International schools group Nord Anglia Education has acquired Eton School in Mexico City, its 70th school worldwide and its second bilingual school in Mexico alongside San Roberto International School in Monterrey. The pre-school and toddler campuses are in Lomas de Chapultepec, while the elementary, middle and high school is in Santa Fe.
Founded in 1990, Eton School has 140 teachers and more than 1,500 students from pre-school to grade 12 who are taught in English and Spanish. The school offers the national and American curricula, the Middle Years Programme, the IB diploma, and an American High School Certificate with many graduates attending US, UK and national universities.
Andrew Fitzmaurice, chief executive of Nord Anglia Education, said: “We are connected by a shared philosophy wanting the very best for our students through outstanding teaching and learning. Eton School is an impressive school with a strong reputation in the local community and, working together, we are looking forward to building on its many successes.”
Liz Panchuk, head of school at Eton, added: “Becoming part of the global Nord Anglia family will make a huge difference to our students’ lives and the opportunities we create for them. A global mindset is incredibly important for young people and our students will work and learn together with over 67,000 other Nord Anglia students around the world. The strong fit between Eton School and Nord Anglia will benefit our students, parents, teachers and school community.”
