  • How many students are there in each year group?
    Each year group has between 22 and 26 students. This allows us to maximise individualised attention from teachers.

    Learn more about how we teach.
  • What's the language of instruction at Greengates?
    We’re proud that our language of instruction is English across all courses for international students. Both international and national programme students learn all STEM courses in English. However, students in the national program take humanities and social sciences in Spanish, while international students take their courses in English.

    We also have Spanish and French language classes. 

    We offer English Language Support for students who require additional assistance with their immersion into English. 
  • What are the curricula at Greengates?
    Greengates Primary School is a fully accredited International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) and International Primary Curriculum (IPC) School. Nursery to Year 1 study the IEYC, while Years 2 to 6 study the IPC.

    Not only has Greengates been the first school to achieve IEYC and IPC accreditation in Mexico; it’s also been one of the first to achieve both Primary and Early Years accreditation in Latin America. The IEYC and IPC are part of the International Curriculum Association (ICA), which has been developing children’s learning in schools worldwide since 1984. 

    In Years 10 and 11, students prepare for IGCSE examinations administered by Cambridge Assessment International Education. Students choose their subjects and specialities, while following a balanced framework that includes English, mathematics, Spanish, and science.

    In Years 12 and 13, all students follow the IB Diploma Programme, a curriculum designed to stretch the best of university-bound Secondary students using international benchmarks of excellence. Our Diploma Programme’s pass rate has been between 98 to 100% in recent years, well above the global average. We’re the only school in Mexico that requires all students to earn the full diploma.

    Discover more about our academic excellence.
  • Does Greengates offer Special Educational Needs (SEN) services?
    We can support students with mild SEN at Greengates School. We integrate students who are receiving SEN services fully to all classes and may require parents to provide the support of an assistant, depending on the child’s needs. 

    Not all students requiring SEN services can have their needs met within the existing resources of our school. SEN may include learning difficulties, delayed development, physical disability, or behavioural or emotional issues. 

    Our school-based assessment on SEN involves the class teacher, deputy Head of Primary pastoral, Head of Primary, our school counsellor, and an external evaluator. In Secondary school, we have two counsellors with master’s degrees in clinical psychology/counselling and specialised training in special education for students in Years 7 to 13.
