nominatim may help. Take the first row in the spreadsheet, for instance.
http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search?q=Rue Waag,Port-au-Prince 
shows the map with Rue Waag in Port-Au-Prince,
is the same thing in structured XML and with a breakdown of address 
details and with a bounding box.

These kind of queries are pretty easy to run automatically for 3900 
schools. And the output helps to better
understand where these schools are expected to be located.
