Torreón is a private catholic institution that offers a bilingual
program to Mexican children. The school was founded in 1983. There
are 360 children enrolled in our pre-school program, 500 in
elementary and 200 in our middle-school program (7th,8th and 9th).
|We promote the
development of the child’s personality, and the domain of the
English as a second language. Some aspects of our program are based
on Piaget’s research and subsequent theory concerning individual
growth and development. As a school we also promote nationalism and
moral development in our students.|
Pre-school program (ages 3 to 6) our children are acquainted with
the English language progressively. They also learn to master basic
skills and attitudes like socialization, development of their own
language and logical-mathematics concepts. Their psychomotor
development is also encouraged.
Elementary Program, we deal with a Mexican teacher in each class who
is in charge of the self contained Spanish program for two groups
and a native English speaker teacher who teaches the English program
and speaks only English during class time to the same two groups.
Therefore our students have a Spanish teacher one half of the school
day and an English teacher the other half. Elementary goes from
grade 1 to grade 6.|
High School Program which covers 7th,8th and 9th grades is called
Secundaria. Our day in Secundaria is divided in eight daily periods
of 50 minutes with a recess in the middle. There is a teacher per
each subject. Subjects taught in English are: Biology, History.
Geography, Physics, Chemistry and English.|
We also offer a
one year English Intensive Program for 6th graders who do not speak
any English, but would like to join our Secundaria. This program is
entirely taught in English and its goal is to master the language to
be able to study in English the following year.
All of our
students, from Preschool to Secundaria have Physical Education
classes with special teachers. Other special classes offered are
Computing, Art, science, lab, Religion and
