Well-established and Innovative

At Colegio Williams being avant-garde has been a tradition for more than 100 years. The school was founded by the British pedagogue Camilo J. Williams. Since then, four generations of educators have developed a unique education philosophy, characterized by purposive and innovative approach.

Trendsetting

Colegio Williams was the first educational institution in México to include in its curricula sports, agro-livestock technology, and the most modern English learning methodologies and techniques.

At the Mixcoac Campus, there is a beautiful castle which up to 1917 belonged to José Ives Limantour Marquet, Minister of Treasury under President Pofirio Díaz. Both students and teachers find inspiration in the magical atmosphere of this 200- year old building.

Elevated Principles and Standards

  • An education that re-signifies and strengthens the pride of being Mexican.
  • An education that integrates mind and body, theory and practice, arts and science, voice and thought, project and reality.
  • An education that is critical, objective, optimistic, that, by understanding the present, projects towards the future.
  • An education that fosters research inquiry and for which individual growth and that of the community are promoted.
  • An education that brings about values that are acquired by practising them.

Outdoor Activities and Facilities

Sports and contact with nature are essential to the development of Colegio Williams students, for which the school has top quality grounds, facilities, and instructors for a wide range of agro-livestock technology activities, which include breeding animals as well as growing vegetables, and sports activities such as swimming, scuba diving, horseback riding, soccer, olympic gymnastics, cheerleading, dance, Tae-Kwon-do, tennis, volleyball, frontennis, and flag-football.

Computer facilities

Include 130 Mac Books in 4 Mac Shuttles to transport them to different classrooms plus 60 iMacs in computer labs.

Trips Abroad

Students are encouraged to participate in trips abroad that are organized by the school. The objectives are cultural and academic development, and the trips have included Canada, France, England, and the USA, to Iowa for scientific presentations and to New York for the National High School United Nations Model.
