Overview

Starting in the 6th grade, students work within the framework of IB’s Middle Years Programme. As they move on to 11th grade, they certify their studies with the UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico) and the International Baccalaureate from which they can choose between the Diploma Programme and the Career-Related Programme.

Jewish identity permeates throughout our daily lives, within the curriculum in the form of Jewish History and Tradition, extracurricular activities such as the March of the Living, Judaic Studies Seminar, and Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Jewish calendar of traditions and festivals, as well as all the individual initiatives of our students within the framework of the Jewish identity and values program.

Work experience, community involvement, and sporting and artistic activities are highly valued and encouraged throughout High School; the Student Council as well as the extracurricular and college guidance programs, provide opportunities for our students to get engaged.

All our graduates go on to university studies, both locally and internationally; the success they enjoy, is an ongoing tribute to the dedication of the many parents and teachers who have played a part in making the Atid School what it is today.

High School Field Trips

When students leave the classroom, they see the connections between what is happening at school and in the ‘real-world’. They begin to see that what they learn within the walls of the classroom can help them solve the problems they see in the world around them and can have a direct impact on who they become as people. Through an integral learning, they work on developing different skills such as analytical thinking, problem solving, experiential knowledge and affective-emotional knowledge. 

Service-learning experiences are most effective when students are working towards tackling an authentic need in the community. Students work on identifying a real need, making a previous research and making a proposal to help people in different rural communities, developing changes that have a real impact on both the student and the community.

These field trips focus on the following subjects: social service, creativity, interdisciplinary and academic work.

Community Service

Atid School, in its role as a Jewish educational institution, is committed to teaching its members the importance of sharing, helping and improving others’ quality of life whenever possible. Beyond fundraising, our students reflect on the importance of contributing their time, work and skills in participating in one of the many community service programs offered at Atid.
Even though each grade level has one main program in which it participates, children are encouraged to bring their own ideas and proposals for new programs they can contribute to. Students complete a service requirement each semester and frame it within the reflection and evaluation of the project they carried out. This way, students can embrace their role in taking responsibility for shaping the community around them. From this perspective, they learn how their contributions shape their interactions with others at a local, national and global level.

Student Council

Listening to student opinions and promoting their participation in school life has always been one of Atid’s main interests. There is a Student Council that governs the student body. Comprised of a President and a Vice-President, and a representative of each of the High School sections, the five-person council leads classmates in school spirit activities, fundraisers, and other events.
