Ecole Communautaire La Ruche
The neighboring national school wasn’t functioning and so two brothers from the community of Petit Fond, which translates roughly to mean, “down a little from the mountain,” founded the school. Now one serves as the principal, and he is dedicated in his mission to provide a quality education to all of the students at his school: although a misshapen wooden building partitioning classrooms by blackboards, there is a lakou of young musicians practicing guitar and a strong resolve for progress.
