Being a secular institution, students can choose between Religion and Ethics. Therefore, it is optional to receive the First Communion.

 

Our main objective is to facilitate the growth of our students into open-minded men and women who can think critically, who are tolerant and respectful and who love progress and culture. In order to achieve this goal we have launched new teaching initiatives which accelerate the learning cycle of our students in a constructive environment of emotional motivation.

The following aspects should be emphasized:

Project-based learning, a more interdisciplinary style and the extensive study of the English language which will endow students with an all-important multicultural perspective of the world we live in.

Education in ethical values continues to be at the center of the whole teaching process. Both academic performance and correct behavior at School will be the basic parameters in the process of selection and permanence of everybody in the School community.

The International Baccalaureate Program provides a rigorous intellectual training and a committed social formation. It is recognized by prestigious universities in the country and internationally.

What’s the MYP?

The Middle Years Program (MYP) is an International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) program.  It is a rigorous academic framework that encourages students aged 11 to 16 years old, to make practical connections between their studies and the real world.

Students who complete the MYP have an adequate preparation to study the IB Diploma Program (DP).

The MYP aims to help students develop their personal understanding, their emerging sense of themselves and responsibility in their community.

The MYP curriculum framework comprises eight subject groups, providing a broad and balanced education for early adolescents.

The MYP aims to develop students who are:

  • Active learners
  • Internationally minded
  • Able to empathize with others
  • Have the intellect and skills to pursue lives with purpose and meaning.

It offers students opportunities to:

  • develop their potential
  • explore their own learning preferences
  • take appropriate risks
  • reflect on, and develop, a strong sense of personal identity.

Research shows that students participating in the MYP:

  • build confidence in managing their own learning
  • learn by doing, connecting the classroom to the larger world
  • outperform non-IB students in critical academic skills
  • consistently have greater success in IB Diploma Program examinations
  • thrive in positive school cultures where they are engaged and motivated to excel
  • develop an understanding of global challenges and a commitment to act as responsible citizens.

At a time when students are establishing their identity and building their self-esteem, the MYP program can motivate students and help them to achieve success in school and in life beyond the classroom.
