Welcome back to Prepa Celta!
From Claudia Molleda´s Desk | Prepa Celta´s Principal
For us, it is a pleasure to have our students again in the facilities of the school, especially in Celta´s High School. There is nothing that gives us more satisfaction than being able to share with you more closely, of course, always respecting the health protocol. We hope we can all return soon, absolutely everyone, and not everything is as before, but much better.
In these couple of days, we have met young people who are responsible and committed to others. We want to promote this culture of solidarity as a custom forever.
We appreciate your business and trust, and we are willing to play a great role in the education of our students, to continue promoting the attributes of the International Baccalaureate and to continue taking care of them in the academic, physical and emotional aspects.
We have grown our staff of teachers in order to provide them a much better service. We have a strong Psycho pedagogy and Vocational Counselor department that will continue to offer them, with a daily improve, services in this area. We implemented the Student Activities Coordination, as the means to promote a better student environment, but, above all, the participation of students at Prepa Celta´s social life. And it should be noted that we will continue making implementations to continue offering the best academic quality in our region and, of course, an exceptional service.
Soon we will let you know the different dates of induction activities for parents to our programs, so that as always, you can support us from home, generating a valuable exchange of ideas, but, above all, a team boost for the development of your children.
Next, I briefly introduce you to the STAFF of the Celtic High School.
Welcome back home!
Proudly, I’m Celta!

‘The more difficult the victory, the greater the happiness of winning’ -Pelé-
Remembering words that inspire and coming from one of the legends, not only of soccer but of sport and the culture of effort, the Celtic community and the Celtic High School congratulate and thank the commitment, effort and perseverance that characterizes our student SARA LUCÍA MOYA MONROY, who, last July participated in the “Festival de Volleyball Infantil y Juvenil Querétaro 2021”.
Sara, together with her team “PANTERAS” managed to crown all that effort and support with a championship that we are sure will lead them to continue preparing for the next stage and will provide them with tools to be better athletes, students and human beings every day.
The IB student and the international mindset
From Juan Cruz’s desk | Academic Coordinator
Our Celta high school is linked to IB education because it aims to prepare students effectively for life, facing challenges with the best attitude and commitment to life. For this reason, one of the strengths in the teaching-learning process is the link with the international mindset.
The international mindset, according to Muller at IBO, is a vision of the world in which people consider themselves connected to the global community and assume a sense of responsibility towards their members (2017, p.4); our students are linked to the international mindset through elements such as inquiry, reflection on current issues and the practice of skills in service to others; thus, these elements give rise to an active commitment to society.
It is necessary to recognize that, in the 2021 survey carried out by the IB, we were classified as one of the best schools internationally by fostering this mentality.
Thanks to all the parents, teachers and directors who support our students in their educational and training process; congratulations. We will continue to be the best educational offering for our local and international context.
