We aim to develop intellectual, personal and social skills by means of a personalized educational pedagogy. The students acquire a construct of knowledge and essential skills to develop comprehension and competent performance. Our teaching personnel center their experience and professionalism on the students’ learning to help form a sense of identity and social awareness. An attitude of inquiry in search of learning and self-improvement is promoted in the classrooms. The Elementary School PYP curriculum integrates essential knowledge, concepts, abilities and attitudes. Similarly, learning and teaching processes include both academic and non-academic activities all offered by the school. The following elements comprise our Elementary School Plan:
Knowledge: The organization of information, topics, facts, and relevant data with which our students must be familiar.
Concepts: Transcendent and important ideas within the different disciplinary areas that students enquire about for a better understanding.
Skills and competencies: Abilities students develop, use and improve in the cognitive, social, investigation, self-management and communication fields.
Attitudes: Disposition to express values, beliefs and feelings towards themselves, their community, their families, their country and the world.
The Elementary School Curriculum is divided into seven main disciplinary areas:
Personal, Social and Physical Education
In addition, Atid School encourages the development of the students’ linguistic potential, promoting learning through the language. Students learn English as they study subjects in English; Spanish mastery is accomplished during academic activities and collaboration. Students establish a profound bond with their Mexican-Jewish identity through the study of basic Hebrew.
