cultural and social context

The site is located in Montrouis, Haiti a few hundred feet from the beach. The water is visible from the top floors of the corner building. The school is naturally ventilated, with an East-to-West air movement. There is a 5 meter grade change from the entrance of the site (elevation +0) to the back, where the latrines are located (elevation +5). The site is located in the midst of a small community and has students who travel up to 15 km to school each day. When the school was constructed, it attracted the settlement that it sits within and continues to be a major component of the social structure in the community. There is a water pump on site but no potable water. The site is situated about 50 meters from the main road and is accessed by means of a narrow, unsurfaced road. It is assumed most of the children will approach the school on-foot using this road.
