About LIFE > Location
LIFE School is located on the shores of Lake Atitlán, considered one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. The lake region is in the Guatemalan highlands, where the indigenous culture remains strong. Most families in this region continue to speak Mayan languages (Kaqchikel and Tz’utujil) and wear traditional, hand-woven clothing. Panajachel is the gateway to Lake Atitlán, a center for local trade as well as regional tourism. More information about the region can be found here.
The school is in a secluded, quiet area close to the lake. All buildings are simple brick constructions with tin roofs. During recess, students play on the playground, the basketball court, the ping-pong table, or the large soccer field. We have a well-stocked library as well as a computer lab with eleven computers, wireless internet throughout the campus, and a media room with projection and stereo equipment. The slideshow below has pictures of the campus.
