The Lomas Hill bicultural model prepares young learners not only to develop knowledge and skills in English as a first language, but also placing the same emphasis in Spanish language teachings. Bilingual children achieve higher concentration levels, better problem-solving skills and higher self-esteem. Beyond providing the ability to speak the language, being bicultural provides us with the social skills required to coexist and do well amongst different cultures and backgrounds.
As a school authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization, our students learn to think for themselves and to take responsibility for their learning processes. Knowledge is not a good word to use as we focus on developing skills and understanding. Knowledge is largely superfluous to students’ learning
We seek to form socially-responsible individuals to maintaining a balanced life between intellectual, physical and emotional aspects of life. Our aim is to enlighten young individuals with a variety of modern values including honesty, tolerance, and cheerfulness, bringing about the best of their individual capabilities during their development at Lomas Hill.
We support and promote healthy and pleasant relationships amongst students, teachers, parents, and society. We work to integrate diverse backgrounds, ideals, cultures, and experiences into our classrooms to enrich our community, the heart of Lomas Hill.
In our view, every child is unique and deserves personalized experience and attention. We are committed to ensuring that all our students receive the support and the academic, social, and emotional tools that allow them to enhance their skills and capabilities to ultimately achieve their goals. We have an integrated approach focused on social and emotional development. Our psychopedagogy team works with all our teachers to discuss the progress of each child to identify opportunities and ways to support their learning and development.
In addition, teachers focus on the interests, progress, and proficiency profile of each child to provide them the unique support and attention that each child requires. Notwithstanding, all children in grades 1 to 9 take the MAP Test at least twice a year, which allows us to identify their potential, strengths and areas of opportunity in comparison to other students around the world.
