SHACKLETON INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL emerges, as a British school, through the extensive experience in the education sector of its founding team. For over 40 years, we have been dedicated to teaching in early childhood education and language learning centres, always in search of excellence, innovation, contributions of neuroscience, psychology and social science (www.superfriends.com), developing our very own early linguistic immersion method, TET® (www.teteducation.com), along the way.
In 2012, we opened a new early childhood education centre, SUPERFRIENDS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, where we teach children from the early age of 4 months old onwards, and it is now, having reached the maturity of our project, that we want to give continuity and further development to the educational model that we believe in.
Our hope is to work to form integral human beings, with reference points, self-assured and committed, who can cope in diverse situations and adapt to the changes that are to come, ready to participate and contribute towards the formation of a better and more equitable society.
For this reason, we believe in the formation of values, where, beyond the subjects to be taught and the curricular principles that we want to develop, the promotion of effort, curiosity, collaboration, creativity, camaraderie, the ability to adapt, respect, critical thinking, etc., stand out as the means towards strengthening the inner self of each student as well as their social interaction.
We firmly believe that it is the combination of these values, along with the teachings and skills, such as the learning of languages, the reasonable use of the new technologies, attention to the health of the bodymind and teamwork, that constitute being a human of the 21st Century.
