Education in San Lucas

About 85% of children attend grade school, some only for two or three years. About 50% of the children go to junior high, and of those, some 70% go on to high school.

Almost all of those who go on to college study at weekends.

Although primary schools are (almost) free, parents have to pay if their child goes to secondary school.

Many of them are only able to send their child to secondary school because sponsorship pays their school fees and costs(see 'Scholarships' above).
