Bilingual Schools in Mexico

One of the most important issues for families relocating to Mexico is that of the education of their children. Particularly since moving to Mexico means learning a different language than that spoken at "home," in addition to adjusting to different cultural and socio-economic standards.

ASOMEX schools offer international students from preschool through grade 12 an American type educational program in a bilingual-bicultural learning environment. A unique and comprehensive dual curriculum incorporates the best of the American and Mexican education systems and challenges our students to think, analyze, and study in both English and Spanish.

Offering educational programs that are based on academic curriculums found at quality public and private schools in the United States and in Mexico, ASOMEX schools prepare students for their future education at schools, colleges, and universities in the country of their choice.
