The leaders of this century need special competences that allow them to manage the challenges of an ever changing and fast paced world. San Mateo Apostol School’s students are at the forefront because of their analytic abilities, which allow them to understand, argument and shape new solutions for upcoming situations.
The Educational Project of San Mateo School is based on the Teaching for Understanding approach, created at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education. Its goal is to develop critical competences that allow students to know how to put in good use their expertise; it stimulates their analytic and argumentative skills so that they can build their own knowledge with the resources at hand.
Since their first years at San Mateo School, students learn how to analyze and rearrange the information in order to create new connections that enlighten new ideas and solutions.
As a result, every year it graduates a group of independent and autonomous leaders who are creative and propose new solutions suited for every context. With sharpness, excellence, dedication, and determination, our students always reach their ambitious goals.
The school has managed to keep excellence since its first class, getting high standards in the State’s Exam (ICFES) being always within the best-ranked schools in Bogotá, Colombia.
We provide our students with all the tools to easily manage their lives and accomplish their dreams.
