From Yucatan Living is a fantastic post that talks about the schooling situation in Mexico– how it differs from America and the expat’s experience of investigating the situation firsthand for their 16-year old (at the time) daughter.

The list includes 15+ schools in Merida, Mexico and includes information on: phone number, location, address, principal, English speaking contact, schooling levels, number of teachers, number of students, cost (2008-2009), duration of the school year, and anything else the expats may have liked about the particular school such as the amount of time spent teaching in Spanish and English.

The post and the site is a great resource for expats moving to Merida.
