Cost For Boarding At All Girls Schools In Jamaica
Westwood High School
How much is it for boarding school for girls in jamaica?
ANSWER: by Wellesley, October 29, 2013
Thanks for your question.
From my recollection, we have about three boarding school for girls in Jamaica currently:
- Hampton High in Malvern, St. Elizabeth (876-966-5115)
- Westwood High in Stewart Town, Trelawny (876 612-0052/0307) &
- St. Hilda's High in Browns Town, St. Ann (876-975-2218)
And yes, I was able to get some information from Westwood High as a reference for you!
The boarding fee is currently JMD 46,000 per term, that is approximately USD 450 at today's USD to JMD rate.
I understand that this fee includes meals and rooms - including electricity and water.
There is also what they call Miscellaneous Fees per term, but those are minimal.
These include $650JMD (6 USD) for Parent Teachers Association (PTA) and another that goes to CD, transportation, student council and medical.
The latter ranges between JMD 3,000 and JMD 10,000 or USD 29.00 and USD 98.00 per term.
They typically tells you the exact costs at the beginning of each term. There are three (3) terms in the school year.
Payments are done only at their designated bank via a voucher form. Note also that they (Westwood High) have stopped taking transfers.
According to them, the requirement for acceptance is a pass in the GSAT (Grade Six Achievement Test).
I hope this helps.
