best schools puerto rico

If you’re moving to Puerto Rico with kids or already live here, great chances are you’d not only want the best education for your children, but one that’s affordable and an easy transition for your child. Puerto Rico boasts a 94% literacy rate and some of the highest college rates in the world. Education is given top priority on the island so much so that this sector receives 40% of budget spending, though much of that doesn’t actually go to the schools. 

There are over 44 universities, 1530 public schools and 570 private schools, with most located in the capital, San Juan. The primary language in most schools is Spanish, with some institutions offering English as a primary language and many that are bilingual. Public schools are free for the residents of Puerto Rico, but vary greatly in quality. They also are predominantly Spanish speaking which can be a difficult transition for kids coming from the U.S.

Below your will find a long list of the best private schools in Puerto Rico (in alphabetical order). Do you have a top school that you would like to add to the list? Please comment in the section below.

General school stats:

  • The school term starts in August through mid-December and January through late May.
  • Puerto Rico is the #25 largest school system in the United States.
  • There are 23 special education schools.
  • The student:teacher ratio of 13:1 is less than the 14:1 national average.

  • Please add my Academy in your list.

  • Would you please list our school. We’re located in city of Carolina.

    Thank you very much.

  • Greineldo Parsa says:

    Aparte de los errores gramaticales y las estadisticas irreales de “alfabetismo” en la isla y la razón maestro(disponible):estudiante(no desertor)… Es bastante informativo.
    Y aunque estoy seguro de que debe ser de las mejores #? de Puerto Rico ¿quien clasificó a UGHS como “bilingüe”?
    ¿Que están considerando como u sistema de educación bilingüe? Y ¿Que estan considerando como alfabetismo, saberse el abecedario e identificar palabras y puntos de acentuación?

  • Academia San Ignacio De Loyola, Río Piedras PR. PK-6th grade is missing!

  • Isabel Lorenzo Brocket says:

    I was quite surprised to not find SESO, Mayaguez listed amongst the top schools.
    Christian Academy in Cabo Rojo is also an excellent school.
    My three children came from English boarding schools and attended one or both of these institutions between 1996 and 2011..
    Whilst many traditions and teaching methods were obviously quite different, i believe the quality of education was excellent.

  • Luz Pérez says:

    Please add Colegio Católico Notre Dame. In 2016 will have 100 years of bringing bilingual education in the Caguas area. It offers programs with emphasis in science and math. Also offers a great variety of extra cirricular activities. It is one of the largest private schools in PR.

    • Luz Perez says:

      Colegio Católico Notre Dame esa founded in 1916. This year we are celebrating our 100th anniversary.
      Please make the correction. Thanks.

  • Carlos Colon says:

Gracias adelantadeas.

  • CIMATEC says:

    Competing with this high ranking school is CIMATEC which only introduced itself around the 2008’s gaining prestigious prizes nationally and internationally too. In such a short period of time it has position itself with the most productive students embarking in the STEM’s career system. Great education and commodities.

  • José Bayoán Santiago Calderón says:

    Colegio San Ignacio de Loyola is not bilingual.*

    The list is missing Colegio Católico Notre Dame de Caguas (Notre Dame High School). Every year it has the top scores in the college admission tests for local universities, great placement in universities in the US and the University of Puerto Rico, and various extracurricular achievements (Chess, Model UN, Robotics, Oratory, Forensics, etc). It also has a much better tuition price than similarly ranked and need-based financial aid.

    Source: Attended both.

    • Andy says:

      I second your comment. My four children are graduates of Notre Dame and one was accepted and graduated from MIT, an indication of Notre Dame’s strong emphasis in math, science, and technology. I think that this listing is a random listing of private schools without any scientific or statistical valuation of standings within the educational community. It is the largest private school on the island.

  • Allan J Gotay Caballero says:

    Colegio Santa Gema in Carolina is a great choice for students. The academic program is competent, but I have not seen a private school that also develops and encourages them to practice and perform in sports and arts! Always participating in different competitions involving their students at all times. Colegio Santa Gema is a little community, everybody matters!

  • Paola says:

    Saint Francis School has a great curriculum, awesome extracurricular activities and a great sports program.
    It’s located in Carolina, PR.

  • Anonimous says:

    Escuela Especializada en Deportes Eugenio Guerra Cruz

  • Yvonne O'Neal says:

    What happened to Episcopal Cathedral School? I’m surprised that it is not on the list.

  • S. Delgado says:

    Carvin in Carolina is a great school, and is bilingual.

    • N Santana says:

      Carvin School teaches a few english classes at most and that’s about it. Even on those where books are in english, they just speak spanish in class. I don’t think that’s what they mean by bilingual.

  • L says:

    These schools seem to be mostly centered on a specific part of the island. Why not expand the list to cover the breadth of the island?

  • Candice Blake says:

    UHS is actually a public school, not a private institution.

  • mao says:

    Since when University High School and University Gardens are Private Schools?
    They are both public high schools. UHS has very unique admission criteria for the gifted and talented only and it is a top school but is funded by the government. The fees that students pay a year doesn’t make it private.

  • Allison Joyner says:

    Ex-UHS student here… UHS is not a private school. It’s a laboratory school that does not run with the Department of Education of Puerto Rico. Yes, students are very much encouraged to take University courses, on top of all of the courses that are a requirement of each grade. UHS is definitely great training for college workload.

  • Jacqui Stgo says:

    Thomas Alva Edison School in Caguas, from daycare to 12th grade, fully bilingual-HIGHLY recommended

  • Anon says:

    UHS is a public school. My spouse graduated from UHS and it is an excellent school. This school often gets confused as a private school because of it’s rigor.
    As a former educator in Puerto Rico, and someone who has worked at Saint John’s, Baldwin, Cupeyville and the American Military Academy, Cupeyville was far superior in supporting their staff. AMA had the least amount of resources and many educators and staff were not bilingual back in the mid-2000s.

  • José Camacho says:

    Dear Sir/Madam:

    The University High School (UHS) is a public school funded by the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.

  • Amarilys says:

    PPK-6th grade. http://www.facebook.com/escuelajosefita for more information.

    Thanks!

  • Hello, Thanks for adding us into your website.

  • Essie says:

    THE PALMAS ACADEMY DOES NOT HAVE A COMPLETE STAFF OF FULLY CERTIFIED TEACHERS. You can check on their website “qualified teachers” because not all teachers are certified. The teachers speak Spanglish, they discriminate against American and military families. When my children were there, they’d make comments like “those military kids brought the lice and influenza here” When a few families asked for certifications, after teachers were saying outrageous comments in classrooms, the Director Ms. Versiono and Principal Ms. Lomba refused to show us the teachers certificate. Then a few months later all the parents received a letter stating their children would NOT be welcomed back the coming academic year, regardless of honor roll status, excellent behavior and grades. STAY AWAY FROM THIS SCHOOL!!!!

  • N Santana says:

    The Episcopal Cathedral School is an excellent add to the list. I was very surprised not to see it on the original list.
    Academics at its finest.

  • Mary Ann Pagan says:

    CEDIN part of Interamerican University Metropolitan campus is practically new but have great curriculum, variety of elective courses, billingual, offers other languages. Its one of the bests right now. From maternal – 12th grade. Offers many things other private nor public schools offer and accesible tuition fee.

  • Esther says:

    Colegio Congregacion Mita el mejor del mundo.

  • Colegio Católico Notre Dame was found in 1916 not 1976. Is the first school with an international accreditation by Advanced.

  • IVF says:

    Me pueden informar sobre la calidad de Carvin School? Gracias

  • Marie Valentín says:

    Add Colegio Congregación Mita. It’s FBLA Program is one of the most accomplished ones in Puerto Rico and that’s a lot to say since the school is not specialized in this area. It is not certified as bilingual but it might as well be. And the fact that distinguishes this school is that it doesn’t only focus on Academics, they teach their students about morals and promote critical thinking.

  • Cynthia says:

    I was a teacher in Puerto Rico, and this ratio of 13 students per 1 teacher is totally incorrect!!! At least not in public schools. In the public system the ratio is 30 to 1. In the private sector 15 to 1. In addition this article is only directed to the metropolitan area. There are many excellent private schools in the west coast as well

    • Franky says:

      Noticed you mentioned good private schools in the west coast of the island. Do you mind listing some these schools?

  • Ana Morejon says:

    Colegio Bautista de Caguas is also a very good school and Colegio Espiritu Santo in the heart of Hato Rey is an excellent institution. It has been there for more than 75 years

  • Josshuam Massas says:

    Radians school (Cayey,PR) is also one of the best privates schools in Puerto Rico, they improves STEM in the curriculum and they have a good campus!

  • Juan J. Estremera says:

    Colegio Congregación Mita (located in San Juan) HAS to be on the list!! I studied and there from Pre-K all the way to my Senior year and graduated. Best private school, best teachers, best environment!! I wouldn’t trade it for any other school and I would recommend it to anyone!

  • Anonymous says:

    I would like to suggest Escuela Micael in Aguadilla and Escuela Aurora in Old San Juan. Both of them are Waldorf schools and offer an excellent alternative to main stream education.

    Mater Salvatoris is also an excellent school in the metro area.

    I dont know what list are these people reading. Many of the schools they mentioned are in the list. In Aguada there is a lovely small alernative school called Semillas para una nueva humanidad. A wonderful school for children that love nature, freedom, discipline, friendship, healthy habits and learning in an alernative way, the waldorf way. And, by the way, my children are Seso and AIC alumni, and I am an AIC alumni myself. Proud to be a boricua.

    Todos los padres que he conocido han tenido que ponerlos al día en estas materias para poder entrar a un currículo de escuela tradicional.:(

  • Unpopular Opinion / The Truth says:

    El factor de que la American Military Academy esta hasta incluida en esta lista como una de las “MEJORES” escuelas privadas en P.R. me deja la impresión que obviamente se guiaron por apariencias y no historias verídicas. La AMA no es una escuela. Es una compañía, guiada por corruptos enamorados al dinero. Ellos no le interesan a los estudiantes, al menos que sea un estudiante con legado familiar en la escuela, una persona con muchísimo dinero, o una persona increíblemente talentosa en los deportes, ya que su “tradición de campeones” presenta que la American le importa más lo deportivo que lo académico, ya que como es “deportista” puede irse del salón de clase cuando le venga en gana bajo la excusa de que “va a un juego”, y los profesores no pueden hacer nada al respecto. Esta escuela trata a los profesores como basura. Aparte de que les pagan un sueldo bajo, le faltan el respeto a sus estilos de educación y a su precioso tiempo. Y si el estudiante recibe malas notas, los padres van y dicen que los maestros son a culpar por eso, no al estudiante que va y no presta atención, se toma fotos con su celular fuera, corta clases y se endroga o se pone “High”. Como punto concluyente, en esta escuela, no se aprende cosas beneficiarias al estudiante, les enseña cómo seguir órdenes del más arriba, así que en fin, me parece que la escuela esta cumpliendo su propósito cuando dicen que son una escuela militar.

    Y no ha lo de la boca para afuera, ya que lo he visto y lo he vivido en carne propia por 7 años.

    • BisontesEnManada88 says:

      Como 40% de las cosas de las cual escribes son veridicas. El resto es mentira basada en pura rabia. La American Military Academy es una excelente academia. Es una escuela laica, bilingue, respetuosa, con estudiantes que promueven EXCELENCIA ACADÉMICA, HONOR, RESPETO, y CARÁCTER entre muchas otras cosas. Si va a comentar algo, hagalo con hechos y datos veridicos. Gracias.

    • UNPOPULAR OPINION / THE TRUTH says:

      Si. Y los baños son limpiecitos, y la comida del comedor es exquisita, y sus estudiantes son simplemente PERFECTOS no? Por favor. “Alicia en el país de las maravillas” parece un evento histórico a comparación de lo que escribe. Si es de la clase del 88, como dice, déjeme decirle que las cosas han cambiado de aya para acá. Sabía que ahora hay hasta una corrupción para la posición del estudiante del año? Que para ser el mismo aparentemente nada más tienes que ser el presidente de un club de honor que ellos tienen? Y que para su acreditación como escuela, les enseñaron solo lo que querían que vieran? Como tu me vas a decir a mí que no son corruptos cuando su administración escoge a los más lindos, los más inteligentes, y los más cobardes para enfrentar a las acreditaciones? Y si un estudiante habla mal de algo sobre la escuela, te garantizo que la administración es capaz de hacer cualquier cosa, hasta son capaces de nombrar a esos estudiantes para perjudicarlos con su cuerpo estudiantil. Quítenle los rehenes a los estudiantes. Dejan que hablen libremente sobre lo que piensan de su escuela ahora sin ningún estilo de repercusiones, y verán como cantan más alto que “el Tweetie Bird”.

    Marista de Manati, comparte los mismos principios que Marista de Guaynabo pero el costo es mucho menor.

  • Sofía says:

    The numbers need to be revised in order to include all the yearly fees (building fees, registration, and tuition, etc). If you consider this, the numbers look quite different. For Saint John’s the yearly fees (registration, tuition and building fees) are between ~ $10,500 and $15,000, depending on the grade. San Ignacio and Parkville are very similar to Saint John’s. Robinson is ~$1,000-2,000 lower than Saint John’s and Baldwin a couple of thousand over. The yearly fees for Marista are between $6,400 and $7,200.

    It is important to consider that there are additional fees such as lunch ($4-$6/day), after-hours care (3-6pm) that can add-up really quickly.

  • Zen says:

    Wondering what criteria was used to create this list. “The Best” according to whom or what? I’ve been visiting Schools over the last 6 months including many in the above list. Innovation and bilingual are loosely used in this article in items that they DO NOT APPLY. If the headline was “The MOST traditional…” it would make a little more sense. Leaving out institutions such as CROEM, CEDIN, Daskalos, Josefita… shows the article is lacking of current data.

  • Orlando Cruz says:

  • ZAcevedo says:

    The UPR, Mayaguez Campus has done a survey of their top students and Orli school COLEGIO San Jose from San German, has been on the top 2 spot. I don’t know where u get the facts but you should consider revising your list and dividing it by location.
