Under the supervision of KANPE, an organization founded by Arcade Fire, the school in the community of Baille Tourible came to be incorporated into our network. The community has a strong musical influence from Arcade Fire, leading a walk into the community with orchestrated rara. It is closest to Thomonde in the Central Plateau and students can still take up to 45 minutes to walk to school. It takes a long, bumpy car ride up the mountain and past the Summits school of Bernaco to reach.
Access from Mirebalais: An hour or more by car, no walking
PRINCIPAL: Jean Ariel Isaac
SUPERVISOR: Dumel Jean Baptiste
