Guatemala joined UNESCO on January 2, 1950. The UNESCO Office in Guatemala was founded in 1996.

The 2005 edition of the Education for All Global Monitoring Report indicates that the country has undertaken major efforts to improve its educational services through a series of programmes based on open learning and drawing heavily on research. Alongside its extensive experience in the country and its broad programme of cooperation, UNESCO also supports Guatemala’s New Unitary School.

As of September 2006, Guatemala has 18 schools participating in the UNESCO’s Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet).
