International Programmes

Colegio Internacional Terranova is the only educational institute in San Luis Potosí that offers three of the International Baccalaureate® (IB) programmes. The IB’s primary aim is to develop international-minded students who are conscious about what unites them with other human beings and the responsibility that they share in taking care of the planet while contributing to the creation of a better and more peaceful world. In addition, the programmes aim to help develop students who can think critically, challenge assumptions and communicate in more than one language.


Colegio Internacional Terranova forms part of the extensive network of “IB World Schools” which is made up of 5,000 schools across the world. 


We are pioneers in the implementation of International Baccalaureate® (IB) programmes in San Luis Potosí since 2011.


Among the teachers at the school, five are members of the IB Educator Network


All teachers at Terranova participate and collaborate in professional development workshops and conferences organized by the IB.

The IB programmes are designed for students between the ages of 3 and 19 and encourage students to excel in their studies and achieve their personal and academic goals.
