Mopan Technical High School is perched on the easternmost side of Benque Viejo in the Hills of Promise Area. This area was within the confines of the village of San Jose Succotz and, in consequence, belonged to the jurisdiction of San Jose Succotz. However, in 1993 the borders of Benque Viejo and San Jose Succotz were re-demarcated by Political Officer, Guillermo Valdez, resulting in the expansion of Benque Viejo and the area of Mopan Technical High School falling within the borders of Benque Viejo.
The present student population has grown to almost six hundred. The school is administered under the Ministry of Education, the Board of Management, a Principal, one Vice-Principal and a faculty of thirty-five. Support staff includes a bursar, a secretary, an office assistant, a clerk, a caretaker, two wardens, three watchmen, a cleaner and one agriculture caretaker. We have expanded the curriculum to include Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Principles of Business, Principles of Accounting, Economics, Office Administration, Social Studies, Information Technology and English “B” at the CXC level.
Mopan Technical was the first high school in Belize to enter candidates and obtain passes in CXC Agriculture (Double and Single Award). We were also the first high school in the country to place a home page on the Internet and to computerize all our records.
