Parent's Review of American School Foundation in Mexico City, Mexico

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

American School Foundation

In what town or city is this school located?

Mexico City

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

American School Foundation

What grade levels are represented at this school?

ECC to 12

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

It is manditory to pay for bus service but most of the children are driven in the morning an more take the bus home in the afternoon. There are sever traffic problems in the neighborhood as on the street there are 2 other private schools as well as a major American British Hospital.

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

Some of the facilites are worn and lack the kind of safety considerations we expect in the US. There is construction going on in the Upper School which affects the Lower and Middle school students. It appears quite dangerous with little thought as to how to manage this construction flow.

There are many afterschool programs to choose from as well as many extra curricular activities.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

Excellent curriculum for most. The population of the school is a higher percentage of Mexican students and there does appear to be a large adjustment for expat childern to "fit in". Cultural issues regarding behavior can make for an unhappy child. In the lower grades this may not be as much of a problem as it appears in the middle and upper schools.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

There is a parent teachers association. Realize that many of the students here are 3rd generation. Thus their parents are often alumni.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

Look at the other options before you decide. Consider location and what it is you want your child to learn. They will get a good education, but they might have culture shock as well.
