The fastest-growing city in the Caribbean – Montego Bay – is to get its first private international school.
The team behind it are Lisa Lake, formerly of the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship, her husband, Yoni Epstein, who is in the business process outsourcing sector; Isiaa Madden, architect of Design HQ, merchants, Ranjeet and Madhu Mahtani; Mark McConnell of Orijin and his wife Jaime; Jill Stewart and Marc Rollins.
Led by philanthropist Adam Stewart, who has received the blessing of the woman behind Rose Hall’s SOS Children’s Village, Michele Rollins, plans for the Rose Hall Academy and International School were unveiled last Thursday, in the ballroom of the historic 18th century great house that carries the name of the community.
Launched in harmony with the Spanish Jamaica Foundation (SPJF), Stewart says the Spanish will be working on football programmes with Rose Hall Development company, which donated 13 acres of the Greenfield land, (about 1000 feet above sea level) overlooking the coastline of Montego Bay.
