El Salvador Education


There is, in principle, a nine-year free basic education, which is divided into three three-year stages. During the first two stages, about 90% of children go to school, while less than half do so during the third stage. School conditions are significantly worse in rural areas than in cities. The illiteracy of those 15 years and older is estimated at 26% (1992). A private school system operated by the Catholic Church exists alongside the state, especially at the university level; some thirty colleges are private. In San Salvador there is a state university, founded in 1841. Check topschoolsintheusa for test centers of ACT, SAT, and GRE as well high schools in the country of El Salvador.
