Welcome to Instituto Thomas Jefferson Campus Queretaro

We are a great family that shares a vision of what education should be. We are passionate about what we do and we put our whole heart into it. We want our students to thrive in their social and emotional growth while we provide them with learning experiences that lead them towards academic excellence. Our students are our center. We want them to learn and be happy and successful, and to live and enjoy their present while they acquire the skills to be successful in the future.

My commitment is to each one of my students, parents and members of staff. I am convinced that working as a team creates an environment of learning, harmony and love where we can all grow together. It creates an environment or respect, responsibility, honesty and loyalty where we lead by example.

I can’t wait to meet you!
