School is not only the place where you receive education, where a child feels involved. The cultural and linguistic diversities are an element of comparison and in constant sharing during the learning process. In an increasingly complex and heterogeneous world, marked by the absence of borders, by multilingual contexts, by variety and cultural contacts between diversities, our educational approach is focused on the development of a conscious, active, competent and multilingual citizenship. Today’s cultural and social developments bring about a better understanding of the ‘others’ and their values, which in turn encourage a positive attitude towards the study of languages. The promotion of multilingualism in our school through a plurality of interconnected actions is a method shared by the whole school team. Languages and cultures are not confined into strictly separated mental compartments; knowledge according to the European Parliament consists of:
• Communication in the mother tongue
• Communication in foreign languages
• Mathematical competence and basic competences in science and technology
• Digital competence
• Learning to learn
• Social and civic competences
• Spirit of initiative and entrepreneurship
• Cultural awareness and expression
In order to achieve the goals listed above, our school plans the learning targets and the didactic methods in a systematic way.
In fact the whole school works in a cooperative context where active methodologies have gained an ever-increasing relevance. These methodologies are designed to highlight the characteristics of each student in order to fully express his/her own potentiality.
Evaluation is procedural and dynamic and accompanies the students in their training.
The Headteacher and the teachers of the school encourage collaboration between schools and families throughout the year by scheduling meetings (individual and general consultations, meetings with students, teachers and parents) and sharing the learning agreement in a transparent and explicit way.
At the end of primary and of lower secondary school pupils achieve a certification of the acquired skills as well as a B1 language certification for German.
