From the 1st to the 5th grade, teachers stimulate the appetite for knowledge and its discovery, fostering qualities like curiosity and self-reliance. Independence, debate and dialog, the learning of values, advances in sociability, as well as individual competences and expressions of personality are the goals during this period.
At the Elementary School, following the first basic instructions (about the world, the group with which they interact and even their own body) each child’s competence and abilities are stimulated, enabling them to prepare for the lengthy learning process awaiting them in coming years. The School is the place where the individual has to develop intellectually and experience the friendly atmosphere in society, while respecting the differences of others.
At Dante the student is encouraged to resolve his/her own challenges and develop their self-esteem through ludic and cultural activities.
