According to wholevehicles, Chile is a long and narrow country located along the southwestern coast of South America. It is bordered by Peru to the north, Bolivia to the northeast, Argentina to the east and the Drake Passage in the far south. Chile has a total land area of 756,950 square kilometers (291,930 square miles), making it one of the longest countries in the world. The terrain of Chile is mainly composed of mountains and plateaus with some coastal plains in the north and south. The Andes Mountains run along most of its eastern border while further west lies a series of low-lying valleys and plateaus that stretch all the way down to Patagonia in southern Chile. The climate in Chile varies depending on location but generally features cool, wet winters with temperatures rarely dropping below 0°C (32°F) and hot, dry summers with temperatures reaching up to 30°C (86°F). Rainfall also varies depending on location but typically occurs between June and September with some parts receiving as much as 800mm (31in) each year while other regions may receive no rainfall at all. Education in Chile is provided by both public and private institutions at all levels – elementary school (ages 6-12), secondary school (ages 13-18), post-secondary (universities/colleges), vocational training centers, technical schools, language schools etc.. Primary education is compulsory for all children while secondary education is only mandatory for those aged 16-18 years old; however attendance rates remain low due to poverty levels among families as well as limited access to educational facilities in rural areas. Overall literacy rates are relatively high compared to other Latin American countries due largely to a strong emphasis placed on education by successive Chilean governments over recent decades; this has resulted in increased investment in educational infrastructure such as school construction projects across rural areas which has helped improve access to educational opportunities for many children living outside major cities such as Santiago or Valparaiso. Post-secondary education consists mainly of universities/colleges which offer programs ranging from engineering and medicine to business administration and social sciences; however due to limited resources available most students opt for technical or vocational training programs instead which provide them with specialized skills that can help them find employment upon graduation from these institutions.
