San Pedro High School is a private and government aided secondary school located in San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye, Belize, Central America. The school was founded in 1971 at a time when only few students could afford to attend high school in Belize City on the mainland and was established to break away from this pattern and provide secondary educational opportunity for a wider sector of the community.
