Middle School

General Principles

Middle School provides continuity to the work done in the previous years, by taking on a very humanistic approach. The students are introduced into new working groups, encouraging new relational experiences among peers and with the new pedagogical team that continues to be cohesive, kind, committed and extremely capable.  

Form teachers and educational teams foster consistent and thorough work using differentiated teaching methods, striving for success while treating each student as a unique and independent being. We are an interdependent team committed to a multi-subject approach. Our mission is to improve the quality of teaching and overall success.

Students are encouraged to work autonomously and is adapted to a context of greater academic precision. The student is challenged to take a proactive and critical role in the Teaching-Learning process, emphasizing his/her contribution, through responsibility and freedom towards value and growth.

At the curriculum level, the degree of complexity of the contents and topics covered increases, as well as the intellectual and relational challenge, providing students with an experience of diversified activities that are extremely enriching, from an educational point of view.

Group work and communication in several languages continue to be worked on, in turn encouraging a collaborative attitude, where the ability to solve problems, critical spirit, divergent and analytical thinking and digital literacy continue to be part of the strategies that support learning and inclusion.

Due to its multicultural school ethos, good relational habits, sports, arts and the specific knowledge of the various subject areas are a constantly present in a context of permanent adaptation to current pedagogical models, and without ever losing our deep attachment to culture and classical studies.

The dynamic settings of the classroom, the sessions of re-education and reinforcement of their subject matter, as well as the sessions promoting skills within the methods and study techniques, contribute to the acquisition of progressively more consolidated skills, preparing students in full for Secondary School.

The School Guidance and Professional Counselling, conducted during the 9th grade, offer relevant information regarding the student’s functional and skills profile, thus supporting the student, at the time of his / her subjects/course choice.

The English language has a very significant part in this teaching value, as its role assumes an extensive curriculum.

The work started in Junior School continues, oral and written communication is stimulated, with the aim of providing students with the specific skills for fluent and effective communication.

At the end of each school year, students are able to successfully take the University of Cambridge international certification exams, with the F.C.E. exam (First Certificate in English), typically taken in grade 9.
