About the American School Foundation of Chiapas:
We offer a rich educational program, structured upon well-established curriculum guidelines from the Mexican Ministry of Education and the IB Primary Years Program. As an IB World School, we ensure a safe and thoughtful environment in which students are encouraged to grow as independent, respectful, responsible, and active citizens. We value constructivism and Multiple Intelligences as important components of the teaching/learning process. At the American School, we promote a cooperative and friendly work environment. We believe strongly in the importance of reflection, inquiry, and professional development.
The American School is situated in Tuxtla Gutiérrez, the capital city of the beautiful state of Chiapas. Tuxtla is a fast growing, bustling city, alive with the vivid colors and energy of Mexico. Not far from the city are mountains, canyons, beaches, pyramids, and the ocean, just waiting to be explored. Tuxtla Gutiérrez offers delightful sunny weather all year round, delicious culinary flavors, and a culture rich in history and tradition. Here you can combine the security of access to familiar amenities with the excitement of living abroad in a Spanish-speaking community.
