Here and now
For an open future
The student as the focal point
Since each person is unique, we offer a personalized educational project. The student is the protagonist of his/her own learning. The educational process adapts to the student’s needs, strengths and aspirations to help the student develop his/her potential.
The educator: mediator, guide and companion
The educator is a competent professional, a model of the principles and values she/he wishes to impart. The educator empowers the student, respecting their learning style and familiar with their needs collaborates in their integral formation.
The family, principal agent of the education of its children
The family is actively involved in the educational process. In a spirit of co-responsibility it participates in school life and establishes open and respectful relationships which promote family-school collaboration.
Our classrooms are open to the world
They are dynamic and constructive workplaces where dialog and critical thinking are promoted. Classrooms are spaces where students learn from inclusiveness, cooperation, play, exchange, debate.
