In this paper, a comparative study of predicting student dropout risks at the ITSM-Mexico (Instituto Tecnologico Superior de Misantla-Mexico) using SQL server is presented. This system uses the personal and academic information from the students at the ITSM. The comparative study is using four algorithms: logistic regression, clustering, decision trees and neuronal network, these take account the information in the database of the control school system of the institute. The results show that the logistic regression algorithm has a good agreement with experimental results.
