The Edron Academy and The Mexican Education System
From year 7 through to year 10 (equivalent to 6th year of Mexican Primaria and 3rd year of Mexican Secundaria respectively) the bi-cultural system is maintained. This means that students follow programmes with British and international content, and at the same time cover the Mexican curriculum; hence, by the time they finish Secundaria at the Edron, they can go on to attend any educational system they choose. The curriculum is taught by Mexican or British staff, depending on the subjects.
When students in years 11 to 13 (equivalent to 1° to 3° of Mexican Preparatoria) finish their education, they receive a document of revalidación de preparatoria which allows them to enter both national and international universities.
For a student to obtain this revalidation, he must:
- a- Obtain a passing grade by the end of year 11 in a minimum of five international exams (IGCSE) including English, Spanish, Maths, Science and a Social Science.
- b- Obtain the International Baccalaureate Diploma at the end of year 13.
- c- Pass the subjects laid down by the UNAM programme for schools under this particular agreement (convenio):
- Year 11- Geography of Mexico
- Year 12- History of Mexico
- Year 13- Law
The school has admissions agreements with Mexican institutions such as Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM), Universidad de las Américas Ciudad de México, Universidad de las Américas de Puebla, Universidad Internacional, Endicott College and Universidad Anáhuac del Sur amongst others. Further details of the specifics of these agreements can be obtained from the Secondary office.
