Are there academic requirements such as trips or other activities that cost money in addition to school fees?

Not required. However, there is a class trip for most grades where the children go away for a couple of nights. It was about US$500. - Feb 5, 2016
A few, but their cost is minimal. They even tried to refund me US$5 after a sleep away trip where the school didn't spend as much money as was anticipated. I found it incredible that they tried to give parents money back. Of course, I told them to keep it. - Feb 3, 2016
Some at the high school levels. My son was unable to take part in an excursion outside of Guadalajara since the security officer would not approve his participation due to security concerns. That's understandable but still limits what some kids can do. - May 15, 2014
No. - May 13, 2014
Yes, but you can get out of many of them. - May 8, 2014
Yes and there are many. - Apr 26, 2014
