Our students grow with access to a multitude of content. It has never been easier to consult information on any discipline and to do so immediately. Therefore, the School guides students with a clear objective: we want them to learn both about the content and the way in which they acquire it.
We have designed (and constantly update) our educational project so that the students play an active role in their own education, learning to learn so that they can continue to generate new knowledge for the rest of their lives.
In PYP (Primary Years Programme), the approach to acquisition and assimilation of learning is done through enquiry, thus discovery.
A statement of enquiry is proposed (a statement subject to analysis and research), prompting students to investigate, acquire knowledge, formulate hypotheses, try them, and achieve a product or result, using and familiarising themselves with digital technologies throughout the process.
Each unit of enquiry investigates a topic of interest to students, which helps them get to know and understand the world around them, since they pose true challenges.
Our library has over 60,000 books, generating 150 loans on average per day, managed by four full-time librarians.
From the age of five, students participate in the Information Literacy Plan (ALFIN), whose main objective is to promote our students to be independent users of information resources, that is, to know how to find the information they need, by themselves, and transform it into new knowledge.
Scientific experimentation occupies a prominent place in our academic project with 350 hours of practice for students between eight and sixteen years old and between 40 and 120 hours in Baccalaureate, depending on the chosen modality.
In this practice, our students develop experimental and research skills that will be of great use to them, regardless of their choice of professional field.
