  • We would like to congratulate Gabriela Carrillo (generation 1996) who, together with Mauricio Rocha from "Taller de Arquitectura", received a Gold Medal from the French Academy of Architecture on June the 11th. Gabriela and Mauricio obtained this award as recognition for their career; their work has been described as "a subtle combination of proportions, volumes and light, where local materials and construction techniques play an essential role. From all this arises an unspeakable harmony, a hymn to well-being and beauty. Their approach seeks to translate the traditions and materials of the places in which they work to a contemporary setting. This is not done in an ornamental way, but with a structural focus ". Congratulations and here’s to many more achievements!

  • With great satisfaction, we conclude the 2018-2019 school year. Happy Holidays!

  • After 25 years, during which time most had not seen each other, they realised that differences in taste, style or ideology are just trivial. What really unites them, what lies behind every hug, every "what a pleasure to see you!", is that they grew up together. The School gave them roots and pushed them to take flight. Whether it was with a 10 or with 7, with a gold, orange, blue or yellow card, does not matter; the important thing is that it was experienced together, that it was at the Modern American School and that makes it wonderful. Thank you MAS for such an opportunity, thank you for lifelong friendships. Congratulations Class of 94!

  • On Monday the 10th of June, The Modern American School inaugurated a modern and functional meeting room.

  • After months of preparation, the elementary dance group presented a dynamic and energetic show called Rock of Ages. At this event, we were able to enjoy the great dance skills of our students to the rhythm of the best rock songs of the '80s and '90s. With music by the likes of AC / DC, Metallica, Gun's and Roses and Aerosmith, we enjoyed a great night of rock that we will remember forever.

  • We would like to congratulate Cecilia Vázquez, (generation 1986) for the recent opening of her exhibition Reflejos: resonancia del deseo.

  • In the fifth year of secondary school, a large theatrical production known as "El Play" is put on. It involves the whole generation and they work on it throughout the school year. This year, William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, known in Spanish as Noche de Reyes, was performed. Twelfth Night is a great masterpiece that has the potential to be too great for many school productions. However, the work of the students of the fifth year attests to their great talent, strong effort and deep dedication with which the productions are put together in the Modern American School.

  • Hello Spring! The Kindergarten of the Modern American School is celebrating the arrival of spring by observing the life cycle of butterflies, some of the most important pollinating agents in the world.

  • The MAS 2019 Book Fair for the students of Kindergarten, Pre-Primary, Primary and Baccalaureate was especially successful and engaging this year. The attendees - students, family and friends of the MAS community - enjoyed pleasant mornings interacting with words and books. This edition of the Fair incorporated a new activity: five alumni shared their personal experiences as writers, from their reasons for writing to the difficulties and satisfactions of this well-loved trade. The MAS community had the opportunity to listen to them and to ask them questions that they answered with the ingenuity and eloquence to be expected from masters of the pen. The alumni who made an appearance were Graciela Bellón (1981), Norma Elizondo (1979), Mónica Lavín (1974), Mauricio Sanders (1991) and Ma. Elena Sarmiento (1981). Congratulations on such creativity!

  • For several years, the American Modern School has been coordinating conservation and environment care projects in its "MAS GOES GREEN" program. During the present school year, all assemblies are aimed at helping the students to become aware of the problems that environmental pollution represents and of the actions that we can all undertake to counteract it. One of the most serious environmental problems that our society is facing in recent years is e-waste or electronic waste. This is seriously affecting the planet. We invite you to participate in the "Reciclatrón", to be held on the 25th and 26th of October. During the day, we will be coordinating the collection of electronic and electrical waste at UNAM: "Tu Tienda UNAM", from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Working together we can make a difference! "

Congratulations, Juan and Santiago! "

  • Every year, our high school students create a spectacular “ofrenda” to the dead in the Modern American School. This year, the UNAM Language Centre in Canada has invited the School to join with them to commemorate this tradition through the installation of an Altar of the Dead. Students and teachers will travel to Quebec, Canada to set up an altar and a flower carpet in honour of Frida Kahlo, Leonard Cohen and Jean Dellaire. We are so proud to continue internationally sharing a tradition that so very Mexican and that is so much ours. The offering will remain open until November the 2nd . If you live nearby, do not miss it! | Inauguration: Tuesday, October 30, 5:30 p.m. Location: Exhibition Centre Villa de Gatineau, "Maison du Citoyen" Address: 25 Laurier St, Gatineau, QC J8X 4C8, Canada

  • We congratulate Raúl Abraham Castro Corona (Generation 2011) for his outstanding participation in the G20 youth meeting, held last August in Argentina. Abraham was one of the two Mexicans, chosen from hundreds of candidates, to participate in this forum known as Youth 20.

On this occasion, it will meet in Argentina in order to debate policies relating to economic global governance. "

  • In 1996, the Modern American School started a social work project with final year high school students from the humanities sector. The project came about thanks to the dedication and commitment of the teachers Lourdes Chávez, Romeo Tello and Isabel Arregui. From the very beginning, one of the project’s primary objectives was to raise awareness among future graduates of the importance of recognising other realities existing within our country. From this moment on, a close link was formed with the Telesecundaria “Tetsijtsilin”, located within the Cuetzalan municipality, Puebla. | 1of4

  • Every year, as a result of the diverse activities organized by our students, the Modern American School makes donations to the Telesecundaria, both in cash and in kind. With the help of these donations, the school has been able to improve in terms of both the level of education and its facilities. The improvement has been such that nowadays the school works with more than 350 students. Among the diverse spaces that have been added to the Telesecundaria we have: classrooms built with limestone and reinforced concrete slabs, a mushroom farm, a butterfly house, an apiary, a library, and a senior management facility. As well as this, the contributions have helped towards increasing the bibliographical and technological resources. | 2of4

  • In the last two years, a bioclimatic building has been added to the list of projects. This building contains restrooms, showers and washing facilities, all of which has considerably improved the sanitation and hygiene of the Telesecundaria students. The building, designed by the Architect Fernando Trigo, is built from bamboo and limestone. Both materials are endemic to the Puebla mountains making the building 100% sustainable as it functions with rain water and solar energy, as well as processing waste to make compost and biogas. | 3of4

  • What began as a promising initiative, is today a fundamental part of our students’ comprehensive training. Cuetzalan constitutes a multidisciplinary project through which, with hard work and dedication, the students can realize their own strength and potential to make a change in their own environment, with the use of compromise and responsibility. | 4of4

  • On Saturday the 28th of August, the 1968 generation met to celebrate their 50 year graduation anniversary in what was a fabulous event. Forty ex pupils met to chat, remember and dance until midnight. Everyone dressed in black and white, reminiscent of their graduation photo from Primary Six. Congratulations and may there be many more future celebrations!
