Message From the Principal

Kids are humankind’s treasure and participating in their formative process is a privilege. At the Atid School, we want our kids to be happy so that, being proud of their identity and community, they develop into creative, critical, and reflexive leaders capable of working as a team in favor of others. 

At the Atid Elementary, kids find a safe and stimulating space in which they can express themselves naturally, where everyone is recognized, valued, and treated with respect and love. Kids live fun and interesting learning experiences that they enjoy and learn from every day. 

Today’s world demands a lot, the Elementary School Program from IB keep us at the forefront given that it brings our students the curricular frame in which multilingualism, the development of skills, and the formation of positive attitudes allow them to use every resource and technology they have at their disposal to become apprentices for their whole life.

Overview

Elementary School continues to care for and promote the natural curiosity inherent in children. Within the framework of the bilingual PYP (IB Primary Years Programme) curriculum, teachers work together to design transdisciplinary programs and projects that stimulate the questioning process and the sense of discovery.

As children grow, their critical judgment matures and they are encouraged to think more conceptually. Elementary School offers kids simulations of and contact with real-life situations in which learning is more significant. Students learn and practice socialization skills in a non-threatening atmosphere. They are encouraged to become both independent learners and effective team members who strengthen the foundations of their Mexican-Jewish identity.

Curriculum

Our goal is to develop intellectual, individual, and social skills through a personalized educational pedagogy. Students acquire a construction of knowledge and skills essential to develop understanding and competent performance. Our teaching staff focuses their expertise and professionalism on student learning to help form a sense of identity and social awareness. An attitude of inquiry in the pursuit of learning and self-improvement is encouraged in the classroom. The PYP curriculum integrates essential knowledge, concepts, skills, and attitudes. Similarly, the learning and teaching processes include academic and non-academic activities, all offered by the school. The following elements comprise our Elementary School Plan:

Knowledge: the organization of relevant information, topics, facts, and data with which our students should be familiar.

Concepts: Transcendent and important ideas within the different disciplinary areas that students inquire about for better understanding.

Skills and competencies: Abilities that students develop, use, and improve in the cognitive, social, research, self-management, and communication fields.

Attitudes: Willingness to express values, beliefs, and feelings toward themselves, their community, their families, their country, and the world.

The Elementary School curriculum is divided into seven major subject areas:

  • Languages
  • Math
  • Natural Sciences
  • Social Sciences
  • Literature
  • Personal, social, and physical education
  • Judaism

In addition, the Atid School encourages the development of students’ linguistic potential by promoting learning through languages. Students learn English while studying subjects in English; Spanish proficiency is achieved during academic activities and collaboration. Students establish a deep bond with their Mexican-Jewish identity through the study of basic Hebrew.

Constant contact with technology has impacted our world and presents an incredible opportunity for learning and expressing ideas; it connects us with people from other cultures and countries, allowing us to discover the reality of human nature that we all share.
