    You need an additional class:

    public class RESPONSE  
    {  
        public List<School> SchoolList;  
    }   
    

    Then you can use XmlSerializer Class to deserialize this xml.

                string xmlString = File.ReadAllText(@"C:\...\2.xml");  
                XmlSerializer xmlSerializer = new XmlSerializer(typeof(RESPONSE));  
                using (TextReader reader = new StringReader(xmlString))  
                {  
                    RESPONSE result = (RESPONSE)xmlSerializer.Deserialize(reader);  
      
                }
