Mexico City - School Report Question and Answers
Are there academic requirements such as trips or other activities that cost money in addition to school fees?
Trips are included but activities are a separate fee that you must pay in person at the school. - May 2016
YES!! There is a residential trip for grades J2 or J3 and up. They are several hundred dollars and students are expected to attend. They are camps at various haciendas around Mexico. They are safe and well planned and orchestrated however not all families can afford this I would guess. My kids have gone for several years and love them. Also: UNIFORMS are very costly!! We have been able to find similar cheaper slacks in the USA instead of the expensive school pants. - Jan 2016
There is a yearly excursion at a fee of about US$500. There is no parent orientation/presentation before the trip and the expectation, clearly and repeatedly stated, is that all students attend. My child loved the experience but it is only later that I learned from her that there was a shooting range available to the children. While I have nothing against firearms in a safe controlled environment, I think the parents should have been at least advised of this. - Jun 2014
