It is time to reconsider how things work. A school’s methodology must promote curiosity and the love to learn. It is the only way children may play a leading role in their learning.
In more traditional systems, memorizing concepts is a basic tool used to teach new concepts. The success of a student used to be measured by test results rather than instilling a deeper understanding -concepts that will be transferable in the long run.
Our methodology is meant to change educational paradigms, where children are really the center of the learning process.
Lighthouse is an American institution with its feet in Europe that seeks and promotes academic excellence.
High academic results are important, but we believe education should go a step further. We truly believe we must educate our students in an environment where social/emotional intelligence promotes a favorable learning environment where we can create learning experiences that shape their personalities.

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.

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.

We foster the enterprising talent among our students so they become more proactive in their lives.

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.
