This paper presents an application of a metapopulation model structured in
classes for the study of population evolution of a network of schools. The global dynamics
are considered in two parts, the local, where the evolution for each grade in a cycle is ac-
counted, and the metapopulation or the movement of students between schools. Simulation
of the model is presented.
