Parent's Review of Colegio Westhill in Mexico City, Mexico

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

Colegio Westhill

In what town or city is this school located?

Mexico City

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

Bilingual English-Spanish

What grade levels are represented at this school?

PreK-6

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

Car, some bus

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

The school is housed in an old mansion which has been modernized for use as a school. The classes are small (most no more than 10 or 12 students), there are limited after school activities and no late bus service. The school is situated on a quiet residential neighborhood.

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?

All of the teachers speak English, about half are native speakers. They have given him support with Spanish classes (Spanish as a Second Language), and because the class sizes are small he gets alot of individual attention.

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

There is a PTA but I do not know how active it is. There are various activities on the weekend and also during the week for parents (Westhill Day, Art Auction, etc.)

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

We looked at a lot of schools and chose Westhill even over the American School Foundation. The ASF seemed to us to be too big, not very caring, not as intimate with the students. If your children will only be in Mexico for the primary grade years I would recommend you stick with a smaller school like Westhill.
