Teachers with Flair & Understanding

School Supplies 2017/18

Below you’ll find a list of what students in each grade will need next year for their classes at Costa Rica International Academy.

We ask that students bring all of their supplies on their first day of school. First through fifth grade students may keep their supplies in their classrooms. Sixth through 8th grade students will have a locker and will need to bring the appropriate supplies to each of their classes.

Please also ensure that your children have access to school supplies at home in order to complete homework assignments (pencils, pens, markers, crayons, scissors, glue, etc.)
