What is the availability of international schools? What has been your general experience with them, if any?

There are no international schools here. We have folks with elementary-aged kids, but they need to be comfortable in Spanish (or willing to learn, which they will do in one year). - Aug 2015

There are no schools that are meet U.S. standards in Hermosillo and none are of the caliber those used to international schools would expect. Parents often complain of poor communication with teachers and school administration and students who are not native Spanish speakers have had a hard time adjusting, despite regular after school Spanish tutoring. While these issues are frustrating for those of us with preschool and primary school aged children, those with children in middle and high school should think very carefully about moving to this city. - Dec 2009
