LIFE´s day-to-day classroom activities reflect our educational philosophy. The teacher is a model and coach who comes alongside each student to stimulate the student’s desire and joy of learning. Our philosophy emphasizes ten key areas that, combined, make our educational project unique.

Exploratory Learning

LIFE fosters the spirit of curiosity and discovery through a variety of hands-on activities. The five senses are used to help students grow and learn about the world around them.

Critical Thinking & Problem Solving

Our goal is for students to move towards higher levels of critical thinking, analysis, and evaluation. Today, we have an unlimited amount of information at our fingertips, and students must be able to analyze that information and assess whether they can trust it. LIFE encourages children to analyze information for authenticity, to solve problems and navigate wisely in today’s information age.

Character Development

Research shows that character development is more important to a person’s success than academic achievement (Tough,P. “How Children Succeed”). LIFE promotes character development through direct instruction and through qualified teachers who are committed to modeling exemplary character.


The globalization of modern society requires emerging leaders to have excellent skills in communication. Teamwork and collaborative learning are educational emphases at LIFE International School.

Individualized Support

LIFE recognizes that each student is unique and special. Classes are small to accommodate needs for hands-on learning, language support, and individualized support for special learning needs.


We believe that assessment is not a measure of the person, but of their learning. At LIFE, our assessment guides our teaching and encourages students to continue learning. Both formally and informally, we assess student progress and regularly inform parents of their child’s development.

Health and Fitness

We know that our body is a gift to be taken care of. At LIFE we emphasize the development of healthy habits; physical activity, a balanced diet, sportsmanship and rest. Students will learn that nutrition and exercise will lead to a healthy lifestyle that will improve their learning and ultimately their quality of life. We have our own Lunch Service.

English Immersion

As children intuitively learn language in the context of their environment, classes are taught in English by teachers who are certified to teach non-native students. Students with different levels of English, learn in the same class with their peers. Individualized English intruction and support is provided to help students achieve fluency in content areas. Spanish language and culture are taught in primary courses.


As students are challenged to care about the needs of others, they will learn the value and importance of contributing to their community. As they mature they will use these skills to be leaders who serve. As they mature they will use these skills to be leaders who serve.

Biblical Integration

Every school´s educational philosophy is built upon core beliefs. Such assumptions and beliefs either include God, or exclude Him. At LIFE International School, we include God and a biblical view towards creation, people, and learning.
