Schools in spanish speaking countries
School in Spain
the school day in most primary schools in spain lasts from 9:00-12:00 and 3:00-5:00. There is normally a two to three hour break in the middle of the day for lunch and a siesta. Many students go home for these breaks, but others with working parents may stay at school.
School In Spain
the academic school year in Spain runs from mid-September to mid-June and is made up of 3 terms, each around 11 weeks long. The 1st term runs from September to December with a 2 week break for the christmas holidays. The spring term starts after the 6 of January festival and includes a two week spring break. The 3rd term finishes mid-june for summer.
School in Mexico
in Mexico, children attend preschool from the ages of 3 to 5, and upon completion they will enter a primary school. the third year of preschool is equivalent to kindergarten. elementary school is for 1st through 6th graders, and the school day normally lasts from 8-12 and 2-6. students from 7th -9th grade normally attend junior high
it is common for schools in a lot of spanish speaking countries to not have bus systems and transportation to and from school, so it is the responsibility of the students and their parents to get to school.
School in mexico
high school is not mandatory in mexico. most preparatorias are found only in urban areas making education costly to those from rural areas. many students drop out of school because families need them to work in order to help support them. school days are shorter and it is common for some kids to work in the mornings and attend school in the afternoon.
School in central america
this region has made great progress in educational coverage; a lot of children attend primary school and have access to secondary education.
Private school vs. public school
many spanish speaking schools have gone through profound changes in the last decade and standards have risen significantly. however, public schools are still not educating at the level that private schools do. however public schools are still good for students.
Private school vs. public school
one benefit of the private school system would be that its considerably less expensive. parents only have to pay for books and occasionally a small yearly fee. private schools however normally have higher qualified teachers and you will often find a more bilingual education process.
Private school vs. public school
one major issue with private schools however, is that many people believe children miss out on the authentic spanish experience; students may leave without ever fully grasping their language or culture.
