The Ministry of Education (Mined) has successfully transformed the facilities of the José Rubén Rivera Rivera School in the village of Las Mercedes, El Zacatal, Coatepeque. This significant upgrade was made possible through the implementation of the “Mi Nueva Escuela” (My New School) program.
More than 200 students, ranging from early childhood education to ninth grade, can now enjoy optimal learning conditions in their newly renovated school. The Minister of Education, José Mauricio Pineda, alongside other ministry officials, officially presented the refurbished school to the educational community.
“Creating an optimal learning environment is crucial for meaningful and successful education. Today, we deliver a renewed school that adds to the list of comprehensive interventions taking place nationwide,” stated Minister Pineda.
The comprehensive intervention at this educational institution is part of the educational reform initiated by President Nayib Bukele’s government. The reform aims to promote the holistic development of students in the country’s public education system.
The school’s renovation includes several notable improvements. The installation of porcelain floors, a thermally insulated roof, and fans in each classroom have significantly enhanced the learning atmosphere. Additionally, the school now boasts a renovated kitchen, new desks and furniture, an upgraded electrical system, new plumbing, modern sanitary facilities, and artificial turf in the playground areas.
“We are continually creating top-notch educational spaces,” emphasized the Minister of Education.
The investment in improving school infrastructure underscores the government’s commitment to providing quality education and creating an environment that fosters academic success. Through the “Mi Nueva Escuela” program, the Ministry of Education continues to prioritize the well-being and educational advancement of students across the nation.
