Ask most adults about their school years and you will probably hear about one of their favorite teachers. We know that having motivated and skilled teachers who serve as role models for students is equally important as a comprehensive curriculum.

Our faculty members are credentialed teachers representing diverse cultures and experiences. As of September 2013, there were 38 full-time and 3 part-time faculty members including 20 U.S. citizens, 11 Mexicans, 7 Canadians and 3 of other nationality, 50 % of whom hold a Masters Degree.

We encourage our faculty members to expand their own education and qualifications by providing them with opportunities to attend workshops as well as offering an on-site Masters Degree program from an accredited United States university.

The American School values individuality and as a result our faculty members represent a wide range of educational backgrounds, areas of expertise, and nationalities. Feel free to contact them with your questions or comments about the American School.
