Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Pinecrest International School mission is "the complete, integral formation of the young in cooperation with their parents, in order to provide society with constructive leaders, convinced builders of the civilization of justice and love, according to the principles of Christian humanism."

We have established and made this vision our own involving administrators, support staff, teachers, parents and Legionaries of Christ, and it is defined as follows: "Pinecrest International School is an institution dedicated to develop a high academic level in our students according to international standards, offering personalized attention, using technological resources in an ethical and productive manner, forming solid spiritual, human, intellectual and apostolic values in our students".

Teaching approach of the school

Our competency-based academic program achieves that students are able to relate what they learn in school with what they see in their daily and academic life, thus developing the reasoning addressed to problem-solving and decision-making.

Competency-based education focuses on learning, not teaching, and its approach is a fundamental tool in our model of integral formation, since it promotes knowledge, self-learning, formation of intellectual abilities and, above all, the formation of virtues and values.

The aim of the educational approach by competencies is that the student applies his knowledge, skills and attitudes in different learning contexts or environments. To accomplish this, different methodologies for learning are used, for example projects, problem-based learning, design of learning environments, case resolution, among others. In all of them, the active and proactive participation of the student is indispensable, because he must show the integration of intellectual, social, personal and emotional skills.

When we speak of competency-based education, we refer to the type of teaching that helps students think, in order for them to be people of good and consequently act not only in their own profit but also in the profit of others. We assume that learning is the main responsibility of the student. We focus on projecting the student as the main protagonist and as responsible for his own learning process, guided and motivated by a trainer who may impel him to give his maximum effort to develop his potential.

Collaborative work is an essential element in our educational model, since it helps students develop skills required in an increasingly globalized society.
