In this cycle, our students begin to develop higher learnings and skills, consolidating the autonomy and tools necessary to face increasingly ambitious challenges towards the end of it. They are also active participants in an arduous study program, being rigor, responsibility and honesty values that are permanently instilled throughout their development.
The students face the great majority of their class hours in English, strengthening the bilingualism characteristic of our school each day further. Likewise, our professional team works together to ensure that each student develops their highest potential through academic programs that motivate and drive knowledge, problem solving, critical thinking, language skills and mainly love for knowledge, science, literature and the arts.
Along with the above, a complete outdoor education program is developed that seeks to strengthen values and the integral development of our students, highlighting the outing to Portillo and the trip to the north, activities both that have the objective of facing situations that lead them to reflect on teamwork and the value of friendship and companionship.
