The School Year

Information about the organization of the school day in Mexico as well as links to Mexican school holidays...

School hours vary between public and private schools, as well as between states, but many will begin at 08:00 and finish at 13:00 or 14:00. In many areas of Mexico there are two sessions of schooling each day to accommodate the large number of students. These are divided into morning (matutina) and afternoon (vespertina) sessions.

School Holidays

In Mexico the school year begins in the second half of August and continues until the beginning of July. In addition to the summer holidays, there are holidays in December and March.
