The Significance of the Primary Stage
Throughout the Primary stage, our aim is to consolidate cognitive, social, and emotional processes.
On the emotional and social fronts, we prepare and support children through each stage of their growth, helping them understand themselves, strengthen relationships, learn conflict resolution, cultivate sensitivity, and demonstrate a willingness to assist those in need.
Intellectually, we strive for them to learn how to learn, to be motivated by challenges, and to tolerate frustration as a natural part of an effective learning process.
We work to instill a sense of dedication and commitment in them, both towards themselves and their personal learning journey, as well as towards collective learning.
CPC: CAMBRIDGE PRIMARY CHECKPOINT
Students in 6th form take the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint (CPC) as a culmination of the primary stage in the international curriculum.
English, a vehicle for intellectual development
We view the English language as a vehicle for intellectual development across all stages. Beyond acquiring the linguistic skills necessary to master a second language, our aim is for children and teenagers to use English as a vehicle for thought; learning, reflecting, and thinking in English just as they do in Spanish.
Sports and Development
We perceive sports as a fundamental tool for character development, providing students with opportunities to implement emotional and intellectual skills.
We expect that when playing sports, each of our children and teenagers will evolve into the best version of themselves. We strive for them to acquire both generic and discipline-specific athletic abilities. We encourage teamwork, a sense of belonging to the institution, discipline, and commitment to themselves and their teams.
AN ALTERNATIVE APPROACH TO LEARNING
By merging various disciplines, children learn to observe, define, and solve problems, becoming active participants in every phase of the process.
Steam –Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math–
We cultivate, among various skills for learning, creative thinking, curiosity, and problem-solving. By adopting this approach, through STEAM we encourage each student to understand the world around them from a comprehensive perspective, aiming to apply diverse tools and integrate knowledge. This allows them to experience the value of interdisciplinary collaboration in the pursuit of solutions.
In Drama classes, students build self-confidence, public speaking skills, and an awareness of their body's presence in space.
Art: Nurturing Creative Sensitivity
We make use of the power of music and the arts as tools to engage and enhance our students, fostering not only their artistic skills but also their sensitivity. Through performing arts, we also cultivate the acquisition of diverse skills which promote teamwork.
The school provides an application for institutional communication.
Through this app, parents receive all information related to their children's activities at the school.
Technological Innovation: the Present and the Future
The integration of technological tools into education is an integral part of our daily efforts.
We work to ensure our students feel comfortable with the use of new technologies, becoming responsible and proficient users.
Our institution offers connectivity across all areas and a mobile classroom equipped with iPads for exclusive use of our Primary groups.
We support our endeavors with invaluable tools such as Loqueleo Digital, which fosters intensive and extensive reading skills, and ELdeS, a platform for Sign Language instruction.
Our Campuses: Facilities Thoughtfully Designed for Children
Each of our campuses features classrooms equipped to cater to the needs of each group. Additionally, there are computer labs, libraries, and gymnasiums.
Our Horneros campus is located within the school's sports field, featuring a football pitch, a hockey field, and the necessary equipment for track and field activities.
