    Try something like this:

    List<School> myschools = . . . the list of the schools
    
    var xr = new XmlSerializer( typeof( List<School> ), new XmlRootAttribute { ElementName = "RESPONSE" } );
    
    string xml;
    
    using( var sw = new StringWriter( ) )
    {
        xr.Serialize( sw, myschools );
    
        xml = sw.ToString( );
    }
    
    // display the result
    Console.WriteLine( xml );
