Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Maryel School of New York is an independent, bilingual English/Spanish, and co- educational school, educating children from Nursery through Fifth Grade.
Located in the heart of Manhattan, Maryel is a harmonious combination of the educational system of the United States and Spain. The mission of Maryel is to educate girls and boys “to be the best they can be and thrive in their lives beyond Maryel by trusting that they are unique human beings who can accomplish anything”

Teaching approach of the school

Maryel´s Educational Philosophy is based on these fundamentals:
1- Multiple Intelligence Approach:
In recent years, new definitions of intelligence have gained acceptance and have dramatically enhanced the appraisal of human competencies.

Verbal/linguistic intelligence
Logical/mathematical intelligence
Spatial Intelligence
Musical Intelligence
Kinesthetic Intelligence
Interpersonal Intelligence
Intrapersonal Intelligence
Naturalistic Intelligence

Maryel develops ways to teach and learn by engaging all eight intelligences increasing the possibilities for student success.

We are all able to know the world through these intelligences, where each student differs is in the strength of these intelligences.

Because there are no two students that learn in the same way, Maryel applies this approach as a base for our pedagogy. With this inclusive practice, the skills, abilities, gifts and different intelligences of each student are taken care of and strengthened.

All of the students can be apprentices of success. There are no limits to what one can learn at a certain age. The teacher’s role also transforms in this type of program. Maryel’s teachers develop skills different from those they would develop by standing in front of a class lecturing each day. Maryel’s teachers observe their students from eight new perspectives
2- Bilingual Education
For much of the twentieth century it seemed possible that English could become the world language, it is now clear that we are moving into a multicultural and multilingual world. English looks set to remain the universal language; however, being able to speak and write in only one language is no longer sufficient.

Maryel Dual Language is a form of education that provides content instruction and literacy to all students through two languages, English and Spanish.
Our Model:

The Spanish language is used all day in the primary grades (Preschool), English and Spanish are used equally in the later grades (Kindergarten-Fifth Grade). Both literacy and content are taught in Spanish and in English over the course of the program. Instruction is delivered in one language at a time without translation. Maryel teachers maintain separation of languages for instruction (no translation).

Skills taught in each language are coordinated to maximize cross-linguistic transfer and support learning in content areas.
The results:

Maryel students have greater cognitive flexibility, advanced problem solving skills, higher order abstract thinking abilities, and increased creativity. They also show advanced abilities to connect meaning between languages and cognitively make “more room” in the brain for new information.

Children who study in two languages consistently outscore monolingual students on standardized tests. Maryel students have a greater success in an educational setting and have the added benefit of greater ease in learning a third language
