Welcome to ITJ Zona Esmeralda

It is a pleasure to welcome you to Instituto Thomas Jefferson, Zona Esmeralda

I am glad to be able to accompany you in that most important parental decision: finding the best school for your children. I invite you to work in partnership with us, to develop your child’s abilities to the maximum.

Our aim is for your children to be hard-working, resilient and successful learners. Equally important is our belief in educating the whole child. We want your children to grow up as kind, caring and happy people.

At Instituto Thomas Jefferson, our team provides amazing learning experiences for your children.

Our innovative educational programme develops the students socially, personally and academically. Together we shall grow confident, creative and independent learners; open minded, curious thinkers; problem solvers who never give up; mature, responsible, global citizens, ready for the real world.
solucionadores de problemas que no se rinden; maduros, responsables, ciudadanos globales, listos para el mundo.

We truly are a family at Thomas Jefferson and we demonstrate our caring values in everything that we do.

Estaré encantado de que se unan a nosotros en este viaje hacia la confianza, la felicidad y el éxito.
