About Us

Since opening its doors in 1998, Mexicayotl Academy of Excellence has distinguished itself by providing a quality standard dual language education and a unique intercultural curriculum. By embracing the values of the world we want to create, students grow into tomorrow’s leaders and role models. The importance of high academic achievement, culture, and the values of respect,  responsibility, self-discipline, and social justice form the foundation for each new generation that walks through our doors on the way to changing the future.
Mexicayotl offers a unique academic program that gives students grade-level literacy skills in two languages as they exceed the state standards. Mexicayotl Academy also provides a specially prepared environment with special teaching materials that advance and stimulate a child’s natural development. We want every child to be happy and prosperous at Mexicayotl, and we believe parents play a crucial role. That role is to continually show interest in their child’s school and support the student. A child who knows their family is interested in and keeps the school program will almost always have fewer problems in school and enjoy tremendous success.

We prepare scholars to excel in a Dual Language, Interconnected, Green World. We believe math, reading, and writing is just as important as recognizing our indigenous roots.
Our educators are passionate and help create critical thinkers in both english and spanish that are civically engaged and plan ways to lead community impacts.
