The results are in! See how your colegio ranks against other high schools in Costa Rica.

EKA, the empresarial magazine, recently published a list of Costa Rica’s Top 50 High Schools. Here at TCRN, we’ve translated the data provided by the Public Education Ministry (MEP), so that you too can make informed decisions about which colegio to send your kids.

While scores and rankings are based on standardized graduation tests known as the examenes de bachillerato, what’s particularly remarkable is that every school on this list has a 100% graduation rate.
