The school was established in 1894, situated on Canoa Street in Mexico City. By 1900, the number of students was approaching 300, including students from outside the German community. In 1940, a campus in Tacubaya was opened, and by 1968 the Civil Association "Alexander von Humboldt" is created,[clarification needed] named after the German naturalist and explorer. The institution had incorporated itself into the Mexican Educational System,[when?] so students could obtain either Mexican or German certificates. By 1970, two additional campuses were opened and over 1000 students attended the school.
The association currently has 3 main campuses, and additionally a Kindergarten, and an Elementary School.
