Offering a variety of electives for students to feel both challenged and important in the school community. Our Team of Teachers provide project-based learning techniques along with critical thinking and communication skills.
Critical thinking & communication
As students move from preadolescence to adolescences, our middle school curriculum bridges the gap through the study of core principles for successful thinking and communication.
In addition to standard disciplines, Journey School of Costa Rica’s students explore critical thinking systems, including nonviolent communication, objectivity vs subjectivity, logical fallacies and cognitive biases, the importance of context, meta-cognition and introspection, as well as the Socratic Method.
US accredited, Journey School of Costa Rica’s central tenants continue to be kindness, empathy, compassion and academic excellence. We work closely with Cognia, MEP, REGGIO Children and Conscious Discipline.
