Timothy’s School began in 2013. It is one of four schools that is run by Church of God congregations in Paraguay. The school was named after Timothy Kurrle, the son of Norberto Kurrle who died tragically in a car crash.

Timothy’s school currently has childcare for ages 2-4, preschool, first, second, and third grades. They have over 70 students enrolled and they have continued to increase their enrollment from year to year. They employ 12 staff including a director, two counselors, one English teacher, and grade-level teachers and helpers.

One unique aspect of Timothy’s School is that it welcomes students with disabilities and special needs, making space for their unique learning capabilities. This is different from government-run schools in their area and it’s just one way the school is caring for the vulnerable of their community.
