This article assesses the status of secondary education in Peru in 1947. Secondary education in Peru is offered in a five-year school. The school year varies somewhat with the climate and occupations of the region, but in no case may it be shorter than nine months. In the first cycle of three years the same subjects are taken by all students, with no systematic regard, except in physical education for individual variations in interests, aptitudes and capacity. Successful completion of this course permits entrance to the specialization cycle of two years which prepares for entrance to the university or to technical, business, normal and art schools providing terminal courses.
