Being a school with small groups allows us to observe atypical or aggressive behavior between students that could compromise the physical or emotional integrity of the students. The principal and Psychological Department works in conjunction with the faculty to identify and follow up on any possible case of bullying.
We work in small independent groups or work centers. The teacher interacts and supervises each group in 15 minute intervals.
We have integration activities and work in small groups while the student is adapting to school.
