Join us for an extraordinary teaching adventure at the American School Foundation of Monterrey, located in the lively city of Monterrey, Mexico. Situated in the heart of Northern Mexico, Monterrey offers a seamless blend of safety, cosmopolitan charm, and endless opportunities for exploration. As a flourishing "beta city," it combines a dynamic, modern lifestyle with a rich tapestry of cultural traditions.

Imagine your weekends spent savoring delicious street food, Sunday carne asada, or world-class dining and nightlife, all set against a backdrop of breathtaking mountain landscapes ideal for hiking, rock climbing, and canyoneering. During the week, you'll play a vital role in an outstanding team of educators, committed to their own professional growth while equipping students for success at esteemed colleges in the United States or Mexico, and well beyond. During school breaks, any number of short flights makes Monterrey your gateway to explore not only Mexico but much of Latin America and the United States.

Don't let this chance to experience the best of education and adventure in one place pass you by. Join us and make a lasting impact in the heart of Monterrey – apply now! Our school, like most overseas schools, does most of its hiring from November through March for the following school year. In addition to this website, ASFM attends several recruitment fairs in the US and accepts applications through AMISA, Search Associates, UNI, and Teach Away staffing platforms.

ASFM History

The decision to create an American type education in Monterrey began at a meeting of parents at the Monterrey Foreign Club, on the night of June 28, 1928. The school opened on September 3, 1928, at 724 Hidalgo Street, with a Principal/teacher and two other teachers caring for the educational needs of 57 pupils ranging from primary to tenth grade. The school was organized under Mexican law as a private civil society and received its charter on October 13, 1928. During the 1936-37 school year the location of the American School moved to an address on Bolivar (now Padre Mier) between Pino Suárez and Rayón. After June 1938, it moved again to the site of the Old Country Club in Obispado. In April 1944, the school was reestablished under the name of The American School Foundation of Monterrey as a non-profit society, founded by four individuals. These individuals were joined some months later by one other person and thirteen companies, who then comprised the original Founders. Read more...
