The Student: Fundamental Concern
CAMBRIDGE COLLEGE has been created with the objective of forming leaders for the future, of shaping children and adolescents who, in the future, are capable of succeeding in the environment in which they find themselves. Based on this, it has implemented, in addition to the current means and methods of schooling, others that will serve the students to develop their potential.
School - Parents
Special mention deserves, within the personalized follow-up of the development of the student, the one of the constant communication, viaInternet, between the parents of family and our establishment. We believe it is of fundamental importance that the links between CAMBRIDGE COLLEGE and the parents and guardians must be fluid, in order to be able to execute an effective control of the development of the school activities of each one of our students. Modern technology gives us the elements to do it, and it's time to do it.
Teachers - Students
For the same reasons stated above, communication, via the internet, between teachers and each of their students must, can and is constant. Any of our students will have the possibility of making contact with the teacher to whom they require, to make inquiries; In the same way, teachers can communicate with their students to complement their daily classes.

Our children take the curriculum of the United Kingdom so all their subjects are given in English.
We have three courses, Early Years (Nidito), Foundation (Pre-Kinder) and Year 1 (Kinder).

The subjects that are taught in preschool are mathematics, English phonetics, English, fine motor skills, art, music, computing, gross motor skills, morals, social sciences, and natural sciences.

The students of Primary, in the first years are in an emotional and academic stage different from the students of superior primary. They are learning the basic concepts of language and mathematics, which are the foundations of the other subjects.
The division of the primary school into two levels allows for greater attention to the specific needs of each group. Each coordinator can specialize in their area and ensure that the emotional, social, moral and academic development of the students is carried out.
