Why choose ITJ Querétaro?
ISP Buddy Exchange Program (BEP)
Enables reciprocal learning exchanges between ISP schools for a period of one month for students aged between 14 –17 years old. It gives our students the unique opportunity to connect with other people, other cultures and other countries and provide another truly collaborative learning experience.
The ISP Model United Nations (ISP MUN)
Is a truly international and multicultural event where our students come together from around the world to experience an educational simulation of a real UN conference. This activity invites the school community to join a real-life committee representing a country’s delegation. The task is to debate with other countries to solve an international issue in a diplomatic manner following the ideals from the Charter of the United Nations.
TJ MUN (Model United Nations)
Is an academic simulation in which our students become diplomatic ambassadors of the country they represent, participating in discussions of social, cultural and economic issues worldwide. Every year we have approximately 400 participants from different schools in the state.
During High School, our students prepare to present one or more international English certifications such as: FCE, IELTS and / or TKT. These allow them to have access to the best national and international universities.

ITJ Elementary Orchestra
The ITJ Elementary Orchestra project was born 6 years ago to turn the curricular music class into a learning experience that allows 3rd and 4th grade students to experience music from an entirely different perspective. Students acquire the skill of playing an instrument or using their voice as one and at the end of the year there is a concert to share what they learned with family and friends. This experience favors the development of self-regulation skills and the ability to following instructions. It is an extraordinary exercise in tolerance, respect and recognition of the importance of teamwork.
Leadership, Entrepreneurship and Innovation (LEI)
Through the Leadership, Entrepreneurship and Innovation (LEI) course, designed in collaboration with the University of Mondragón (Spain) and Team Academy (Finland), our students develop teamwork, leadership, effective communication, and conflict resolution skills, using the “Design Thinking” methodology. They create their own company and support the social work of different organizations in their community.
International High School (IHS) program
Our International High School (IHS) program allows our students to obtain the American Baccalaureate certificate, issued by the Pennsylvania state government and the United States Department of Education.
