Pedagogical Structure: Sections and Areas
The mission of the Gimnasio Moderno is to educate students comprehensively to allow children and adolescents to find their own light in the school. Its vision is that this environment of trust and freedom, creativity, love for knowledge and personal effort, fellowship and autonomy, exchange with the world and knowledge of their country, will allow our graduates to be leaders in the university and in their lives, to stand out in society as examples of freedom and honesty, as people capable of building innovation and democracy together with others wherever they are.
For this comprehensive education our students go through a fourteen years path, where the areas and sections work intensively together for their development and learning. The Gimnasio Moderno has four sections: the Preschool, which goes from Montessori I to First; the Primary, which goes from Second to Fifth grade; the Middle School, from Sixth to Ninth grade; and finally, the Fourth Section or High School, which covers the last two grades, tenth and eleventh. With the exception of the Fourth Section, each Section comprises four years. This path is in turn developed transversally by the areas of knowledge, which are responsible for structuring the contribution of these disciplines at the level that children and adolescents are studying.
