OUR ACCREDITATIONS

We have several seals of excellence at Greengates, ensuring the high quality of your child’s education throughout their time at our school. Beginning with our youngest students, we're the only private school in Mexico to be accredited to teach the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), which require a rigorous review process from other international schools. 

For our Secondary students, Greengates has been an exam centre for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) course examinations, developed under the authority of Cambridge Assessment International Education. Since 1986, Greengates has also been an official International Baccalaureate (IB) World School and Exam Centre. The IB carefully reviews every aspect of our delivery of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) to ensure the highest quality: from our philosophy to our physical building. 

Within Mexico, the Secretaria de Educacion Publica (SEP) and The Universidad Autónoma de México (UNAM) recognise Greengates as one of the most relevant private schools in the country. Our accreditations from SEP and UNAM allow our students to pursue higher education in Spain, Portugal, and Italy and across Latin America.
