With careful documentation and a developing program of studies, ASD gained official accreditation in the United States through the American College Offices of the Department of Education. In Septemberthe American School of Durango was officially founded with a community of students from preschool to early elementary.
The United States Department of State granted financial support to the school until the mids. The first location of the American School of Durango was at the corner of the streets of Hidalgo and Negrete. Inthe school moved to a building on Francisco Sarabia in front of the Alamedas.
Harold Jarvis bought the building and donated it to the American School of Durango. The school maintained strong ties to the United States and Mexico, for example celebrating the major holidays that are central to the culture of each country. To this day, the school has a school-wide student-led flag ceremony for Mexico and the United States every Monday morning.
Of note, too, in its early years teachers received training in Mexico City, as well as science training from the University of Michigan and reading program assistance from the University of the Pacific. In its early years, ASD proudly partnered with the community to train Bilingual Executive Secretaries Durango to evolve a four-year program. Students who graduated from this program were able to obtain jobs in banks and other companies as bilingual secretaries and ing assistants.
