Playa del Carmen, Q.R. – Solidarity is set to build two new public schools with a total of 28 classrooms to meet current infrastructure demands.
The preschool and primary school will be constructed in the areas of Villas del Carmen by the real estate company, Cadu, says Pastrana Haydee Sanchez, representative of the Ministry of Education in Quintana Roo. She says Cadu is the same company to build Villas del Sol where the current lack-of-classroom problem is.
“We are talking about a garden in Villas del Carmen with six classrooms and a primary school with four classrooms,” she said.
So far the city has not planned additional schools, but some existing schools will grow as is the case of Luz Maria Salette Secondary School. The school will see the addition of six lecture halls, an electrical workshop and three teaching rooms for independent primary levels, for both fractionations of Villas Sun.
Vicente Guerrero Secondary School, Andrés Quintana Roo Primary and Jose Lopez Esquivel will all see an additional teaching classroom added, while Ha Nicte Secondary of the colony will have three rooms and a graphic design workshop included in their expansion.
Gabriel García Márquez Secondary School in the Smiths colony will have five classrooms and a workshop on tourism, while the Mission del Carmen and Rene Fajardo Ephraim will recieve two lounges and a workshop on management accounting. Other secondary schools of Tzuc Antonio Esparza, Puerto Aventuras will get two lecture halls.
Haydee Sanchez said that the official number of students entering these schools is expected during the first week of July. Numbers show that at the start of the 2014-15 school year, 34,200 students were registered to enter the basic levels in the public school systems, which is an increase of more than 4,000 from the previous year.
