The 1st and 2nd cycles of Middle School offer an opportunity to consolidate academic material learned in previous stages while providing an exciting programme of studies that encourage Public Speaking, STEAM skills, and Creative Arts interests.
Middle School is a period of great transition. In the Middle School environment, the curriculum encourages a more in-depth investigation into learning material, enhancing the capacity for abstraction and application. In addition, Middle School students refine their organisation and collaboration abilities while showing responsibility in their research to account for ethical requirements.

The 6th and 7th grades constitute the 1st cycle of Middle School  and are periods of change and adaptation. At this point, Middle School learners start to take responsibility for their learning practices and contribute to resolving any issues. Understanding how to study and when to ask for help is part of the growth process and is just as important as subject learning. Educators and families must be committed to adopting the elements outlined in the 'Respect' value to help maintain a safe and welcoming community and prevent bullying.

The 8th and 9th grades constitute the second cycle of Middle School. In this cycle, great friendships are formed. School and families are responsible for fostering an environment where the 'Goodness' value is the basis of these friendships. In addition, in the Middle School community, the ​​'Excellence' and 'Responsibility' values are further emphasised.

currículo do fundamental II


6th - 9th grade

The Fundamental Years (6th - 9th grade) curriculum is formed from the BNCC (Base Nacional Curricular Comum) for subjects in Portuguese, and Project AERO, for English language course material.

Subjects learned at this stage include: Portuguese; Language Arts (English); Mathematics; Science; History; Geography; LIV (socio-emotional intelligence); Visual Arts; Creative Tech; Music; Drama; Physical Education; Sports and Public Speaking.


Creative Technology

Solutions to problems in their lives and communities

Students use creative technology tools as a means of exploring topics in this subject area, as well as setting personal learning goals. They must choose the most appropriate resources to achieve their creative learning objectives while applying an informed design process to improve prototypes and build solutions to problems that affect their lives and communities.

 Pedagogical Routine

Middle School pupils from 6th to 9th grade have a schedule incorporating different subjects and teachers. The school day has 55-minute lessons (occasionally 30-minutes long) taught in English or Portuguese. The Middle School's daily timetable includes rest and meal breaks in the morning, at lunchtime, and in the afternoon.



Life Intelligence Lab

In addition to the increased academic demand, students experience profound moments of physical and emotional transformation that are characteristic of adolescence. At this stage, the development of socio-emotional skills becomes even more indispensable.

The curriculum for this age group continues their journey of emotional development, which is developed in previous grades and is complemented with six personal and interpersonal skills: perseverance, creativity; critical thinking; proactiveness; communication and collaboration.

Class Without Walls

Class Without Walls

pedagogical trip

The school is committed to highlighting issues that exist beyond its walls. In addition to acquiring academic knowledge onsite, research indicates that children's social relationships and engagement are reinforced exponentially with excursions outside the school environment.

To reflect the needs of learners in our Middle School stage, once a year, the school organises a week-long CWW (Class Without Walls) programme, where students have the option of taking a pedagogical trip. In addition to creating unforgettable moments and memories for our learning community, CWW supports the development of autonomy, organisation, and collaboration skills.
