Escuela Lomas Altas has three goals:
- To promote in students the acquisition of acceptable social behaviour such as teamwork, empathy and cooperation.
- To help them deal with the world around them through the application of an inquiry based curriculum, profiting from different academic subjects.
- To discover the world within themselves through the process of reflection on their daily experiences.
To attain these different goals, students must acquire knowledge and skills of self-control through which they are able to feel competent, secure and have the ability to be assertive, no matter the context.
Escuela Lomas Altas is a private institution whose mission is to provide its students with the skills, concepts and attitudes necessary for their integral development. Our inquiry-based curriculum validates the students’ prior knowledge, capitalizes on children’s curiosity, fulfills the desire to take an active role in their own learning and gives free rein to their creativity. The teacher becomes facilitator, recognizing individual learning styles and both adjusts and creates activities to accommodate these differences. We believe learning should be fun and is most effective in a highly-personalized environment. To achieve the latter we have chosen to remain a small school.
