Philosophy

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 active entity. 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. Our Mission Forming critical, creative and competitive human beings, committed to excellence and the practice of human values, supported by a comprehensive, technological and cutting edge curriculum as well as an educational community identified with our proposal. Our Vision To be recognized within our school community and society as a model school among the educational institutions of our country. To promote technological, cultural and environmental development, being a modern, dynamic and innovative institution. To develop the value of excellence in each member of our school, shown in the actions of each of them.
