Creative thinking for the curious minds
An after school programme coordinated in conjunction with the Parent´s Association that introduces students from early stages to robotics and programming concepts, challenging them with problem-solving, creativity and thinking skills. Participants use a number of soft and hard STEM skills reinforcing their math, coding and engineering abilities. This club targets students at almost every age group and prepares them to be competitive at a national and international level.
Modern methods in language learning
Learning a new language develops memory skills, increases creativity and provides endless professional opportunities. Mandarin is the most spoken language in the world. The Oxford School is an extension of the Confucio Institute in Panama. This provides our students with the opportunity to receive mandarin lessons delivered by native teachers. Clubs are coordinated in conjunction with the Parents Association and offered after school hours to children between primary and secondary stages.
