“Han sido 2 años llenos de grandes retos, pero también de grandes logros! ITJ le ha dado a nuestro pequeño, ese apapacho, esa fuerza y capacidad de resiliencia ante las adversidades de la vida, le ha demostrado que a diario se puede ser mejor, a encontrar y disfrutar de sus habilidades; nos ha regalado estabilidad, una gran sonrisa y la seguridad de que él crecerá cuidado, feliz y único!”

“A school that goes beyond the books and practically introduces children to new age concepts! Going the extra mile has made it more fascinating for children and has definitely made learning more fun. From celebrating world festivals to teaching different languages and participating in extracurricular activities, children are given a bright future. Periodic interaction with teachers and other specialists allows me to actively influence my child’s future.”

“One of the best decision I have ever taken is to educate my child in “Instituto Thomas Jefferson campus Santa Mónica”. Best school in Mexico City. Great place for the overall development of a child. It gives exposure to students in almost all fields. The school provides a safe, loving, secure environment and lays the best foundation for children’s academic endeavor’s. The teachers are very co-operative and humble, they focus on conceptual teaching. The teaching methods are just amazing. I don’t find any burden or pressure of studies.The schools focuses on the overall development of children and doesn’t just focus on academics. ITJ is just not a school, it’s a community of individuals who have come together to make the world a better place with their students!!.. I’m very happy and proud to be a part of this school.”
