Homeschooling in Mexico Help

by Mel
(Guadalajara, Mexico)

Do you have experience with homeschooling in Mexico? Your advice is needed!

Hello. I homeschooled my 5 year old girls in California last year and was very pleased with their progress. We moved to Mexico for two years, however, and hope to be returning to the U.S. (state unknown). I cannot seem to find out if I need to file anything in Mexico to prove my kids are actually in school. Also, should I simply create a transcript for the girls upon our return? I do plan to homeschool them when we are back in the U.S.

Thank you for your help!

Hi Mel,
I believe you do need to register through the local school/district where you live in Mexico. From what others have shared and from what I've read, homeschooling is legal and you shouldn't have any problems.

You can find some helpful homeschooling in Mexico questions and answers on my website. Check out Jon's response to a similar question.

Also, Mike Richardson from El Hogar Educator has written an ebook (in Spanish) with many FAQ's on homeschooling in Mexico.

One other site I found that may be of help:

Creating a transcript or portfolio is a great way to remember all that your girls have completed or accomplished each year. Some families continue to use American homeschool curriculum and programs while homeschooling abroad; some of these companies offer transcript services.

I hope this helps you! I would love to have you visit again and update us with any more information that would be helpful to others who want to begin homeschooling in Mexico.

Hi Mel,

I don't know if you are still in Guadalajara, but I have homeschooled there and I didn't register my children there. I kept my children registered in Maryland and I had my portfolio evaluation using Skype.

I also use a curriculum that register and keep all the work, but that is not necessary.

Its good to see you that you homeschooled for your own kids! I will try to educate my girl even until kindergarten. I made a research on review to know whether the children will grow updated when they are homeschooled.
