for the future
Lighthouse American school is opening soon. A new inspiring and innovative project in which you could play a main role.
our strength is
in our values
Lighthouse American School aims to put its students in the center, making them become leading actors in their learning processes. We aim to incite their curiosity and desire for experimentation, acquiring deep and significant learning.
We want to guide them through the path of creativity and innovation, towards a brilliant future, all while experiencing a joyous environment.
A step into the future
The world we live in is constantly changing and therefore preparing our students for careers we cannot yet imagine, is essential.
A child´s school life is the first step of the ladder that shall provide a wide variety of opportunities to our students.
The way into innovation
Innovation goes further than new ways of learning and our students are an essential part of it.
We believe schools must adapt and renew their methodologies, this is why we turn our students into agents of change who will lead the innovations of our future.
We are looking for talent. Each and every one of our students has something that motivates them deeply, something in which they can stand out.
We are going to help them find out what it is that moves them and strengthen it.
Although kids are the ones attending school, the whole family is closely involved in their education. This makes us want to be parent’s accomplices, becoming their journey partners and helping them in every way we can in the difficult task of rising a child.
A place to be happy
Through the development of creative and dynamic spaces, encouraging true friendship and working with our emotions, our school becomes a place where children can be happy.
Achieving all these values would be impossible without an outstanding faculty team. We are very aware that teachers play a key role in a school´s everyday life.
Why we are different
Our values are not only pretty words written on a piece of paper. We articulate them through six action plans: the design of the space- both in and outdoors- contents, educational methodology, school´s organization and technology.
We do not ask for teachers and parents to believe in us just out of an act of faith, on the contrary, we are implementing specific initiatives that will support and promote all our values.
Our learning methodology is at the forefront and we use six basic strategies to achieve that: Learn by doing, deep learning, active body – active mind, talent search, skills for the future and undertaking.
