Teaching approach of the school

The Primary Education Program called PEP (“Programa de Escuela Primaria”) is an trans-disciplinary programme of international education, designed to promote children’s integral development. Its purpose is to encourage a complete and all- round development, focussing on students’ social, physical, emotional and cultural needs, as well as their academic potential. The philosophy of the Primary Education Programme has a direct influence on our young students, which goes on to be expressed in a series of personal attributes and qualities ideal for a student with an international perspective.
