In continuity with the training processes at the Preschool and Primary levels and aware of the need to train competent young people who face the demands of today’s society with solid ethical and cognitive bases, we have a relevant curriculum that, assuming national standards, It also addresses international standards.
The appropriation of curricular contents is given through a methodology that encourages autonomous learning, critical thinking and the development of skills and competencies. We approach our process in an integral way and in this sense we emphasize the Character Formation through the Virtues and the precepts of the Christian faith and the Program Your Values Counts (Character Counts). Through the processes of classroom communication, connection, representation, reasoning and testing and problem-solving, mathematical skills are developed in terms of numbers and numerical operations, algebra, geometry, measurement, data analysis, and probability. In Science, the development of scientific thought is fostered, through processes and development of observation skills and identification of the problem question.
The acquisition of the second language is essential in the secondary school and it is for this reason that disciplines and specific subjects are integrated into this language, such as Social Studies, Science up to the 8th grade, Math in 6th and 7th and ICT (Information and Communication Technology). The goal of the school is for students to finish their baccalaureate at a performance level similar to that of the native speaker of that language in both practical environments and in academic settings, which allows them to easily access universities both in the country and in abroad.
The continuous improvement in the state test results Knowing 11 is one of the aspects on which we focus our academic efforts. From grade 9 we apply simulations and perform specialized training for the presentation of the Saber 9 and 11 test. We rely on organizations specialized in the subject for the measurement and review of results and the analysis of specific areas and competencies to improve in each student. Similarly, with students in the 10th and 11th grade, we developed face-to-face sessions where experts and professionals in state tests offer strategies to more assertively approaching the test from each subject evaluated.
High School is the space where we consolidate and conclude the cognitive and training processes that allow us to graduate students with a holistic vision, necessary to face the life and challenges of today’s society.
