Our educational project aims at applying knowledge through a healthy, courteous and joyful school environment. We seek to develop useful life skills for students in multiple areas of knowledge such as Virtues Development, Languages (Spanish, English, French and Portuguese), Natural Science, Social Science, Computer Science, Arts Education, Physical Education and Religious Education.
Healthy and sustainable environment
Virtues Development is the subject that integrates all other subjects from Prekindergarten to Twelfth grade, in order to develop skills and competencies necessary to live a happy, ethical and productive life, in an environment conducive to learning free from fear and coercion and, full of constructive challenges based on trust, courtesy and healthy relationships for an optimal brain development.
Sustainable and healthy Campus. LEED Gold
Our campus is designed to facilitate learning and take care of health, by providing optimal lighting, air quality, acoustic insulation, landscaping, responsible use of water and energy and the school as a living textbook. In 2014, the school was certified for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) by the United States Green Building Council.
Useful learning for life and the world
Our students go beyond acquiring and developing knowledge. Through their subjects and integrated projects, they learn to use that knowledge in real life situations. THIS REAL is our acronym for the different ways our students learn to use and apply it.

Internal responsibility towards happiness and success
Rochester students learn self-evaluation with professional tools and methods and to improve and innovate. They learn to use Choice Theory and sustainability concepts to include quality to their lives, to others’ lives and to the nature around them.
Happiness or mental health can be defined as enjoying the life you are choosing to live, getting along well with the people near and dear to you, doing something with your life you believe is worthwhile, and not doing anything to deprive anyone else of the same chance for the happiness that you have. William Glasser, M.D. (2003)
