The Montessori environment involves grouping children of different ages in the same classroom to help them develop key abilities at their own pace. This philosophy is based on designed materials that provide a hands-on approach to learning. Each child works with self-selected material guided by their intrinsic motivation, their age group, their unique characteristics, and being closely supervised by a certified Montessori guide.
Pre-First to 5th grade
Pre-First is a year of transition from Preschool to Elementary at Peterson Schools. The importance of this grade is that students develop strong English language skills to solidify their bilingual education later in Elementary. All academic subjects are taught in English.
In elementary we follow a constructivist educational model, which is a method that is based on the idea that children actively construct and develop their own knowledge through curiosity, research, and collaborative work. Since the first grade, fifty percent of the subjects are taught in English and fifty percent in Spanish.
6th to 8th grade
We make sure our evaluation system is up to international standards via the Measure of Academic Program (MAP) exams provided by the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA). Our classes include Science, Biology, Physics, Digital Innovation, Social Studies, English, Spanish, Math, Geography, Mexican History, World History, and Visual & Performing Arts.
Additionally, we have a very robust advisory curriculum where we integrate the socio-emotional development of our students with their academic one.
9th to 12th grade
Our students begin their High School journey, 9th and 10th grades, under the University of Cambridge IGCSE program, which empowers them by allowing them to choose from a wide variety of courses, giving the opportunity for each student to select their path between different electives, such as Computer Science, Design Technology, Global Perspective and World History. This promotes being more responsible for their education and having the opportunity to achieve their full potential in subjects they are particularly affectionate.
All of our 11th and 12th grade students undertake the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme; a curriculum made up of college-level courses within six subject groups. It is an academically challenging and balanced program that addresses the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students, and is recognized by most universities across the globe.
