Here at Colegio Internacional de la Subbética we respect the natural rhythm of each student, we identify their individual abilities and use this to maximising their involvement in the projects. We want to foster a love and respect for nature, in keeping with this we believe that learning is not tied to a classroom and therefore we hold our workshops and classes in a variety of different spaces, both in and out of the school.
Our educational program utilises the most innovative and scientifically proven methods available: our curriculum focuses on Montessori pedagogy, as well as tools such as the Flipped Classroom, Design Thinking, Project Based Learning and Collaborative learning amongst others.
The foundations of children’s learning begin with self-sufficiency. The child must learn to love and stand up for her/himself. This is achieved through the freedom of movement and exploration within a safe, supportive and ordered environment. We work on autonomy and self-sufficiency through individualised learning from the first day of school.
The effective learning does not come from external factors, but from the individual’s internal development that is a fanned by the child’s surroundings. The inner sensitivity of the student must not encounter obstacles and the environment must be adapted to the educational needs. Our main objective as educators is to observe and stimulate in order to meet the specific educational needs of each individual. Each student follows their own learning path to reach their maximum potential.
The future needs independent, hard-working, creative thinkers who are fully prepared to work in the global community. A community where English and new technologies are fundamental. We must not forget other qualities which are also growing in importance: being socially apt, sensitive to the environmental and artistic.
For this reason, when maximising the acquisition of knowledge and skills it is necessary to take into account multiple intelligences, by allowing the teaching styles and strategies to adapt and evolve depending on each individual learner.
For example, if students are interested in the universe or space, all other activities and subjects could be related in one way or another to those topics:
