Educational Project

The International Baccalaureate programmes are the foundation for Casvi International American School’s school.

The International Baccalaureate (IB) uses a skills-based constructivist methodological framework that can be applied to any education system and its programmes and contents are designed by and for teachers.

The IB programmes applied to an American education model – fully authorized by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports – make possible for English to be the language of instruction at Casvi International American School, with native English-speaking teachers. Moreover, the IB’s language policy includes the mother tongue – in this case, Spanish for the majority of students – as the language of instruction for the subjects of Language and Social Studies.

IBO Programmes

Casvi International American School’s education model is based on the three IBO (International Baccalaureate Organization) programs: the PYP (Primary Years Programme), in pre-school and elementary school; the MYP (Middle Years Programme), in middle school; and the Diploma Programme in High School, though students will have the follow Spain’s High School Programme, or a combination of the two, if so desired.

IB programmes challenge students for excel in their studies, and encourage both personal and academic achievement.

The theory of multiple intelligences, emotional intelligence and early stimulation are an integral part of these programmes. Our goal is to educate citizens of the world, young people who are inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, good communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective. In short, we help them to learn how to learn on their own.

Lower School

Playing skills are the fundamental basis of learning in all Pre-K and Kindergarten routines. During this stage, work is also done on important aspects such as independence and self-esteem, oral, physical and artistic expression, and beginning reading and math. This rigorous and stimulating program promotes the development of independent learning skills, which encourages all students to assume responsibility for their own education.

It is part of the IB’s Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the language of instruction is English. Students learn through transdisciplinary units of inquiry.

At this stage, our main goal is to create work habits that will help them to successfully deal with their middle and high school studies.

Exhibition represent a significant event in the life of a PYP student. It is an opportunity for students in their final year to exhibit the attributes of the IB learner profile developed throughout their engagement with the PYP.

Middle and High School. Grades 6 to 10

At this stage, which is part of the IB’s Middle Years Programme (MYP), students are encouraged to make practical connections between their studies and the real world, which prepares them for success in future studies and in their lives.

The MYP, which is based on modular courses by discipline, offers students the tools they need to investigate and to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers.

This phase ends with a Personal Project, which consists of several months of work on a topic chosen by the student followed by a project that the student presents to the rest of the school community, a self-assessment and subsequent reflection.

High School. Grades 11 to 12

In our school, students may study Spain’s High School Programme, which prepares them for the Spanish University Entrance Exam (abbreviated as EvAU in Spanish). For this reason, the language of instruction at this stage is Spanish.

In addition, students will have the option to follow Spain’s High School Programme combined with the IB Diploma Programme that builds their social, research, thinking, self-management, and communication skills.

In addition to the official written exam, in order to finish the Diploma Programme, students must carry out the following activities:

  • Theory of knowledge, which introduces the student to reflecting on the sources of knowledge.
  • An extended essay (research paper), similar to the university-level Senior Thesis or Project.
  • Creativity, activity and service (CAS) activities, in which the student must take part in various individual and group projects, with creative, sports-related and volunteer activities.
