since 1954, C.A.T. offers students an opportunity to graduate with dual U.S. and Mexican
High School diplomas. ● Parents.- The school’s community is largely comprised of highly educated
professionals Mexicans. A Significant number of parents in the community are
themselves, bilingual graduates of the C.A.T. and have close business and
financial ties with the United States. This factor motivates the community to
support an American-based program in the school.

As a teacher, what are the major plus points for working here?
It has been a privilege for me to work here. Colegio Americano de Torreon is the best school to shape up the future of the children. Being a teacher, I have found each and everything which is required to make a good learning environment for students as well as an appropriate teaching environment so that the teachers can convey their knowledge in the best possible manner. Apart from studies we also make our students participate in extracurricular activities in order to help students in all round development.
I certify that this review is my own opinion based on my personal experience of this school. I understand that International Schools Advisor may remove this review if it is found to be in breach of the site's Terms & Conditions.
