The purpose of Social Service is to involve our students in projects and programs implemented by educational institutions and/or foundations that assist communities in conditions of poverty or alienation, making them aware of the social reality of their community and country, and encouraging them to form part of the solution, putting into practice their solidarity, responsibility and service values.
Bilingual and multicultural education
Studies have proven that children learn a second language much easier and faster during their first seven years of life. At Centro Escolar Picacho McGregor, we are focused on providing our students with the necessary foundation with our English program and our highly qualified professors from the United States and Canada, starting at 2 years of age and during all their school years, through high-school. We believe that a student´s learning abilities, and his/her cultural interest and work potential, are enriched by being able to develop a second language in a classroom where students of different cultures learn together.
Centro Escolar Picacho McGregor is a 50/50 English immersion model, which means that our students are taught 50% in English and 50% in Spanish
Our students learn and understand the rules and laws of nature through collaborative projects, applying the methodology used in scientific investigation, stimulating their interest in the field of science and scientific investigation.
With a view to offering a more solid academic preparation and providing our students with the latest educational technology elements, Centro Escolar Picacho McGregor makes a permanent investment in means and resources, such as interactive blackboards connected to internet, access to encyclopedias and worldwide databases, and educational sites and editorials that provide access to our students to the modern world and culture, connecting our classrooms to the world and providing our teachers with constant training, keeping them updated in this field.
