STUDENT SKILLS

At Greenville the “Learning Experiences” are meaningful and stimulating for our elementary students. Our educational model is based on skills development.

Experiences that allow our students to enjoy what they have lived, to discover new knowledge through challenges, to enhance their skills, learning and attitudes by making them an active part in their own formation.

By promoting in them self-discipline and reflection, students are protagonists in their own learning process and emotional growth.
At Greenville Elementary we make sure that our students are confident, independent, capable of analyzing problems and finding informed and well-supported solutions, while enjoying learning and being happy.

With the multilingual immersion program: English, Spanish and French as a third language which Greenville International School offers our elementary students, oral and written communication is favored in a natural, analytical and reflective way to help students organize their thinking in the construction of their knowledge..

Only in Greenville can you find areas of knowledge that promote in our students a global vision, love for the environment and respect for multiculturalism through subjects such as Environment and Intercultural Studies.
Learning environments equipped with technology and educational platforms.
