San Salvador - School Report Question and Answers

Please describe some of your child's/children's highlights and challenges during their time at this school.

My kids have had a very hard time as they’ve been either too advanced, or too far behind. You need to be part of the herd if you’re going to get an education here, or you’ll be left by the wayside. Socially and academically it has been a really bad experience for us. - Mar 2022

For the preschool kids, they have a lunch break and get to eat and then play. This typically means that they eat one thing and then go play. I found my younger child would essentially skip lunch. The preschool is Montessori-esque. Lots of play to learn and develop hand coordination. The classrooms are nice and open to the environment. They have a large area for playing. I love the British curriculum for teaching reading. The teachers a loving and care for the kids. The school is well staffed. Primary kids are not burdened with homework. Challenges are the lack of expat community. El Salvador does not have a lot of expats which means the expat ratio at all schools is very low. It also means that most of the students are learning English all through primary school. - Sep 2020
