A FEW WORDS
FROM ST. MATTHEW'S HEAD OF SCHOOL: LUZ HELENA
Our goal is to create responsible autonomous citizens with an enthusiasm for learning and respect for self and others. We recognise that in order to be successful in that aim, our children need support from both home and school. Together we will continue to strive for excellence for all our students, happily embracing new challenges while celebrating the traditions and philosophy of our vibrant school.
Early Learning School
School entry is a fundamental step in the lives of young children. For this reason, in our preschool, we strive to teach in a pleasant environment created especially for them; where movement and experimentation are the basis of their education. We cultivate habits and routines which bolster their self-esteem, bringing them closer to learning with love and affection. At our Early Learning School we promote game playing for the development of motor skills in safe environments and we focus on instilling the value of solidarity as an essential element in their integral formation.
Elementary and Highschool
We strive for our students to mature into outstanding human beings, global citizens and formidable leaders. To achieve this, we have designed activities & programmes which positively contribute to their capabilities in constantly questioning the unknown, evaluating different viewpoints, debate and effective decision-making. In them, we reinforce the importance of entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation through conceptualising and execution of various projects.
OUR FOUR STUDENT HOUSES
At San Mateo School we connect and promote the union of our community. San Mateo is a vibrant and supportive community. For this reason, taking the community model of Anglo-Saxon education, the Saint Matthew School is organised into four student houses that compete all year round in different sports and artistic pursuits, thereby building a spirit of healthy competition, based on fellowship, fraternity and teamwork.
