The purpose of the Spanish Department at our school is for our students and community to actively participate in a world that is constantly being built through the senses and perspectives that communicate in it.
We hope that our students are protagonists in the conversation with the world in which they live and will live. This is achieved through the understanding and connection of the different perspectives and dimensions that are integrated in the learning process. It is in the experience of knowing, feeling and thinking where identity, bilingualism and tradition converse with innovation and the future that is projected.
To this end, a constant articulation of the different programs that organize our curricular structure is essential. This is how personal and collaborative learning is embodied in a daily educational reality that incorporates sensitivity, solidarity and the search for a better world for humanity.
We are aware of the transversal nature of language as a support for knowledge and as a construction tool for doing and knowing how to do in other areas of learning. Therefore, we consider interdisciplinary links and critical thinking as fundamental to help shape the vision of tomorrow’s reality.
Finally, all of the above makes sense when we understand that this department vision is a challenge that invites us to be in permanent change.
