Pedagogical model

Pedagogical model - Gimnasio Fontana

“Our pedagogical model is innovative because we have kept what is valuable from traditional approaches, but have adopted new practices to educate with creativity, responsibility and assertiveness.” – Amparo Triana. Head Teacher

We look at each individual from a humanistic point of view,  and this allows us to develop a pedagogical model focused on the construction of an ethical life-project for each student. Students build this project through self-awareness, identifying and developing their talents and abilities. 

Our pedagogical model is based on:

Nuestro modelo pedagógico es innovador porque hemos rescatado de la tradición lo valioso y hemos adoptado nuevas prácticas para afrontar con creatividad, responsabilidad y asertividad la labor de educar.
