The International Baccalaureate and the American curriculum at Casvi International American School have been going hand in hand for the past five years. The International Baccalaureate is an educational method for students between the ages of 3 and 18. This methodology aims to stimulate students to be able to think critically and independently and to inquire with logic and sense. It aims to form citizens who can face current and future challenges in an increasingly globalized and changing society.
In our center we implement this methodology through the three IB programs (PYP, MYP and DP). Within these programs the Theory of Multiple Intelligences, Emotional Intelligence and Early Stimulation are integrated.
At Casvi International American School we have a continuum of the three IB programs (PYP, MYP and DP). This continuum is designed to train students to be well-rounded individuals who are able to face today’s challenges with an open mind.
The continuum of IB programs provides students with an international education to achieve their academic and personal goals. They also acquire a set of values, skills, multiple competencies and content that enable them to develop.
The International Baccalaureate methodology is a leap in quality for the students who receive it. It adds a plus to the content through the realization of both group and individual work that aims to work, reason and draw their own conclusions through continuous learning. Students in IB schools receive an education through which:
-Critical thinking is encouraged.
-They are able to relate to anyone in the world.
-They are more aware of cultural differences.
-They have access to any university in the world.
-They direct their learning.
At Casvi International American School, we combine the International Baccalaureate methodology with the American curriculum. This offers an optimal model for students because it provides them with a unique and flexible environment in which to develop the skills necessary to excel in any subject and to develop their talents and potential.
The International Baccalaureate methodology requires that teachers at Casvi International American School possess certain competencies and skills: they must be internationally minded and open-minded and develop their global competence on a daily basis.
The characteristics that an IB teacher must have are:
-Attitude of continuous learning.
-Knowledge of the teaching-learning process, their content area and the world.
-Solidarity and understanding.
-Creativity in the teaching process.
Fostering IB talent is something we work on every day at our school. For us it is fundamental to develop the creativity of our students. We do this thanks to the IB methodology through which students explore beyond the basic contents.
But at Casvi International American School, we also encourage this talent through sports, art and music. According to the International Baccalaureate Organization, the theoretical and practical learning of different sports and artistic disciplines is fundamental for the development of the students.
