Quality Schools International was invited to open an international school in Belmopan, Belize, by the US State Department’s Office of Overseas Schools. QSI began to work with Belizean officials to attain licensure to open a school in the early summer of 2011. By the end of that summer, August 2011, QSI International School of Belize opened in its first location, Camalote village, outside Belmopan. The school operated in that location for its first four years. At that time, most of the students were children of US State Department employees.
In the summer of 2015, the school changed locations. Providing a safe, aesthetically pleasing facility within the capital city, Belmopan. The school moved to the University Heights location on Dean Crescent in August 2015. While in that location, the school is able to utilize the field in front of the school on the property. The facility boasts a playground, a courtyard, and three structures for classrooms. Several structures on the property have the capacity for second floors to be built upon them as the school continues to grow.
The school has worked deliberately in the last few years to integrate more with the local community. The school holds an international brunch and a fall or spring festival each year. The school presents a winter and spring program each year to the QSI Belize community. The school holds a Fun Run each spring for the community. The school is committed to community service through its service learning action plan with includes support of the Belmopan Humane Society.
