Alianzas

Desde su fundación el Modelo Educativo Thomas Jefferson ha sido líder y referente en la esfera académica internacional por su valor humano, innovador y formativo; es por ello que hemos sido invitados a colaborar de forma activa con prestigiosas universidades, empresas, fundaciones y líderes mundiales. Nuestras colaboraciones son claves en el diseño de experiencias ITJ dirigidas a desarrollar en nuestros alumnos un liderazgo con visión global.

Actualmente somos colaboradores con la UNESCO en la creación, revisión e implementación de una currícula para países emergentes. Con el Media Lab del MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) somos monitores de programas catalizadores de aprendizaje digital como SCRATCH además de participar como expositores en sus congresos bianuales. Somos también co-diseñadores de la primer currícula "verde" y la primer escuela del mundo en implementarla por medio de USGBC (United States Green Building Council) y EcoRise. Formamos con The Climate Reality Project y Al Gore a los líderes climáticos más jóvenes en certificarse. Son más de 120 programas se llevan a cabo desde Kinder a Prepa con el objetivo de equipar a nuestros alumnos con experiencias que den forma a sus competencias y tipos de liderazgo:

Since its foundation, the Thomas Jefferson Education Model has been a leader in the international academic sphere due to its humanism, innovation, and educational values; which is why we have been invited to actively collaborate with prestigious universities, businesses, foundations and world leaders. Our collaborations are a key aspect in the design of the ITJ experiences geared towards developing our students’ leadership skills with a global vision. 


Currently we are partners with UNESCO in the creation, revision and implementation of a curriculum for emerging countries. With the Media Lab at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) we are monitors of catalytic digital learning programs like SCRATCH, and we participate as exhibitors at its biannual conferences. We are also co-designers of the first "green" curricula and the first school in the world to implement it through USGBC (United States Green Building Council) and EcoRise. With The Climate Reality Project and Al Gore we form the youngest certified climate leaders. There are more than 120 programs carried out from Kinder to High School in order to equip our students with experiences that shape their skills and leadership types.

We are proud to share that this school year we will start an adventure with our most important alliance so far: International Schools Partnership (ISP). This collaboration will open up global opportunities defining the future of our school and students. 

ISP is an international organism of schools with its headquarters in England, whose vision is to inspire and promote in students the global skills that are required in the present; such as multicultural, creative, sustainable, and humanistic leadership skills. Through ISP we are capable of offering our students experiences through exchanges within the United Kingdom, Spain, and the Middle East. Likewise, we will be able to offer in our classrooms an education with foreign teachers whose vision and formation enrich the experience of our students.

This ITJ-ISP alliance brings forth challenges and exciting promises that involve the whole Thomas Jefferson family and is without a doubt one of the best pieces of news for our community. We embrace this new step with the conviction of planting in the hearts of our students the seeds for a brighter tomorrow.
