications from qualified teachers and staff twice a year due our yearly programs; one adapted to the Costa Rican schedule and another one adapted to the North American schedule. New teachers are invited to start either in mid-January or in mid-July.
Salaries are excellent by Costa Rican standards but only adequate compared to international standards. They are based on qualifications and years of experience in formal teaching, with extra credit given to English as the native language and instruction in formal English. Spanish as a native language is an official requisite for teaching the language and Costa Rican social studies. Being bilingual is not a requisite but it certainly helps when meetings and staff development workshops are held in either language. We try to hold them in both languages.
