Health and Wellbeing

The American School is more than a space where one can “collect knowledge”. It is also a place that believes that our students’ physical and emotional health is a top priority. As such, we aim to provide our children and teens with prevention and development strategies essential for a healthy present and future.

Each campus offers students access to health services and fully trained school counselors, who provide students with age-appropriate support and guidance.

Activities and Culture

Field trips and cultural activities form an important part of our students’ development as globally minded citizens and positive change agents. The AS makes a concerted effort to provide students with opportunities to learn about Mexico’s history and cultural wealth and that of the world.
