Welcome! Upper School includes the Middle School (7th-9th) and High School (10th-12th). There are a total of 145 students from different nationalities including countries such as South Africa, England, Australia, Taiwan, Canada, the United States, and, of course, Mexico. The percentage of foreign students is approximately 15%, although many come from bi-cultural families. This unique circumstance has provided a small school like ours with a distinctive multicultural environment.
Small classes allow teachers to get to know their students and keep parents informed about their progress, as well as permitting students to be exposed to a variety of experiences because they receive more individual attention. Our graduation requirements are designed to offer dual certificates authorized by the Mexican Secretariat of Education (SEP), the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), and by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) / Council on Accreditation Commission (CASI).
By the seventh grade, students are taking five courses in English and two in Spanish daily in our bilingual, dual-system program. The Spanish courses are in literature and social studies, whereas all mathematics and sciences are taught in English. There are currently several different AP courses offered for 10th to 12th grades.
