Eton School Mexico encourages parent involvement. Thanks to their participation, activities such as Eton Day, Eton Sports Day, Echa la Casa por la Ventana, nutrition workshops, among others, have become traditional events at our school. Parents also contribute to their children’s learning by sharing their expertise with a class to enrich the projects being developed at any given moment in the course. This is all thanks to the Eton School Parent-Teacher Association.
What is the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA)
The PTA is an organization focused on bringing teachers and parents together to make the school a better place for children.
What does the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) do?
