Our Program

An international learning and teaching system...
In which children accumulate knowledge through research, practice, and teamwork guided by a teacher. This model of teaching allows students to make decisions and form opinions based on daily events and information. These projects are a basic tool of their development and an essential part of the learning process.
Our academic plan is based on programs developed by the Department of Education of Mexico, Pearson Digital Platform, and the “Constructive Mathematics” method.
Focus on developing different abilities such as languages, logic, mathematics, creativity, reading comprehension, social and cultural understanding. Classroom time is spent on a variety of activities and recreation that stimulate and guide students towards independent learning.
Throughout the seven grades, our Spanish program teaches students how to read and write in a variety of styles and proficiency levels as well as how to express themselves verbally and write creatively in Spanish.
Students develop the following skills:
  • Use of language for verbal and written communication as well as a tool for learning.
  • Decision-making with sufficient information to communicate and interpret messages.
  • Personal and effective communication.
  • Use of language as a tool to characterize, interpret and understand reality
  • A basic mathematical education helps children and teenagers to develop the following abilities:
  • Thinking processes that will allow them to characterize and accurately express everyday situations.
  • Techniques to recognize, define and solve problems.
  • A positive attitude towards learning, teamwork, and analysis applicable in their personal and social environment.
Bilingual learning and multicultural environment 
Teaching tools such as compass and protractor make learning mathematics a friendly process that will gradually lead to an understanding of abstract concepts.
Communication and learning abilities are taught through a variety of subjects such as Spanish, Ethics and Civics, Nature Exploration, Geography, and History. Results are shared with the school community as part of the evaluation process.
Our “Knowledge Fair” is one of the most eagerly awaited projects. Every year students and their teachers are given a special theme to develop using different academic subjects.
The Monteverde system teaches English using reading comprehension, written and verbal expression with vocabulary building.
Our English program employs the Pearson, New Comerstone 1st to 5ht grade, New Kestone in 6th grade. Grades and system that teaches students English reading skills and then to acquire knowledge from sources written in that language.
The Grant Wiggins approach “Understanding by Design” used at Monteverde aims to make students independent learners who use research to acquire knowledge. One of the system’s priorities is to ensure that students understand how to set learning goals.
The Understanding by Design method guides students through the learning process by teaching them to do research and analyze findings. Total immersion in this program ensures that they develop the English vocabulary and grammatical skills needed for advanced education in that language. Activities include discussions on everyday topics, school subjects while focusing on a student’s ability to speak correctly and fluidly.
The Pearson system provides a personal password-controlled digital platform for each student at www.pearsonsuccessnet.com in which they have access to fun exercises that develop basic knowledge and skills in English.
The Pearson program also contains a library of e-books that teachers can assign for reading on an individual basis.
Throughout the first seven grades, students in the Spanish program learn how to use verbal and written communication in a variety of contexts in accordance with their ability and interests.
Our learning program develops the following abilities:
  • Use of the language for effective verbal and written communication and learning.
  • Decision-making with sufficient information to communicate and interpret messages.
  • Personal and effective communication.
  • Use of language as a tool to characterize, interpret and understand reality.
  • Mathematics as a basic educational tool for children and teenagers.
During their Pre-First year, children are taught reading and writing skills in a second language through the use of songs, games, interaction and musical experiments.
Learning these skills is the basis for acquiring advanced language skills and eventually can lead to a role in the School Play. The entire process is meant to be fun and gets progressively more intense every year until students can eventually write and act in their own play.

Aside from the Play, children are encouraged to participate in many activities for both fun and learning. One favorite is the Spelling Bee, in which students can improve their spelling, vocabulary and overall learning abilities in a fun competitive manner.
Student exchange trips to Canada are a great learning adventure.
Participants get the opportunity to live in small Canadian communities where they can experience first-hand different cultural values and a highly regarded school system, all in English immersion.
