The Edron Academy was founded in 1963 by Edward Foulkes, a Welshman who worked in Mexico in the publishing business and as a teacher for the British Council, and by Ronald Stech, a Canadian who became the school's first administrator.
Their vision was "To create a learning community in which every child would feel secure, wanted, cared for and free from tension and hostility." Over the years the school has retained these fundamental values, while adapting to change and expansion. In 1993, it achieved its bicultural status through incorporation with the Mexican education authority (SEP); and became an IB World School in 1995.
The school is now positioned as a high level-private school with a unique approach. It offers an adaptation of the British Curriculum that combines the advanced and multicultural focus of British programs with the identification and recognition of the needs of México and the programs of the Mexican Education Ministry.
