At the Peterson Schools we use the Montessori Method in English. We have highly trained staff contributing every day to the integral and academic formation of each of our students. All kindergarten teachers are Montessori guides trained and recognized by the International Montessori Association (MIA) and have a degree in pre-school education. Likewise, the assistants at the Children’s House have a diploma certifying them as Assistants by the International Montessori Association.
Each classroom does not exceed a total of 25 students. Preschool classes are given in English. In addition, all the students in Children’s Community and Children’s’ House attend an Oral English class every day to strengthen their knowledge of English through song, games and rhymes.
Pre-First offers 6-year-old students the opportunity to strengthen and consolidate the knowledge and skills developed in Kindergarten. Pre-First guarantees a smooth transition to the Primary School level. Classes are given in English. Students work with two teachers throughout the day in mathematics, reading, language and science. The students attend the computing laboratory twice a week, working with programs to support the work given in class and to develop technological skills.
o complement our work in the classrooms, we offer our students classes in art, music, hydroponics and physical education to promote their natural development in all areas.
Students visit the library once a week and we promote reading further with our Lending Library, through which children take a book home every week to share with their families.
The Social Service program in preschool helps our students develop a sense of social responsibility at an early age by involving them in a variety of activities through which they can contribute to society.
Preschool has a full-time psychologist who observes the work and development of our students and follows up on observations made by teachers and parents.
The Primary School students at the Tlalpan campus enjoy a bilingual, bicultural environment where they develop their potential fully. They work half a day in Spanish and half a day in English.
Our education is personalized with the members of our teaching staff taking into consideration the needs and learning styles of each student. Classroom size is limited to a maximum of 25 students.
To support the all-round development of our students, Primary School has special classes in Art, Music and Physical Education staffed by professionals.
The Primary School has a library and computer lab to help students with their learning and research. The psychologist attends to students with specific needs and works in collaboration with parents and teachers.
We offer an Emotional Excellence program that permits children to express their emotions and deal with conflicts and difficult situations by putting their values and social skills into play.
The main objective in Middle School is to strengthen and broaden students’ habits and skills to achieve all-round development. This will allow them to mature through attitudes and aptitudes for their academic and personal formation.
The program offered at High School is authorized by the Department of Public Education (SEP). In addition, we offer students the International Baccalaureate Diploma program. The main objective of High School is to promote methodic and rigorous reflection, as well as the skills required to inquire, order and classify information to assume an ethical attitude when applying knowledge. Our students will also acquire the necessary knowledge to continue their higher studies.
Education in both sections is given in English and Spanish. This ensures that our students have full command of both languages, which will enable them to understand and communicate with other cultures. The academic program and other activities are divided between both languages at all school levels.
The school’s hallmark is a constant interest in developing in our students in environmental awareness through programs such as hydroponics and a recycling and waste management. The Tlalpan campus is recognized by SEMARNAP-SEP as a green school and environmental leader.
The Middle School and High School are constantly training their staff members and allots a significant part of its budget to achieve this.
Our admissions process is open year-round, subject to space availability.
