The American Institute of Monterrey is a private, bilingual, pre-kindergarten through ninth grade school located in the northern part of Mexico, 120 miles from the border with Texas.

With nearly 35 years of service in the community, the American Institute of Monterrey is recognized for its high academic standing, its educational innovations, its updated technological resources, its values and leadership programs, as well as for the high performance of students in track & field, basketball and soccer.

'AIM for Excellence' is the school's slogan, based on the Theory of Multiple Intelligences developed by Dr Howard Gardner, AIM seeks to develop its students' potential in their natural area or talents, while providing a well-rounded education, utilizing the Schoolwide Enrichment Model, developed by Dr Joseph Renzulli, through which enrichment opportunities are offered to all students, whether or not they are gifted.

American Institute of Monterrey stimulates students to participate in a variety of creative extra-curricular activities, including art, dance, drama, handicrafts, public speaking, journalism, video production and photography.

Educational services are provided on two campuses, twenty minutes apart: San Pedro, for Preschool and Lower Elementary children, a 2½ acre campus adapted for the needs of the younger children. The ten-acre campus at Santa Catarina, a spacious, modern building, located in a richly natural environment, bordered by spectacular mountains, is an ideal setting for Upper Elementary and Junior High students. Transportation services are offered between campuses.

AIM welcomes arriving international students with special academic updating services. This successful program helps international children to adapt promptly to the new system. To allow their expedient incorporation to regular classes, AIM provides individualized instruction for beginning learners of English and Spanish.

Admission is based on academic and behavioral records, entrance examination and maturity level results. Letters of recommendation from the previous school are required.

The school year begins late August, with a two-week break at Christmas, and a one-week break at Easter, culminating the educational period the last week of June.
