Authentic Learning

Learning is a visible process. Our Middle School students’ school experience
happens in the form of personalized learning, collaboration, and opportunities
in which different teachers work together on the same subject.

The integration of subjects aims to stimulate sustainable and independent learning, critical thinking, decision making and ethical discussions that prepare students to be responsible for their learning journey.

Each project aims to develop the student’s capacity to understand a bigger concept,
strength and expand competencies while promoting character principles for life.

Coding

Students have a chance to really understand how the digital world works, while developing skills such as problem-solving, logic, math and creativity.

Personalized Learning

Personalized Learning


Our curriculum includes elective courses in which students may choose unique subjects focusing on their areas of interest. Thus, they may explore different strands of knowledge, allowing them to build a curriculum based on the path they want to follow in their future careers. The courses are taught on a quarterly and semesterly rotation or year long duration, offering a variety of activities that go beyond academic subjects, from arts and technology to political and environmental concerns.

Language Support

Language Support


Our Language Support program is divided between EAL (English as an Additional Language) and PAL (Portuguese as an Additional Language). EAL aims to adapt the student who has little or no knowledge of English, using academic content to develop cognitive skills in a second language. The PAL program aims international student integration through the language and local culture.
