Mexico City - School Report Question and Answers

Describe the general climate of the grade level that you teach or your child attends:

In our experience, unfriendly, impersonal. This is a very large school. There are problems with bullying even at first grade. - May 2016

The campus is compact and very welcoming. It's easy to maneuver to classes and the sports field is in the center so kids can enjoy the greenery on breaks and afterschool. The air is better there than at home in their neighborhood. . There is a pool and basketball court. Whenever we visit the students always look very happy. My kids love their school. They have thrived in the last 2.5 years are sad to be leaving when we transfer out in the summer My kids have tons of friends, do well academically and take sports, drama and music. - Jan 2016

There was a huge turnover in teachers at the school this year. There were upward of 25 new teachers across the lower and upper schools. All teachers in J4 were new, except for one who taught J3 the previous year. Teachers are personable and the school seems to recruit classroom teachers from England with some local teachers for specialist classes. - Jun 2014

Despite its name of French-Mexican highschool it is mostly a Mexican school with a majority of French teachers (but not all). All international schools here are more Mexican than American or British despite their names. 4 to 5 families from the US mission place their kids there (not all with ties to France). I believe it is better for primary school than high school. - Jul 2011
