VESS Educational Model

 

VESS Educational Program

Our schools are centers of excellence in the use of  Visible Thinking, developed by Project Zero at Harvard Graduate School of Educationas well as other methodologies that promote critical, analytical, and creative thinking. The arts are also an important part of learning as they are applied to other curricular areas to foster habits of mind by making the learning process more fun, interesting, and challenging.

 

 

 

We are committed to create a culture of thinking using the development of PEP, Thinking as a Pedagogical Strategy (from Spanish Pensamiento como Estrategia Pedagógica):

 

Our focus offers a wide vision of education in the process of thinking and the development of habits of mind, two essential elements in the life of any individual.

 

The program is designed to help children in their development and construction of the mind through infancy until adulthood.

 

The program is very successful because it understands and works with the principles of the natural development of a child.

 

Its flexibility provides a framework that can be incorporated within any curriculum or academic program.

 

It is an educational support tool that expands the methodological alternatives of an educator.

 

Our VESS Difference

We teach for life to children from the early years and up, to educators, and to the community using the development of thinking as a pedagogical strategy to achieve a Balanced Life with Meaning and Wisdom, and to generate cultures of thinking. We offer fun and significant learning for life.

 

We are committed to create a culture of thinking and learning. We believe that through education we can make of the world a better place to live. For that, we focus on this seven foundations:

Entrepreneurship

 

We see school as an extension of real life. In order to make learning more significant, it has to connect to real life. Our program fosters the disposition of entrepreneurship through the execution of significant projects for the children; projects that are carefully selected, planned, and executed by the students.

Citizenship

 

We are convinced by the necessity of forming ethical citizens with solid values. We believe in those individuals who understand that citizenship goes beyond following the rules and behaving correctly. Our programs to form citizens is supported by five fundamental principles that are demonstrated by any good citizen.

The Mind (Mindfulness)

 

The program is designed to help children in their task of building the mind from childhood to adulthood. Every individual should search for a clear purpose in life; in this way there is an intrinsic motivation that grows from the cultivation of the mind and emotional intelligence.

Academic Foundation

 

The program is successful because it understands and works with the principles of natural development in a child as well as all the elements based on the fundamentals of neuro-development.

Its flexibility provides a framework that can be incorporated within any curriculum or academic program.

The educator as an enabler

 

It is a tool for educational support that expands the methodological alternatives of any educator.
