"We believe in
'results-oriented' education...
and the results are impressive!"


The question always is, what results has Harkness Institute achieved and by what measure?  These are things we analyze on a regular basis, and we have ended up using numerous approaches to measure our progress. And by every measure our students seem to come out with extraordinary success.

      In the state-administered test for seniors, our students had always been number one in the Vallarta area for years. That made us proud, but it is only a partial evaluation.

     So, we administer the widely used College Board examinations. And by these measures our students have been exceptional.  In the latest exams Harkness students came in #1. Not just among all the schools in Mexico.  But all those elite schools in Latin America.  Number One. 

     But testing alone isn't the end result.  What happens to our students after they graduate is just as good a measurement?  Virtually all our students have been accepted to attend Universities in Mexico, Canada, United States and leading universities around the world after graduating from Harkness.  In fact, our students have or are studying in 16 countries around the world.  As far east as Abu Dhabi, as far west as Japan...and as far north as Sweden and as far south as Argentina.

Some of the major universities include:

Washington State University, New York University (Abu Dhabi), Cornell College, University of Rochester, University of New Mexico, Savannah College of Art and Design, San Diego State University, University of Miami, Arizona State University, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Whitman College, University of Utah, Lehigh University, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Kettering University, Cornell College, University of Toronto, University of Alberta, Concordia University, University of British Columbia,  Bishop´s University, University of Calgary.
