On Friday the 25th of May the Abraham Lincoln School in La Romana will celebrate the opening of it’s annual art exhibit at the Altos de Chavón art gallery and everyone is invited to join us for the celebratory cocktail and admiration of all the excellent art work.

The annual art exhibit presented by the students of the Abraham Lincoln School and their hardworking teachers is in my opinion one of the best exhibits presented in the Altos de Chavón art gallery each year; the colorful exhibit fills the gallery from top to bottom and beams with the promise and talents of the next generation! What’s not to love!?

This year, as every year, the art exhibit will present artworks from every student in the school from the tiny ones in the Pre-Kinder classes, whose adorable self-portraits and animal paintings you will fall in love with, to the sophisticated paintings, sketches and sculptures created by the budding artists of the upper school classes taught by Mr Adams, a talented artist himself.

The celebratory inauguration cocktail will begin from 7pm – we look forward to seeing you there!

Last year the art exhibit was inaugurated on Friday the 3rd of June and was a really fun occasion! The kids excitement to see their art work on display in a real exhibit was infectious and to be honest the exhibit and the art work on display was as always exceptional!

About the Abraham Lincoln School

The Abraham Lincoln School, located within Central Romana, in the town of La Romana, is a private school for the children of employees of the Central Romana Corporation, but is also attended by other children who pay yearly tuition fees

The Abraham Lincoln School is an “English school” which means that classes are taught to a British standard curriculum and all the teachers are British, with the exception of course of the teachers who teach Spanish, Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and PE who are Dominican. This means that the majority of classes are taught in English and children command both English and Spanish.

Although the curriculum is British, grades are awarded according to the American GPA system and the pupils also take the “Dominican National Exams”, allowing pupils to continue their education at universities in the USA or within the Dominican Republic, as well as in Europe.

Classes go from pre-kinder to 12th grade.
