The Philosophy of
Cathedral International School is based on the promotion of
universal values of mankind and excellence of its actions and
behavior, as a way towards a more fair and equitable world.
In our educational processes, we are
mainly constructivist, following the line of thought that promotes, encourages and gives the tools to discover knowledge.
Teachers, according to this view, assist and facilitate the
achievement of learning goals, providing the tools and knowledge, taking in consideration students needs and learning styles.
Our philosophy advocates the importance of school social context
bound to learnig, even during individual activities. It is then, the
teacher responsibility to provide a context where love for working,
responsibility and discipline becomes the platform to fullfil all the
tasks. This platform itself must be to foster the freedom of each
individual and the awareness of his role as a member of a group. We
believe in education that teaches to conceive a man as a social and
In our teaching techniques and methods we recognize, however, the
influence of other educational trends, which although relegated by
behaviorists, can be useful in certain times and learning styles. As
defined by the theory of multiple intelligences, we make efforts every
day to have our educational goals coincide with those areas of talent of
students, taking into account the processes more than the results,
helping them to open their own paths to knowledge construction.
