Middle School

Middle School is composed of three sections for a total 9 classes. Each class consists of approximately 20 students. Each class is arranged in 39 lessons weekly. The lessons are held from Monday to Thursday, 8:20am to 4:25pm and Friday from 8:20am to 3:35pm. Middle School enriches and consolidates knowledge of the English language acquired in previous years, and integrates the National guidelines with a more detailed study of the English language, in particular in Science in English.

The curriculum is further enhanced by the following educational programs:

    • One hour of Latin a week for the three years of Middle School
    • Further in depth study in the English language with mother tongue English teachers. In addition to the 3 lessons a week foreseen by the National Guideline students are offered 6 hours of English, 2 hours of Science and Geography for a total of 12 hours of study a week in English. At the end of the cycle students sit for the Preliminary English Test (PET) held by the British Council.
    • 3 hours of Spanish a week, instead of the 2 lessons stipulated in the National Guidelines taught by Spanish, mother-tongue teachers.  Students sit for the B1 Livel Inicial diploma held by Istituto Cervantes.

In this delicate phase of their development the students find an atmosphere of serenity that stimulates and assists them in their growth. Laboratory classes, Information Technology, Art and Image classes enhanced by numerous cultural excursions, Physical Education, drama, and sports tournaments play a fundamental and educational role.
