Mexican Education Equivalences in North America

So many families have chosen Arcos Bambu as the ideal home for their children. As a result, we’d like to inform you about the Mexican education equivalences and the pre-registration process for the 2018-2019 school year.

As every year, the Secretary of Education of Quintana Roo (SEQ) requests that parents pre-register their children at public and private schools.  Therefore, if your children go to public schools from Primary to Secondary levels, the online registration will take place from February 1 to February 15, 2018.

On the other hand, children attending private schools, the process can be done directly at the schools. However, in both cases it is important to have your children’s CURP and birth certificate. As a result, you will expedite the pre-registration process and ensure a place at the school of your choice.
