Christel House Mexico after school program
When the bell rings at the end of the school day at Christel House Mexico (CHMX), the learning doesn’t stop. More than 360 kids (over half the school’s students) stay to participate in a variety of after-school programs.
The after-school hours give struggling kids a chance to get remedial support in English, Spanish or Math. For others, it’s a time toparticipate in soccer, basketball, yoga, music, dance,art, chessor robotics. Twelve teachers and staff supervisethe students.

Veronica’s mom also approves. “I’m very grateful with the attention she receives after-school,” she says.
