Why us?

What is The Workshop? 

The Workshop ™ is a socio-constructivist and progressive program (School) for boys and girls age 1.5 – 14 years old. ( Toddlers – 9th Grade ), which transforms all the ideals of a traditional school education and breaks through the “old-fashion” idea of memorization of data and individual discourse to “show” students learning progression.  Three hundred twenty students attend our program every day, taught by well trained teachers that support their learning development and abilities. Our program has Spanish Language teachers, as well as bilingual and Native English teachers that teach different subjects to different groups throughout the day.

A common school day is divided into two blocks: 3 hours of Spanish lectures and 3 hours of English lectures.

The Workshop´s program, proposes a socio-constructivist environment and method that has evolved year after year through observing and registering students learning processes.

Parallel to the program, an organizational system was created to help optimize timing and goals achievement. The system divides the semester in eight weeks in which proposals are distributed. This system allows teachers to work freely through their objectives without the need to jump from one skill to the other, integrating only the needed skills simultaneously in order to produce good results by using collaborative work among students and the teachers.
