Mexico City - School Report Question and Answers

Are the admissions and placement procedures clearly stated to prospective families, either on the school website or through other means of communication?

Yes, however, it seems they said whatever it took to get you in the door. - Oct 2020

B? Not really sure how this all works but all three of our kids got in without a problem. And even though our son was younger than the cutoff date, we were granted permission for him to continue on with the upper grade as he had already completed the previous grade at the previous post. We have heard where sometimes there is a family who doesn't get both kids in but this seems rare. There is always a Wait List and the headmaster is often telling us about this. Lots of kids who start off at the American school seem to transfer here after a term or two there or at least try to. Two different families I know transferred their kids to GG from other schools and were thrilled with the results. - Jan 2016

F - Not that I am aware. I had no idea my child was accepted until the day before school started when we sat down with the head of school for an interview and a placement test. - Jun 2014

C - Not clear and not always following your wishes. - Jul 2011
