When you are in your teenage years are consciously experiencing everything for the first time, so adolescent stories are all beginnings. There are never any endings.

Research-based approach

Teenage years are a key phase in children’s education, along with the physical changes teenagers experience, their brains develop rapidly. The research-based approach of Lomas Hill in Elementary School continues on in Middle School. Research assignments are a key part of the curriculum, as they help learners develop self- confidence, collaborative skills and different perspectives.

Global awareness

At Lomas Hill our students develop cultural awareness and sensitivity through learning experiences adopting global points of view. The curriculum is developed around six global contexts that foster an international mindset and global engagement, in particular:

  • Identities and relationships.
  • Space and time orientation.
  • Personal and cultural expression.
  • Scientific and technical innovation.
  • Globalization and sustainability.
  • Justice and development.

Conceptual understanding

Our learners follow a curriculum that includes English, Spanish and French, mathematics, science, design, civics, financial fundamentals, geography, history, art, physical education, social and emotional understanding, and study and organizational skills. This comprehensive and balanced curriculum focuses on great ideas, develops conceptual understanding and allows students to link their learning through interdisciplinary projects, which encourages them to explore and develop their areas of interest. We encourage that they become what they aspire to become in the best possible way.

Learning to Serve

"Learning to Serve" is a key component of children’s education at Lomas Hill. All Middle
School learners are involved in community service initiatives. In 9th grade, learners complete
a community project either individually or in collaboration with a small group of peers.
The skills that students develop throughout Middle School allow them to take ownership of
this project and investigate an area of need within the community, plan their project,
take action, and reflect on the impact their project has on the community.
