The Montessori School’s leisure time activities offer students different venues to develop their interests and skills in the cultural, artistic, scientific, and sports areas. These tools also help students acquire discipline, promote teamwork, and strengthen self-esteem.
Students participate in various other exhibits, tournaments and contests: cultural and sport week celebrations in other Medellín’s schools, musical activities such as “Oviedo es Música”, INDER (Recreation and Sport Institute of Medellín) state school games, and robotic contests at a regional, national, and international level, among others.
The main objective of The Montessori School’s seed groups is to develop students’ competencies and skills, under the guidance of highly qualified coaches and trainers:
