Bear School

Separated from the nearest road by 20 minutes of dense jungle, Bear School is our smallest and most remote school.

Up until 2014, Bear School sat largely abandoned due to the lack of resources, funding and remote location at Phnom Kulen. Kulen Outreach reopened the school and built adequate teacher housing in July of 2014. Now over 90 children are receiving a proper and fair education.

While Bear School remains the smallest and most remote of our schools, the school’s energy rivals that of its older sibling, Popel School down the road. Bear School serves as the center and soul of the small village deep within the Jungle and also plays a fundamental role in Kulen Outreach’s success.
