Education is the foundation upon
which we build our future.
– Christine Gregoire
OUR PEDAGOGICAL APPROACH
Education is the process of facilitating the integration of information and the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. It is the most powerful tool for the general development of human potential and the foundation upon which we build our future.
Through the shaping of our unique teaching method, we identify the student as an agent and the teacher as a facilitator, who focuses on the skills and practices, which enable communication. Our main teaching activity is to provide the best environment for lifelong learning and independent problem-solving through mutual exchange of information, giving everyone an active role in the whole process. For this reason, we also attach great importance to playful learning, as people who feel passionate, absorb information, and work in a much more effective way than by any other means.
Interactive collaboration allows students to participate in the learning process by talking to each other and listening to others' opinions. This creates a personal connection between students and the subject of study, helping everyone to think in a less partial way. Projects and group discussions are examples of assessing each individual's abilities to work in teams, develop leadership skills, build confidence, deal with criticism, use real-world problems, make assessments, and use technology to facilitate the integration process.
Although education is carried out under the guidance of facilitators, we consider any experience that has a formative effect on how one thinks, feels or acts to be educational. We therefore place a high value on the freedom of expression of everyone and respect each individual in their integrality, by recognizing cultural diversity as a source of enrichment and strength for the whole group and learning experience.
