Our Philosophy

Five major ideas guide our Philosophy

1.-Children construct understanding through their experiences

 
At our schools students become active protagonists in the construction of their knowledge. Teachers act as facilitators setting up an environment full of rich provocative experiences.

2.-Knowledge is dynamic.

New technologies and sciences make evident that knowledge is constantly evolving. Education in the 21st century is about acquiring skills and tools for life to adapt and enjoy the present and prepare for the future. Special skills such as open mindedness, teamwork, creativity, media literacy, empathy and ethics are required to succeed in this new era.

3,-Knowledge and thinking are inseparable

What is important is what we do with the knowledge not the memorization of concepts. At our schools, children learn how to think, develop good thinking habits and their thinking dispositions toward learning. We offer a Thinking Based Program!

4.-Meaning in understanding

When a learner discovers knowledge through understanding, what is learned becomes more powerful and gains meaning. At our schools the passion for learning is discovered and children become lifelong learners.

5.-Education makes a difference

 
We not only make a positive difference for children, but also for parents, educators and the community. We foster knowledgeable thinkers, with ethics, open mindedness and values to pursue our goal: intellectual, social and morally autonomous children.
