The API can return KML, so you just need to do queries such as: Search queries (this one is probably the most relevant to what you need): http://api.wikimapia.org/?function=search&q=bus&key=YOUR_API_KEY&format=kml BBox queries: ...
You can use the wikimapia API http://wikimapia.org/api/ Specifically, you can use the API box to get the data from the category such as 'Schools' as KML http://wikimapia.org/wiki/API_box
