SESO – Southwestern Educational Society

SESO is a college preparatory school committed to developing competent, well-rounded students in an environment that values individual intellectual achievement. The school combines an English immersion program with modern, flexible teaching techniques and methods. Our curriculum is designed to help students develop the necessary skills needed for academic and life success. La industria de la educación privada, reconoce y atesora la autonomía de nuestras escuelas que ha sido reconocida en el ámbito jurídico en el Plan de Reorganización, y sobre todo, la importancia de perseverar en la defensa de los cuatro principios básicos que nos cobijan. Son nuestras escuelas, basadas en su misión y visión quienes definen qué enseñan, cómo lo enseñan, quién lo enseña y a quién se le enseña. Y es nuestra asociación, como única voz e instrumento de la educación privada de nuestro país, quien como propósito firme y responsabilidad indelegable vela y lucha por que esos postulados sean cumplidos y respetados en todas las esferas de nuestro país. School Director and President of the AEP Association of Private Education of Puerto Rico

Best private school in the the western area of Puerto Rico.

They don't have a qualified, degreed school principal. Coming from a well to do family along with being a popular parent, DOES NOT make for a qualified administrator. A lay person without training in the field, i.e. Bachellors in Education and Masters in School Administration is a must, especially when the tuition is way above the norm and are supposed to be training students to become as competitive and comparable to Prep High Schools. Good Intentions do not automatically make a person qualified for an administrative position of such importance and responsibility. What is being modeled to students by allowing a untrained person execute the role of an administrator is fraudulent and deceitful. It is wrong! I would never pay money for my child's education knowing that the administrator of such a prestigious learning institution is a fraud.
Allow me to explain and clarify, so that the lady from the previous comment and the people she might have confused with it can understand better the reasons why SESO is one of the top academic institutions in Puerto Rico. Southwestern Educational Society (SESO) is not just a private school, but a private independent school. This means that is not attached or subordinate to any superintendency or religious group, therefore is responsible for the design and decision making process of the entire system; administrative and academically. In order to serve that purpose, its top administrative body consists of five professionals instead of sole Director/Principal figure and they are all experts in their line of work. Leading the team there is an Executive Director also known as Head of School or Head Master in similar institutions such as Baldwin, St. Jones, Robinson, Tasis, Caribbean and a few others in PR. This person is in charge of the corporate business, strategic planning, financial budgeting, human resources, income programs and promotion, and supervises all the corporate general operations and affairs. He/she operates as the Chief Executive Officer of any corporation. Then SESO provides not one, but three Academic Directors, one for each level, Preschool, Elementary and High School each of them with strong academic preparation and background in education in their respective levels. As it was wisely pointed out, experts in the academic field are the ones supervising all the academic processes of the school such as curriculum, assessments, benchmarks, plans, student progress, teachers, grades and they even evaluate tests, and monitor student's academic performance. The fifth person in that team is the Operations Manager who is in charge of the accounting department and maintenance of the physical facilities. Furthermore, SESO also provides the services of a licensed School Psychologist and a Registered Nurse as part of the regular service offer, enough professionals to perfectly serve both, the students and the corporate business needs; all of them approved by the government agency that provides academic institutions with the license to operate and do business in PR as a DC to 12 academic institution, and by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools by which we are accredited with all the regulations met and all the certifications required for both. Our product speaks for itself. 100% of our students successfully attend the best colleges and universities in PR and USA. We also provide a vast competitive sports program, English, Spanish, French, Italian and Mandarin, Afternoon Program, competitive Math, Physics and Science Program, Robotics, Cheer Leading, Fine Arts and Music and a lot more for the past 41 years... The Sky is the limit!!! Come to SESO, feel at home...

One of the leading private schools in Puerto Rico, and the premiere K-12 preparatory school of the Mayaguez metropolitan area. Classes are conducted in English. Along with the above-average education is the above average cost of tuition. Children who go to this school end up being a bit "strange" by their graduation (it's hard to explain, it's just a SESO thing).
