Princeton School was founded by Ms. Katia Arakelian de Álvarez during the 1980 ́s, and from its earliest beginnings, it has always focused its energy and aspirations towards teaching children to a higher academic standard than that of its contemporaries.
Miss Katia ́s goal for Princeton was simple: “ To make children feel happy, at ease and comfortable at school”, as well as to provide a carefully planned, stimulating, caring environment, which will enable students develop an academic foundation, installing core values, confidence, and positive attitudes, all of which are priceless assets for becoming responsible global citizens. Furthermore, the future of our country and our planet will in time, become our children ́s responsibility.
We are proud to say that Princeton has maintained itself as a personalized school, without losing the character of one of the best schools in Mexico.
One of Princeton`s greatest strengths has been its ability to balance research and education, whilst instilling positive values, social skills, enhanced self-esteem and a greater sense of personal responsibility. Princeton School is conveniently situated in an urban setting in a nice neighborhood located in the southeast of Mexico City, and it has attracted a succession of exceptional teachers who have been teaching at Princeton for many years.
After celebrating 35 years of its history, from the tiny beginnings in Av. de las Fuentes # 218, through the growth of high school at Princeton School, campus Ajusco, up to the great and successful events happening academically and socially speaking, the essence of Princeton`s uniqueness, flowing out of its past and present is to be, “The outstanding place for education and fellowship”.
Princeton School achievements and growth have been made possible thanks to the active participation and innovative collaboration amongst teachers, students, administrators and School Board Members. Today, we can proudly say we have come a long way, but not half as far as we will go.
If some of the Princeton School ́s students come back in a certain amount of years, they will know that it is not precisely the same Princeton they left and knew, but they will still feel at home in a context that is perfectly recognizable.
