L&M HS Curriculum

The design of the curriculum is implemented through the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (MYP-IB), whose fundamental concepts are based on the development of communication abilities, the strengthening of international mindedness and a holistic approach towards learning. Learning is divided into eight subject areas:

  • Language and Literature (Spanish)

  • Language Acquisition (English and Hebrew)

  • Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology)

  • Mathematics

  • Individuals and Societies (History, Civics, Geography, Jewish History, Bible)

  • Health and Physical Education

  • Arts (Visual and Performing)

  • LDesign (Information Technology)

Additionally, transdisciplinary projects in which two or more subjects are involved are regularly embedded in the curriculum

Study units are based on key concepts explored in a particular context, where student work is led through an inquiry statement that encourage students to construct knowledge demonstrate comprehension. The goal is to reach understanding of learning through an interdisciplinary approach, problem resolution, case studies and projects in which each subject involved contributes to the final product with its concepts, language and/or methodology.

Students conclude their academic studies in MYP-IB in 10th grade with the development of a Personal Project, of original inspiration and creation, which allows them to demonstrate the autonomous learning and investigative skills they have acquired, as well as their ability to integrate different subjects and areas of study.

The Judaic Studies department is structured around two major areas of study:

  • Language and History

  • Tradition and Tanaj

Hebrew is stuided as an identity language, which provides common ground within the Diaspora. The history of the Jewish people, in both ancient and modern times, strengthens our students’ Jewish Mexican identity.

The study of the Bible allows for the understanding of the core Jewish values, while celebration of Jewish festivities fosters identification as Jews, with a common bond throughout the ages.
