Metodologia Ativa

Active Methodology

high engagement during class


We believe that consistent effort is fundamental to learning. Therefore, our students learn through a series of activities and projects that require high engagement during class. They are supported by attentive teachers who guide them through the curriculum. 

For the majority of the time, classes are participatory. Students "produce" outcomes to effectively engage with their learning objectives and demonstrate their understanding, as opposed to a traditional class where the student is passive. 

Typically, classes are seated in small groups to facilitate group discussions and learning exchanges. Below is a list of the pedagogical practices within our school:

Bilingualism

Escola Eleva is a Brazilian bilingual school


Our focus is to prepare students for the modern world by instilling a global, multicultural outlook. As one of the defining features of our heritage, our mother tongue, the Portuguese language, is a significant element of the school’s personal and cultural identity. 

We believe that a bilingual learning environment helps to cultivate a broad vision of the world, and the pillar of Global Citizenship highlights this view. Students learn in a setting that allows them to acquire English confidently, guaranteeing increased opportunities for social communication and leading them towards international academic and professional prospects.

Outcomes are measured via rigorous international assessment guidelines.

LIV

Life Intelligence Lab


You can't change how you feel, but you can learn what to do with your feelings. With this belief in mind, we have constructed our Emotional/Life - Intelligence Programme, or LIV, and present sessions to children in Kindergarten, to 9th grade.

Based on a structured pedagogical plan, LIV ensures a long-term process of discussion and exploration surrounding social and personal issues. The LIV curriculum is adapted to each stage to meet the needs of each age group.

Sports

One of the pillars of the Inspired Education Group


As one of the three pillars of the Inspired Education Group, alongside Creative and Performing Arts and the central pillar of Academics, we understand that sports practice offers multiple advantages. In addition to the obvious benefits gained from sporting activity, such as improved health, increased well-being and fun learning opportunities, a structured sports programme builds socio-emotional skills, including discipline, resilience, and teamwork.
