Preschool (ages 1-6)
- First cycle:
- 2nd year – ages 1-2 (Bears).
- 3rd year – ages 2-3 (Ducks).

All of our preschool stages follow the SUNRISE methodology, in which children are the protagonists. Each child builds their own learning experience through scenarios, projects, games, experiments, collaborative learning and problem-based learning. This methodology allows students to enjoy their learning process, thus fostering each student’s intrinsic motivation and sustained attention, both of which are key components of knowledge acquisition.
Primary school (ages 6 -12)
The school currently has dual single-sex programmes for each age from the 1st to the 6th years of primary school. Same-sex classroom instruction is employed at all levels. Non-teaching activities, including play time and dining, are mixed. We make optimal use of both modalities. Our students receive single-sex classroom instruction, while recreational spaces, canteens, extracurricular activities, cultural outings, etc. are mixed. This system strengthens personal bonds between students, while also giving siblings more opportunities for interaction in their daily school routine.
Our primary and secondary programmes follow the SUNRISE pedagogical methodology, which is based on teaching by competences: not only does it provide students with knowledge, but it also enables them to apply it at any time and in any area of their lives.
- Self-knowledge and formation for positive coexistence and leadership.
- Physical and social environment.
- Communication, reasoning and artistic sensibility.
- Single-sex classroom instruction:
Single-sex instruction is an innovative feature found in some of today’s leading educational models. Based on the notion that educational objectives are the same for boys and girls, single-sex education uses a specialised teaching style for each sex which takes into account their specific qualities and maturation rates and hence ensures true equality of opportunity. We place the children in different classrooms to optimise their development and learning potential.
