Typically, there are mainly four secondary schools in Mexico, including general, technical, particular and, tele-secondary schools. Every year, millions of students enroll in different types, and their academic performances turn out to be quite different. This paper estimates the academic outcomes of adolescents in different types of schoolsand explores the impact of some chosen factors on the math scores and Spanish scores the estimated coefficients obtained are facilitated to explain the effect of school type. Although the estimates suggest that the tele-secondary studentsperform the best in math tests, and particular students score the best in Spanish tests when holding other influential factors accounted, there is no specific evidence that depicts the advantages of different schools, therefore the cause of estimated difference in test scores cannot be explained here.
