Elementary School is constructivist, secular, co-educational, bilingual and multicultural. Our Elementary is incorporated with the Mexican Education Secretariat (SEP) and accredited by the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS). Classes are completely bilingual; fifty percent of the modules are taught in English and fifty percent in Spanish.
Our program is led by the IPC (International Primary Curriculum). It is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum with a clear process of learning and with specific learning goals for international mindedness. One of the main core ideals is personal learning based on the pillars of cooperation, communication, thoughtfulness, respect, resilience and morality.
We also follow the Common Core Standards, an educational initiative that details what students should know in English Language, Arts, and Mathematics at the end of a school grade.
The Peterson Schools provide opportunities for students to develop their leadership skills and values. They do so through a PBL (Project Based Learning) curriculum. Students are encouraged to demonstrate their progress twice a year to teachers and parents via Student-Led Conferences. This empowers our students to take responsibility for their educational progress.
Technology and Innovation
Students are immersed in fostering their creativity through the use of digital tools. In addition to the google workspace, each student develops digital skills and abilities, across key content areas such as math, literacy, and science. Coding and programming are offered as an opportunity to cultivate computational thinking.
Design Technology is an innovative trend in which students design, build and shape their own ideas. In this space students must share resources and knowledge while collaborating in the elaboration of products following the design model.
