Students at EBI will become fully literate in Spanish and English, and will develop conversational skills in a third language.
- Educational Excellence
EBI is committed to maintaining high standards for its students in all areas of education. We believe that when learning is stimulating, fun and developmentally appropriate, children gain the motivation to become self-directed, life-long learners.Our programs promote the active construction of knowledge through concept-driven inquiry, striking a balance between a transdisciplinary program of inquiry and traditional disciplines.
At the heart of EBI is the conviction that tolerance and respect for cultural diversity breeds deeper understanding and compassion for all humanity. EBI strives to teach its students about diversity in its many forms – ethnic, linguistic, economic, cultural and familial – by actively working to create a community of individuals from all walks of life.
Children shape our future - so let's educate them to make them the best they can be. EBI believes that at the heart of education is the cultivation of character. We strive to promote certain qualities of character in our students explicitly, through pedagogically sound methods of inquiry practiced in the classroom, as well as implicitly, through examples reinforced on a daily basis by our teachers, administrators and parents.
Among other qualities of character, we will seek to instill in our students: respect for self and others, integrity, compassion, cooperation, curiosity, empathy, enthusiasm, open-mindedness, confidence, humility and generosity.
