  • "ONE CHILD, ONE TEACHER, ONE BOOK, AND ONE PEN CAN CHANGE THE WORLD." - Malala Yousafzai

    Student Centered Approach
    To Teaching and Learning

    ABSS believes in a student-centered, inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning. Teachers seek to maintain an intimate environment in which they are able to respond to the individual academic needs and adjust for the learning style of each student. In addition, the small class size ensures both physical and emotional safety for all children.

  • "EDUCATION IS THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON WHICH YOU CAN USE TO CHANGE THE WORLD" - Nelson Mandela

    High Standards
    of Excellence

    ABSS believes that there is no substitute for academic rigor, and holds high expectations for all of its students. Teachers work one-on-one with all students, fostering respectful behavior, while encouraging higher-level thinking skills to help each child reach his or her academic, social and emotional potential. This helps prepare all children to become responsible global citizens.

    Philosophy of teaching

    The Alison Bixby Stone School is dedicated to excellence in teaching and learning. The curriculum and instruction at ABSS aims to help students become bi-literate in English and Spanish, as well as to become mathematically and scientifically literate. ABSS addresses the intellectual, emotional, social, and physical growth of each child through creative, challenging, and academically rigorous programs.

We believe that if students create, perform and experiment, or solve real-life problems, learning becomes concrete and enjoyable. Our teachers promote active, hands-on learning that reinforces the relevance of what they learn.

At ABSS we have access to Zamorano's experienced faculty, state-of-the-art learning laboratories and athletics facilities. As an integral part of the Zamorano learning community, the students in ABSS develop an environmental awareness.

And now that we are transitioning to the 4H model both primary and secondary students will be served better; the model further develops life skills, empowerment, ownership, leadership, responsibility, and citizenship. Learning by doing is one part of our school´s mission and this echoes the 4H motto. We have seven 4H clubs: music, dance, sports, theatre, environment, World Food Prize, gardening and art.
