About Us

Most of the foreign community takes advantage of the private bilingual schools with grades from Kindergarten to Grade 12. The majority of the English teachers have English as their first language and are from the United States or Canada. Many US holidays are celebrated, so there is a good chance that the children will still celebrate Thanksgiving, Halloween and St. Patrick's Day.
AMCO (Arisocale Abraham Lincoln School & Baby Gym)

The AMCO method is a proven and accredited program that provides a revolutionary system of teaching English and Spanish which is much easier and more effective than traditional methods. We have integrated the coverage and sequence of the education of the State of California as the basis for our educational materials. Today, more than 100,000 students from pre-school to ninth grade utilize our program. Although the majority of students come from Mexico, our method is already used in Spain with excellent results and is currently being evaluated in other countries.
