    One good resource that I found on the internet was through the government's Department of Education, where they have ratings and information on most of the schools in the DR. They also rank each school on a number of factors and arrive at a total score and grade for each school.
    ------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------
    FOUND IT, the ultimate guide to Dominican schools (at least what the Secretary of Education cranks out, but very informative, and looks like it includes most of the civilized D.R. districts - but information is from 2002-2003):

    go to:
    http://www.see.gov.do/sitesee.net/co...rmularios.aspx

    and then click on the bottom selection on the left side "Resultados categorazacíon Por distritos" and you will get an Acrobat document with all criteria.
    --------------------------------------
    --------------------------------------

    Correction to Chiri's post above:
    The rates at the St. Patrick School are RD$53,000 for nursery - kindergarten, RD$73,000 for grades 1 thru 6, and RD$93,000 for grades 7 thru 12. The instruction is in English, but I believe there is also a bilingual option. The school is very international, with many students having a foreign-born parent.


    Also:

    St George School (Some would say it is the best school in the DR now)
    Calle Porfirio Herrera #6 casi
    Ave. Abraham Lincoln
    Ensanche Piantini
    Santo Domingo
    tel: 809-562-5262
    website: www.stgeorge.edu.do
    preschool through high school, and 2 years pre-university studies
    Bilingual, and accredited in the US
    Cost is about RD$12,000 mensual

    I have also heard that the St. Thomas School in Arroyo Hondo is very good, and very expensive.
