|The Thomas Jefferson Institute
is a private school (K-12) located in the northwestern part of Mexico City
in the State of Mexico, in one of the largest cities in the world! Our Elementary,
Middle, and High Schools are housed in a remodeled Ex-Hacienda built over
400 years ago.
The Kindergarten is located nearby in a suburban neighborhood of Mexico City. The school has a total population of 1,850 students, 130 teachers and 70 administrative staff members.
1978, when the school was founded, the Thomas Jefferson
Institute has developed into one of the most prestigious schools
in the Mexico City Metropolitan area due to its high academic level, English
instruction, logical and stable discipline, and strong extra-curricular
activities such as our theater program.
Based on the principles of self
esteem, respect, and academic excellence, our mission is to
develop educated leaders for the 21st Century who can compete, succeed, and be role models
in this high tech world while maintaining a commitment to family and moral values, Our
schools principal is a US citizen, born and raised near Quincy,
Illinois, who received her BS Degree in Education from Valparaiso University, Valparaiso,
Indiana, and a MS Degree from the University of
In addition to our solid academic program the students also receive courses in art and technology, participate in cultural activities, and enjoy various extra curricular activities. We believe that a well-rounded individual will be better prepared for the rapidly changing future, and will enter the world as a self-motivated inquisitor of life-long learning.
Hopefully we can "open the eyes and the hearts of our students to want to accept and understand new ways of thinking becoming truly bicultural and community members of the entire world".
