According to topschoolsintheusa.com, Equatorial Guinea is a small nation located in Central Africa, bordered by Cameroon to the north, Gabon to the south and east, and the Gulf of Guinea to the west. The country has a total area of 28,051 square kilometers, making it one of the smallest countries in Africa. Geographically, Equatorial Guinea is divided into two distinct parts: mainland Río Muni and insular Bioko Island. Río Muni is covered largely by tropical rainforest with some areas of savanna and grassland. Its highest point is Mount Santa Isabel at an altitude of 3,012 meters above sea level. Bioko Island has a more varied landscape with rainforest-covered hills as well as mountains and beaches along its coast. Equatorial Guinea’s educational system consists of three levels: primary school (ages 6-11), secondary school (ages 12-17) and higher education (ages 18+). Primary education is compulsory for all children between 6-11 years old but attendance rates are low due to poverty and poor access to schools in rural areas. Secondary education is free for students who complete primary school successfully but again attendance rates are low due to financial constraints or lack of interest from students. Higher education is provided by public universities which are free for those who have passed their secondary school exams or by private universities which can be quite expensive. In addition to formal education programs there are also non-formal programs that provide alternative learning opportunities such as adult literacy classes or vocational training courses designed to equip adults with job-related skills.
