Mexico City - School Report Question and Answers

Maintenance of appropriately high standards for all students:

C - May 2016

A-. Our kids are challenged academically and are doing very well. They test the secondary students and if they are falling behind have a chance to maintain their level, for example in Math especially, but if they are having trouble they may be dropped to the lower math class or bumped up to the extended or advanced class. The primary kids have interesting units of inquiry in which they do hands on projects and studies which include trips. - Jan 2016

F - Academic standards are low. My child has never written more than a paragraph of text all year. My child has been taught little to nothing regarding the writing process. Reading is not taught and students in J4 read books whole class. My child read a book during math lessons due to boredom and was academically unchallenged. There seems to be no academic standards whatsoever. The school is tossing out the IB curriculum in the elementary school and bringing in the IPC program which is similarly deficient in core academic subjects. The school views elementary education as a holding pattern. "Real learning" occurs in middle and upper school. - Jun 2014
