Are other schools available to expatriates in this city? Why did you choose this particular school?

Yes, American School, Thomas Jefferson and Lincoln. Canadian School is the only school without the pre-first system. - May 4, 2017
I switched my son to this school during our tour here because my son needed a larger, institutional environment. In particular, I believed the math would be superior to his previous school and I found that to be the case. The school is implementing the Singapore Math curriculum. - Feb 5, 2016
After visiting 4 schools upon arrival, I decided on this school for a variety of reasons including small class size, American curriculum, welcoming environment/smaller school size, and was satisfied that the religious expression here was positive rather than judgmental/intolerant in nature. - Feb 3, 2016
We chose to homeschool in Guadalajara because we weren't satisfied with the other high school options. There are many good things about the other schools, but since the Lincoln School has trouble teaching all its core high school subjects in English, and since the American school is not diverse at all, we thought homeschooling would be a better option. Also, it is a major advantage for us to homeschool through high school instead of putting our children in three different high schools. - May 29, 2014
It was the school sponsored by the U.S. Consulate. - May 15, 2014
We contacted ASFG first but weren't happy with our initial interaction with them, especially regarding our high school age children. We waited to decide on the school until we arrived in Guadalajara and were pleased with the Canadian School for our youngest son when we visited it. - May 13, 2014
Seemed the best fit for our kids. - May 8, 2014
Recommended by the Consulate. - Apr 26, 2014
