It is time to reconsider how things work. A school’s methodology must promote curiosity and a love of learning. It is the only way for children to play a leading role in their learning journey.
In more traditional systems, lecture and memorization were the main strategies for teaching new concepts, and the success of a student was measured by test scores.
Our methodology is meant to challenge educational paradigms, truly putting children at the center of the learning process, thereby instilling a deeper understanding of concepts that will be transferable to novel contexts throughout their lives.

Our students learn through practice and experimentation.
They can ascertain that what they learn every day at school can be used in real life situations, positively feeding their motivation.
Significant and meaningful learning is only achieved when motivation is what moves a student and not fear.
We teach and evaluate what we believe are competencies for their future.
Those that are needed in order to solve tomorrow’s challenges: creativity, innovation, complex problem solving and emotional intelligence.
Every one of us is good at something. We all have a little talent that we enjoy doing and feel very motivated to learn.
At Lighthouse American School students, guided by their teachers, discover their talent and start developing it to their fullest potential.
It is widely known that physical activity and playing sports has a positive impact on our health, and additionally improves academic performance.
At our school, activities, classes, and even the spaces are designed to activate body and mind.
We foster the enterprising talent of our students so they become more proactive in their lives.
We want them to pay attention to what is happening around them, feeling moved towards finding creative solutions, being able to understand the importance of learning from their problems.
Each and every one of us stands out in one or more types of intelligence.
For us, it is simple, each child has a different way of learning.
We believe that this diversity directly impacts on the way we must teach our students.
Thus, keeping in consideration the multiple intelligence theory is crucial when learning, since it is what makes our students feel fulfilled and enjoy the experience of learning.
On the other hand, we know that the development of all intelligences is necessary and we enhance each and every one of them.
