Learning
 
 
 
 
The English and Spanish programs are based on reading, for the development of vocabulary, grammatical structure, spelling, oral expression, and analysis. The students develops a joy for reading, which will allow them to have a better understanding of all subjects.
 
Students develop math skills through the use of international programs in which they learn different ways to solve problems, using logic and not just memorizing concepts.
 
In science, students not only learn theory but also develop projects and experiments that lead them to understand the contents of the program in an experiential manner.
 
In the area of technology, our students will be able to use and integrate applications and programs for the creation of projects in different subjects.
 
We measure the academic performance of our students in the main subjects by international standardized tests (MAP).
 
The use of technological devices was integrated into the instructional tools of fifth and sixth grade to improve student learning.

Physical Classroom Set-Up
 
The classrooms have different areas to make better use of the classes:
 
GROUP INSTRUCTION AREA
 
This is the area near the blackboard and screen where students sit on the floor, on a mat, in order to concentrate them in a small space, and thus ensure that everyone understands the lesson.
 
A place is assigned to each student and the rules of work and conduct expected in this area are explained.
DESK SETTING
 
The desks are set up in groups so that students can work and reflect on what they have learned together, encouraging oral expression.
 
Placement is according to the needs of the students.
CLASSROOM LIBRARY SPACE

There are libraries of 300 books in English in each of the classrooms from 3rd Kindergarten to 6th grade, aligned to international educational standards.

The objective of these libraries is to improve the students' level of English by encouraging the joy for daily reading, in order to enrich the vocabulary, comprehension, oral expression and reflection.
WRITING CENTER
