About Us

ABSS is an accredited school with a social mission, providing a high quality education for Honduran children. We believe that if students create, perform and experiment, or solve real-life problems, learning becomes concrete and enjoyable. Our teachers promote active, hands-on learning that reinforces the relevance of what they learn. At ABSS we have access to Zamorano's experienced faculty, state-of-the-art learning laboratories and athletics facilities. As an integral part of the Zamorano learning community, the students in ABSS develop an environmental awareness.

About Us

cinthia CanoThe “Escuelita”, as we affectionately call the Alison Bixby Stone School, is a not-for-profit school with a successful history, evidenced by professionals who today make up the working environment of Honduras and other countries.

The ABSS goes back 63 years ago, when a group of parents decided to open it for EAP – Zamorano’s employees’ children, since then and until today, ABSS has exceeded the expectations on learning, social and intellectual skills.

Since the school year begins, the walls recover their color, laughs take over the hallways, and windows perceive academic experiences of children that come to school aiming for knowledge. The school comes back to life!!!

Alison Bixby has graduated students from 6th grade for many years, and now it has taken the challenge to expand on its academic offer and the infrastructure. A new building for middle school will host for the first time students from 6th, 7th and 8th grade. A new moment in ABSS history.

The philosophy of teaching, learning by doing; inherited from the Agricultural University of Zamorano, student-centered, and independent learning is what makes us unique. Students learn in an open, healthy environment with high quality teachers, and committed moral values.

The Middle School program at the Alison Bixby Stone opened in 2015 as a response to a demand for high quality secondary education in the Yeguare Valley and surrounding communities.

A group of enthusiastic teachers and students started this challenge with many expectations and dreams; they were highly motivated to establish a model educational center in Honduras.  After three years of hard work and overcoming challenges, the Middle School has been consolidated and now is under way, and definitely becoming a source of academic excellence. We are looking forward to our first graduating class in June 2018.  Beginning on august 2018 we will open our high school level with the first tenth grade class in school history. We have full of projects to start with.

Best wishes
