At the Primary Education phase, our pupils’ objectives are academic, and we focus on their incorporation into culture, and their autonomy. At Agora Lledó International School we use a personal methodology, and understand how to adapt this to each child’s different pace of learning, especially for those who show some type of difficulty.
At this stage, the children hone their personality, master skills and knowledge to do with oral expression and comprehension, reading, writing and sums. They also develop social skills, work and study habits, a feeling for art, creativity and emotion, all of which are vital to ensure their success both in later educational phases and to help them develop as people.
In the Primary Education phase, our three basic pillars are our Bilingual Programme, (50% of the subjects taught in English) and the introduction of German into the curriculum, Musical Development (4 class hours as well as participation in concerts and musical events) and Sports (Physical Education and water activities). The pupils also make great progress in the use of new technologies for educational purposes.
Moreover, one of the greatest assets of Agora Lledó International School is our Tutors. Every pupil is looked after and guided by their tutor at all times while they are at school, which creates a safe and comfortable environment. The children are continually evaluated and observed by our Guidance Department in order to identify any problems which may arise and work towards their resolution. Throughout the school year, our tutors communicate daily with our families via the pupils’ agendas, email, or the CAV (our digital platform).
Agora Lledó International School is applying for the Primary Years Program (PYP) of the International Baccalaureate (IB) and is a pioneer in the implementation of the PYP in the province Castellón. IB schools have a common philosophy that is based on the commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive student community through the delivery of high quality international education programs that share a powerful vision. This inquiry-based methodology develops the social and thinking, communication, self-management and research skills of the students.
“Our daughter started at this school when she was 17 months old, and now that she is beginning a new stage in her education, Secondary, we see reflected in her the teaching of all these years. Thanks to the international outlook she has acquired at school, she took part in an exchange to Paris when she was 10, and we gained some new French friends. A highly recommended experience.”
