The first grade of Secondary school plays a decisive role in the transition of young teenagers. It must follow the transformation of students ending primary school who are still children, into empathetic and responsible adolescents.
Children who would listen to what they were told in primary school, now constantly question what is proposed to them, requiring explanations.
A school must not disregard this need of curiosity, but embrace and mould it, giving it purpose and meaning.
The school must encourage the development of passionate reasoning, the capacity to know and attest the sense of things, urging all to use their freedom and initiative.
A school, that pays attention to the growth of the individual, must have an extremely flexible educational and organisational setting.
Students are entitled to:
Use time for personal study
A timetable that allows the student to reflect on the topics discussed in class and make them their own
A timetable that enables internalising of the subject matter through repetition, practice and re-working of the contents
An OPEN SCHOOL that ensures the presence of teachers during the afternoon time slots, who are ready to assist students with the re-working, recovery and expansion of the subject matter.
Our typical day is structured as follows:
Workshops for detailed study and consolidation are optional.
Meals: Children will have lunch at school with their teachers, and dietary requirements can be catered for.
Educational trips have a strong didactic and educational importance and form part of the annual programming. Each year, students are involved in least two experiences abroad at partner schools.
