Private Schools in Chile
One of the main concerns for expatriates in Chile is providing the best education for their Children, whether alternative education or deciding between private and public schooling.
Private education makes up about 7% of primary and secondary education mainly concentrated in Santiago. Most expatriates in Chile choose private schools since they generally offer higher quality and standards for education, smaller class sizes, choice infrastructure and facilities, and a variety of extracurricular activities.
Additionally, private schools students tend to have higher SIMCE and PSU scores. In the last decade, of the top 100 schools based on PSU scores, 95% of those listed were private.
