Values in Primary

In Primary, we emphasize the understanding and the practice of the Bolivar Values in our students. These seven values, respect, integrity, personal best, curiosity, autonomy and responsibility, sense of Bolivar community, and social commitment, are a daily theme in our section, and together with the students we reflect on ways to apply them. We know our seven values are a necessary base upon which to achieve the school’s mission to “educate its students in a bilingual, democratic environment to be autonomous, to demonstrate a spirit of inquiry and collaboration, to uphold a commitment to excellence, and to maintain the highest aspirations for the welfare of both the individual and society.”
