Primary School: Grades 1-6
Our full-day primary school, accredited by the Guatemalan Ministry of Education, uses a hands-on, immersive methodology based on Expeditionary Learning. At the helm of our school are our teachers: highly trained, motivated educators who care about our students and who understand the value of innovative, full-day education.
Expeditionary Learning (EL) asks students to move beyond the classroom and work together on relevant, engaging projects that involve investigating issues in their community and beyond. “Expeditions” weave together science, social studies, reading, math, technology, and the arts, and show the students how their new skills and knowledge can be applied in the real world.
Our primary school students eat breakfast, lunch and two snacks every day at Safe Passage, so their bodies and minds are always ready to learn.
