Well-Rounded Education

At Journey School of Costa Rica, we are committed to providing a well-rounded education that fosters the growth and development of our students in all aspects of life. We believe in the power of diverse interests and activities to shape young minds and prepare them for a dynamic world. As part of our commitment to holistic education, we embrace skateboarding as an essential component that can be chosen as part of the curriculum. We at Journey recognize its incredible benefits to our students, so we included a 5-ft. (1.5 m)bowl and a 3.5-ft. (1.06m) tall mini-ramp into our campus design.
Skateboarding is not just a sport or a recreational activity but a way of life that cultivates essential skills and values. Here are some of the reasons why skateboarding is so unique and why we wholeheartedly support its inclusion in our educational program:

Creativity and Self-Expression

Skateboarding encourages our students to think outside the box, explore their creativity, and express themselves uniquely. Students are empowered to embrace their individuality and develop their artistic voices from mastering tricks to designing their skateboard graphics in art class.

Physical Fitness and Well-being

Skateboarding is a physically demanding activity that promotes an active and healthy lifestyle. It strengthens muscles and improves balance, coordination, and agility. By engaging in skateboarding, our students learn the importance of maintaining physical well-being, leading to lifelong habits of exercise and self-care.

Resilience and Perseverance

Skateboarding is a sport that requires resilience and perseverance. Our students learn to embrace challenges, overcome failures, and persist in the face of adversity. Through falls and setbacks, they develop grit, determination, and the ability to pick themselves up and keep trying until they succeed.

Collaboration and Community

Skateboarding is inherently social and fosters a sense of community. Students learn to collaborate, share knowledge, and support each other while navigating the skatepark together. By participating, our students develop essential social skills, empathy, and an appreciation for diversity and inclusivity.

Critical Thinking and
Problem Solving

Skateboarding demands quick thinking, adaptability, and problem-solving skills. Students must analyze their surroundings, assess risks, and make split-second decisions. These cognitive abilities translate beyond the skatepark, equipping our students with valuable skills applicable to various aspects of their lives.

Environmental Awareness

Skateboarding connects students with the natural environment. As they explore outdoor spaces, they develop an appreciation for nature, sustainability, and the importance of preserving our planet. Through skateboarding, our students become advocates for environmental stewardship and learn to cherish and protect their surroundings.

At Journey School, we recognize its immense value as a transformative and enriching experience for our students. We are dedicated to providing a safe and supportive environment that nurtures their skateboarding passion while simultaneously fostering academic and personal growth. By embracing skateboarding, we aim to empower our students with the skills, values, and mindset needed to thrive in an ever-changing world.
Skateboarding is more than just a pastime; it is a powerful tool that empowers young minds to explore their potential, cultivate resilience, and embrace their unique identities. Journey School is proud to champion skateboarding as an integral part of our commitment to holistic education, shaping well-rounded individuals who are prepared to embark on their personal journeys with confidence and purpose.
