Our main goal in Elementary School is to educate autonomous, socially responsible and environmentally conscious girls who enjoy and take part in their learning process, use free time in a healthy way, and learn how to establish harmonious, respectful, solidary and collaborative relationships with their peers.
To achieve this, the interdisciplinary team who works in this division relies on pedagogical, methodological and technological tools to help the students to develop their social, communicative, critical thinking, problem solving and decision making skills, as well as build habits and study methods.
The curriculum includes arts, music and dance from Nursery to 11th grade to foster intellectual development, cultural diversity, physical activity, creativity and artistic expression in the students. They work in projects in a bilingual setting.

Moving into Middle School means that students are also transitioning into early adolescence and starting to define who they will be as adults. The adults around them play an important role by observing, supporting and intervening when guidance is needed. Self-management, autonomy, study habits and decision-making start to be consolidated.
Students start producing texts based on analysis and critical thinking. Technological tools such as mobile devices form part of their everyday lessons, preparing them to interact in a global world.
At this age, students become more aware of living according to the school values (Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Solidarity, Tolerance, and Spirituality) and relationships with others play an important role in their lives. As a result the Marymount Model is strengthened and becomes visible.
We count on a multidisciplinary team of professionals who cultivate values and develop social, communicative and problem-solving skills in the students.
The curriculum includes arts, music and dance from Nursery to 11th grade to foster intellectual development, cultural diversity, physical activity, creativity and artistic expression in the students. They work in projects in a multilingual setting: Spanish as a native language, English as a second language and French as an additional language.

Instruction in High School seeks to build skills for life that will enable them to become confident, autonomous and competent women, who advocate for their beliefs, solve real-world problems in a creative and innovative way, and make a positive contribution to society once they leave school. Students are encouraged to take intellectual risks to develop critical thinking skills as well as a love for life-long learning.
We count on a multidisciplinary team of professionals who cultivate values and develop social, communicative and problem-solving skills in the students.
The rigorous curriculum includes, in addition to traditional subjects, arts, music and dance to foster intellectual development, cultural diversity, physical activity, creativity and artistic expression in the students. They work in projects in a multilingual setting: Spanish as native language, English as a second language and French as an additional language.
