English Program

This program consists of six schooling hours per day and is given fully in English. It allows the child, if capable and applicable, to potentially accomplish up to two years of study into one.


Analysis of the English Program from the former Assistant Director Lizette Sainz:

“Working at Da Vinci International has been an amazing experience. Instead of working by common core state standards, the Da Vinci system works by assigning an individualized curriculum to each child that comes to the school, which depends on the placement test given when the child begins attending Da Vinci. This type of system works wonders for the children because they can work based on their abilities, as well as on their own pace. It allows them to learn the school subjects much better as well as the child enjoys and remembers what they are learning. Academically, the school system allows the students to reach their goals by either reaching their grade level, or even surpassing it.

Da Vinci works by individualized curriculum. The student-teacher ratio in the class is on a 8:1. The teaching style and class environment is also very different and unique. On a daily basis, as a teacher I have to make sure my students are working forty-five minutes straight. During this time they are focusing on their work, meanwhile, I work with each and everyone of them with whatever they need help on or use the forty five minutes to work as a whole class and teach the class something that is the same subject. Having a small class size helps both the teacher and student by one: giving the teacher the ability to move around the class and not leave anyone out when needing help, and two: by helping the student get the attention and help they need. Also, taking into consideration that most children need to take a break after an intensive mental work, they get a fifteen-minute break or recess to get them back on track. This schedule repeats throughout the day and functions very well with the students. Moreover, by the end of the day the child leaves school happy and is allowed to spend leisure time with their family whether at home or doing extra-curricular activities by not having any homework. Having breaks at school, and not having homework allows the child to work hard in school and motivates them to do well. I am witness that these privileges work as a positive reinforcement.”
