Parent's Review of Weshill Institute in Mexico City , Mexico

Weshill Institute

In what town or city is this school located?

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

American

What grade levels are represented at this school?

K-12

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

Bus. There is a bus fee per semester.

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

The Santa Fe campus is big, with comfortable classrooms and basketball, volleyball, soccer courts and olympic pool. They also have extracurricular tutoring and sports, both with extra costs.

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?

My child was provided English as Second Language classes that helped her in fifth grade, but are still provided through all grades. They were very welcoming despite her difficulties learning both Spanish and English.

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

The have PTA, but it is more active in elementary school due to more events than in Middle and High School.

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

I would recommend this school for people looking to enroll their child in Elementary school with no knowledge of English/Spanish due to the classes they give as a resource improve the language. My child was very understanding of both English and Spanish after 6 months even though she had no prior skills in neither language. The kids changing from 5-6 grade are very well instructed, with the school even offering a day where the kids were able to see the classes and meet the teachers before the actual start of school. I personally dislike the buildings due to the amount of stairs (the school counts with classes in the 5 floors for all grades.) The technology teacher doesn't seem to be very keen on the matter, with some students knowing more than her. My daughter complains about lack of creativity coming from that teacher. During the end of the bimesters, the kids are left with both projects and exams and only have thanksgiving before semestral exams to study. The current principal is not as pleasant as I would like her to be, showing very rude behavior to both parents and students and having her own "favorites" amongst teachers. (I heard there will be a change of principals in the 2015-2016 year, and I expect them to make some changes in staff. The school's nurse is always absent, and so the elementary school nurse has to take care of the middle and high school buildings too. She is very caring for the kids and my daughter was well taken care of when I took some time to pick her up. She doesn't give your child medicine without written permission or phone call (which I thought was great since some nurses give advil or tylenol to girls due to cramps) Westhill is a good option if you're okay with changing schools before your kid reaches high school since that area is very poorly handled.
