For almost 80 years, the school has worked towards providing an integral education for students, based on ethical Christian principles, tied with the needs of the world today.
To achieve this mission, São Teodoro school has the following objectives:
All the principles, values and actions that characterize Sion schools lead their teachers to be present in daily school life in guiding children and young people towards peaceful and welcoming relationships, respecting the other in his or her beliefs. Here they should feel good and happy in their search for knowledge, making friends, welcoming in order to be welcomed.
These values, thoughts and attitudes that the school upholds are experienced through an educational process that prepares students for the future, focusing on: what to learn and why to learn it, how to teach, how to promote collaborative learning networks and how to evaluate learning. They must come to see themselves in their historical and cultural context. They must communicate, participate, and be: creative, capable of critical analysis, open to new things, collaborative, resilient and productive. They must be able to act with discernment and responsibility, apply knowledge to solve problems, be autonomous in making decisions and finding solutions, and live with and learn from differences and diversity.
The school’s concern for social issues and the development of the students’ humanity has led to a focus on solidarity and fraternity from Kindergarten onwards, encouraging them to be sensitive towards others, developing their sense of justice and equality and raising their awareness of the dignity and rights of all human beings.
“Sion welcomes us, supports us, makes us confident and gives us hope.”
