Jake...is there a High School on Bonaire? Steve said he didnt think so....in that case where will your children go...to Curacao...??? is that like a commute..or do they stay the term and then come home.....We noticed alot of kids this trip that just seemed to be "hanging out' it is a shame if they don't have some kind of school for this age group....

Meryl, the windsurf guys go to a high school. I picked one of them up a few times after school so he could come sail.

There are different levels of higher ed in the Antilles. We do have "high school" here and also a higher level on Curacao. Many of our graduates go right from here to Curacao or Holland and attend schools that we would consider similar to Jr. colleges and to universities as well.

For Americans, the high school levels are very confusing. You get placed via testing. HAVO is like an Amercian College Prep. so if you pass you can go directly to university. There is another level above that which includes studies in Latin even.
