Prime School offers our students the opportunity to experience, learn and socialize in a multicultural environment, at no other time in life do children have a greater capacity to learn than during adolescence.
At this stage, from 11 to 15 years old, students enter a new phase of learning, our aim is to maintain adult influence while we emphasize interdisciplinarity and provide a global and view of current events. In our famous secondary I and II, students develop projects with a focus on research, development and investigation.
Our Secondary school teachers believe in the potential of each and every student. They differentiate instruction by using learning, assessment, and communication tools to discover each student's strengths, weaknesses and work collaboratively with families to establish individual academic goals and learning plans.
In Secondary 1 we continue the work developed in the primary school, where "Hands-on'' is fundamental, where planning a project, creating a work team, exchanging knowledge and ideas, and achieving it is our primary objective. In Secondary 2 students, we incentivize students to become more autonomous and independent, by working on innovation, technology and creativity in various fields such as robotics, joinery, weaving, electronics, which contribute to the improvement of their mathematical, linguistic, physical and environmental techniques, with teachers alongside them, facilitating, guiding and showing them that learning can be both demanding and exciting.
