About LIFE > Curriculum and Instruction

The school follows a standard global curriculum with a focus on multicultural understanding.

The maximum class size is kept low to ensure that students are able to work to their fullest potential while receiving individualized attention. Teachers provide thematic instruction while differentiating tasks based on language level and background knowledge as well as abilities in multiple intelligences. Specials currently include music, arts & crafts, buddy reading, computer skills, wellness, and swimming.

All major subjects are taught in English by certified native speakers with the exception of Spanish, which is a compulsory subject at all levels.

As an independent, nonprofit, non-sectarian learning facility, L.I.F.E. School serves not only its students but the community in general. In order to maximize cultural integration, the school observes Guatemalan holidays and participates in community events.

Our curriculum is firmly internationalist in its orientation, committed to studying and understanding the world from many different perspectives and through the many voices of people from all over the globe. Through their study of science, history, current events, literature, and the arts, we want our students to explore the unity of our human condition through the diversity of its manifestations - to recognize and respect the multiplicity and variety of cultures, religions, and arts that are all expressions of our common humanity.

In addition to giving our students a solid academic preparation, we strive to help our students grow into open-minded, aware, and fulfilled human beings, people who are aware of their own and others' positive potentials. We also want our students to develop moral qualities that acknowledge the dignity and respect that others deserve, and that includes empathy toward the feelings and experiences of other people. Likewise, our curriculum is also strongly ecological in orientation, committed to helping our students recognize the interconnectedness and fragility of our biosphere, and their role in helping preserve it.
