GRESOL International-American School is an accredited school to offer the International Baccalaureate, a higher education for our students that thoroughly prepares them with innovative methods, which opens the doors to the most prestigious universities. We have already explained what the IB is, as well as the many advantages it offers. But what is the teaching style that is the base of the International Baccalaureate?
The education in accredited IB schools around the world is based on some strengths:
- System totally centered on the student.
- Effective teaching and learning approaches are developed.
- Education takes place within global contexts, including international languages and cultures.
- Meaningful content is explored, developing a disciplinary and interdisciplinary understanding that meets rigorous international standards.
These strengths are complemented by more systems and innovative learning methodologies, besides the fact that each center also has its structure and teaching system based on different principles. In Gresol’s case, the educational method focuses on immersion in English, science, technology, and the arts. In addition, Gresol has a clear commitment to essential values, such as respect, teamwork, empathy, or work ethic.
Objective: to help explore and build identities
The education of the International Baccalaureate uses dynamic cycles of inquiry, action, and reflection to help students and schools transform during learning. It seeks to enhance the students’ capacity as the learning approaches necessary to achieve academic and personal success are developed. The goal is always, in the end, to empower students to explore, inquire, and be curious; In addition, they can build their own personal and cultural identities.
To this purpose, teaching the International Baccalaureate has a shared educational philosophy, celebrating the many ways in which people work together to construct meaning and understand the world. The IB empowers young people for lifelong learning, at all levels, and in all forms, either individually or in collaboration with others. This is also because of the shared values that founded the IB education, such as solidarity, reflection, or open-mindedness.
