Requirements for admission and registration renewal

A personal interview, between the parents or legal representatives of the pupil and the School’s Director of Admissions or whoever makes this decision is a sine qua non requirement for admission.

The first step is to fill in the Admission form in the following link:

Request information

Once we receive a request, we will contact the interested parents to arrange a visit to the facilities and a personal interview with the parents.

The personal interview with the parents or legal representatives of the student with School Admissions or with whom it determines, is a requirement and an essential condition.

For students who join Primary, Secondary or Baccalaureate, English, language and mathematics level tests will be necessary, which will be decisive in a student’s admission.

* See the access requirements for the International Baccalaureate Diploma program below.

* Skype interviews are possible.

* We will conduct interviews and specific tests with students of any age with special needs.

The omission, concealment or negligent falsification of academic, medical-psychological, personal or social information will entitle YAGO SCHOOL to terminate this academic registration if the school year has not begun. Once the school year is underway, the student’s right to education is always respected, and the consequence is the lack of enrollment renewal for the next school year and the waiving of parent/guardian rights to a refund of any amount already paid.

In the exercise of the right of admission, the renewal of enrollment for a new academic year constitutes an exclusive YAGO SCHOOL faculty, provided a justifiable cause.

In the event that the student presents some kind of learning difficulty, YAGO SCHOOL will inform parents/guardians in order to adopt the necessary internal or external support measures. Special support will have an extra cost. Students who have special educational and/or social needs will only be admitted if the School can offer a program that meets his or her individual needs.

Students who join the School from Primary 1 onwards must take English or “Spanish for Foreigners” support classes as recommended by the teachers. From Primary 2 onwards, students must take Chinese support classes, as well.

If a student comes from a foreign education system, he or she will be enrolled by date of birth.

The decision to assign open enrollment spots corresponds to the Management Team exclusively, according to their criteria and without outside influence.

Registration will not be renewed for students who have had disciplinary problems during the school year. The decision will be communicated by to its parents by the Management Team at the end of the school year.

Registration will not be renewed for students whose parents or legal representatives owe outstanding amounts to the School before the end of the school year, for any given reason.

The School may dispose of the enrollment spots of students whose parents or legal representatives have not paid the spot reservation fee within the indicated deadline. Whether these spots are open or not is the decision of the Management Team.

The formalization of registration implies the tacit acceptance of these regulations and any other norm of the School, as well as its ideology.

The School may not renew enrollment of a student if it finds inappropriate, unjustified or repetitive breach of the rules of coexistence and the Internal Order Regulation by said student or his or her parents/legal representatives.

Yago School Nursery parents who have not paid full tuition must do so before the end of January of the previous year in order to guarantee their place in the Senior School.

The contract between the School and parents is based on full academic years, regardless of the fractional payment method chosen.

Registration fees, as well as Reservation fees, will not be refunded if the spot is annulled.

Yago School is a World School and offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.

IB World Schools share a common philosophy of commitment to a rigorous and quality international education which we consider essential for our students.

Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer the Diploma Program (DP).

The School has been preparing the preparation period established by I.B. to teach the Baccalaureate Diploma Program for two years. During this time, Yago School trained relevant teaching staff and adapted the curriculum and facilities to the established requirements. Yago School received its accreditation in June 2019 and began teaching the Diploma Program in September of the same year.

For more information about IB and its programs, you can visit http://www.ibo.org.

Admissions Policy for the Diploma Program (IB) at Yago School

We are a young and inclusive school with a strong commitment to guarantee the best education for our students even beyond their own personal abilities. Therefore, this policy will be flexible and as personalized as possible.

Academic and professional guidance process

At Yago School, we have a Counseling and SEN department that accompanies students from an early age (Secondary 1-Secondary 4), advising them on the learning paths they should follow according to their academic, personal and vocational profiles.

For this, we have implemented programs that facilitate and guide students in the decision making as it relates to future academic and professional choices, as well as the development of their “life project”, based on the recognition of their skills, competencies, interests and professional development needs.

Below, we show some of the follow-up and guidance actions carried out by our Counselling Department, as well as the Deputy Headmistress of Secondary & Baccalaureate, who is also the IB Coordinator, where development phases are highlighted:

  1. General information about the Secondary and Baccalaureate curriculum for families: Secondary and Baccalaureate curricula and their characteristics are offered. There are specific parent meetings in the months of October and May.
  2. General information about Secondary and Baccalaureate curricula and their characteristics are offered to students. This will be in March for Secondary 1, 2 & 3 students and in February for Secondary 4 students.
  3. The Counseling & SEN Department will do testing, activities and monitoring of academic and professional preferences, as well as aptitudes of Secondary 4 students (April). Test results are treated individually among Secondary 4 tutors, the IB Coordinator, parents and students in question, in a tutorial during the month of May.
  4. By the end of May, students must express their preference in relation to the type of baccalaureate they would like to do and the subjects they would like to take.
  5. Secondary 4 students must express, in writing, their willingness to pursue the Diploma Program at Yago School and assume the commitments it demands. This request must be duly signed by parents or legal representatives, and the student.
