Founded in 2016, The Wingate School, located in Huixquilucan, Estado de Mexico, is growing apace. Sited within the vast and strikingly beautiful Mirador Ranch, it soon will be quadrupling in size to over 11,000 square metres.
A British-international foundation, currently offering a Kindergarten and Primary, TWS will be constructing its Middle School within the next few months. The 2019-2020 school year will see our rapidly expanding school roll stand at some 300 pupils, a community already representing some thirty nationalities.
Complementing its International Primary Curriculum (IPC), TWS also will be accredited this year as a Cambridge International School. Both these programmes will continue to be taught 80% in English and 20% in Spanish.
In addition, this past month TWS has become a member of the Latin American Heads Conference (LAHC).
TWS has been awarded the Foundation Certificate of the British Council’s International Schools Award, and, more recently, was very pleased to be recognised by the online international education publication, ‘The Knowledge Review,’ as “among the ten best schools in Latin America”.
