Currently (2016) the student body consists of 261 young people between the ages of 5 and 20 who receive complete education in theoretical and practical subjects, instrumental courses, and ensembles. The educational process is conducted by 23 teachers specialized in the teaching and performance of various different symphonic instruments. The administrative support in coordination and management is provided by four functionaries, two counselors, two security personnel and one maintenance worker for a total staff of 32. The school includes 8 symphonic ensembles ranging from elementary to intermediate levels who maintain a high performance level. Since 2014 we are on the campus of the National University in the Brunca Region Offices in a new facility specially designed for musical education.
The educational strategy and learning which the school provides is characterized by having a constructive nature. The goal is to instill values such as discipline, respect, teamwork and honesty in young people through music, this gives students a positive venture into academic and professional environments as most who chose to obtain a higher education do so with outstanding admission grades in prestigious national and international universities. The possibility also exists that the students become music teachers thanks to an agreement with the Ministry of Public Education who accredits the school as a technical means in music.
Over the course of time, the school has become a prestigious establishment on a local and national level. This is the result of numerous concerts, recitals and development of workshops in various rural communities in the Brunca Region.
In our school we educate our students on a high level in music performance as well as in associated music courses. This allows us to conduct notable performances and offer concerts for personal entertainment as well as elevate the cultural spirit of our population. In this way we have provoked the decentralization of the systematic music culture that up until now has been reserved for the inhabitants of Costa Rica’s Central Valley.
