In Elementary School we focus on the development of formative and academic skills, in addition to stimulating the students’ interest in research.
Elementary School admits children aged 6 to 11 years old, covering from 1st to 5th grades. Each grade is divided in four classes of approximately 26 students, led by a Homeroom Teacher and an Education Team of each area of studies.
At this stage, learning is natural in the students since a greater number of sensitive periods in their lives, which makes it possible to take advantage of qualities innate of their childhood such as curiosity, willingness and ease to learn, energy and illusion, all of which ensure a better learning. The methodology we apply is based on inquiry, where students are the active protagonists of their learning with a dynamic participation and their teachers, important agents in guiding them through this process.
As a School of the IB World, in Preschool we work with the Primary Years Programme (PYP) of the International Baccalaureate.
