School for Parents

At Colegio Maya, we believe that parents are their children’s first and most important teachers.

That’s why we offer a variety of School for Parents sessions throughout the school year. These sessions are designed to help parents support their children’s learning and development at home.

Our School for Parents sessions are age-appropriate and based on our four Life Ahead pillars:

  • Autonomy: We help parents understand how to support their children’s autonomy and academic progress at home.

  • Organization: We help parents prepare their children to be leaders in a globalized world. By working together to solve problems, students learn essential communication, collaboration, and problem-solving skills for success in all areas of their lives.

  • Responsibility: We help parents teach their children how to be responsible citizens who make a difference in the world.

  • Collaboration: We help parents prepare their children to be global leaders by teaching them about diversity and inclusion, how to resolve conflict peacefully, and how to make a difference in the community.

We encourage all parents to take advantage of our School for Parents sessions. They are a great way to learn new skills and connect with other parents.

ISSE exchange program – Primary Division

The International School-to-School Experience (ISSE) is a unique international program that provides 5th grade students with the opportunity to learn about different cultures and make new friends from around the world. 

The program pairs schools in different countries, and students from each school can visit the other school for a week.

During their visit, students participate in activities such as attending classes, going on field trips, and meeting with local families. They also learn about the culture of the host country through its food, music, and customs.

Community outreach program –10th, 11th & 12th grade

Our school is committed to giving back to the community. We believe it is important for our students to learn about the needs of others and to make a difference in the world.

Our community outreach program provides opportunities for students to volunteer their time and talents to help.

These experiences will help them become compassionate and responsible citizens.
