Educational Project

International SEK School Costa Rica - About Us, Educational Project Educational Project

SEK International Institution, founded in 1892, is an educational organization that covers preschool, elementary and high-school at its international schools as well as higher education at its university centers.

All SEK International Institution Centers are officially recognized worldwide, having 20 schools in Spain, Chile, Paraguay, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Dominican Republic, United States, Hungary, United Kingdom and South Africa.

We aim to provide the most advanced education, through a tutorial system within an international context, and emphasizing the development of the individual as a whole.

The Educational Project of SEK International School is defined by the following guideline:

  1. An Educational Project is a proposal to establish the education objective through specific activities, which is the full development of the human being based on the aim of the United Nations and other international organizations, as outlined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in the Declaration of Children Rights.  

 

  1. Education should provide the means so that students can achieve the upmost results of their potential, not only natural but also social. These qualities make each person unique and unrepeatable.

 

       3. This Educational Project has three main elements:

  • The definition of the character will be encouraged in the students by searching their own identity.
  • The Education guideline is a sequence of learning tasks that leads the students to the knowledge of the world and their own recognition as human beings.
  • The educational means and the functional characteristics of eachSEK School must contribute to a cultural environment that strengthens the learning content and desirable behavior.

 

       4. SEK Educational Project is based on:

  • the  philosophical premise: What is the man and where is he going?
  • an interpretation of the culture: What sense do the personal growth and social development have?
  • the acceptance of a pedagogical doctrine: The education has fundamental values and uses the correct technology to teach such values to the students.

 

       5.  SEK Educational Project considers as basics:

  •  freedom and creativity of the intelligence 
  •  the order and the institutionalization of the social processes
  •  the ethics for helping and respecting others that transcends the individual

       

       6.  The character that the school tries to promote in the students is based on SEK style. This is the aim of the cultured individual in search of his or her personal and social fulfillment. 

 

        7.  SEK curriculum depends on the official programs of the states and countries where they are located. Improvements to these will be applied.

 

        8.  SEK methodology, which stimulates individual and group work, is diverse, open, flexible and active. It relies on the tutorial model and the multimedia system. This personalized teaching method leads to up most support to the students physically and personally by including textbooks, labs, gyms, libraries, classrooms, dining rooms, work rooms and dorms.
