2016 begann die Metropolitan International School ein fortlaufendes Austauschprogramm mit der renommiertesten Ausbildungseinrichtung in Mexiko, dem Tecnológico de Monterrey (ITESM). Nach dem ersten Austausch zwischen beiden Institutionen haben beide Schulen begonnen, intensiver miteinander zusammenzuarbeiten und seitdem wächst mit jedem Semester die Anzahl der teilnehmenden Schüler an.
Das Tecnologico de Monterrey ist eine private Einrichtung, die 1943 gegründet wurde. Mittlerweile verfügt es über drei Campus in Mexiko und fast 100.000 Schüler und Studenten lernen an ihr. Es zählt zu den angesehensten Universitäten in Südamerika. Wenn Sie mehr über das ITESM erfahren wollen, besuchen Sie die Schule im Netz.
Among our MIS teachers, Mr. Odon Sanchez studied high school at ITESM (Campus Eugenio Garza Lagüera) where he received an honorific mention for academic achievements and graduated as a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics from ITESM (Campus Monterrey) in 2008 with a special mention for sports achievements. Mr. Sanchez first became a teacher while doing his community service at Programa Tutor in Monterrey and has also taught in China, South Africa and the Maldives before joining MIS in 2014. He obtained his TEFL certification in Prague in 2010, is an IGCSE Physics assistant examiner since 2014 and has attended five Cambridge Professional Development courses in Indonesia, Spain, Germany and Italy. Mr. Sanchez has greatly contributed to the program and helps as a connection between students in Mexico who are interested in the program and to the integration of those who are already taking part.
Our very first ITESM student at MIS, Juan Diego Martinez Garza, joined our school for the September-December 2016 semester and quickly became one our top students. Juan Diego, who had the highest possible academic scholarship (beca de excelencia) at ITESM (Campus San Luis Potosi) displayed excellent behavior and achieved an A* (90% or higher) in all of his subjects including some which he studied for the first time in Germany such as physics. As an MIS student, Juan Diego also took part in field trips to Luxembourg, CERN in Switzerland, EUMETSAT in Darmstadt and the Oktoberfest in Munich among others.
