Social Action Program (PAS)
As social human beings by nature, every person should put at the service of others each and every one of the potential and talents that life has given him/her, considering minimum parameters for justice, equality and harmony between all fellow human beings. The Montessori School guides its students to work towards the common good and forges in them a strong sense of responsibility. In this direction, the School encourages, promotes, and creates spaces for training, reflection and interaction for concrete situations of vulnerability and when discovering opportunities for social improvement. The Montessori School encourages, promotes and develops reflection and interaction spaces for education, reflection and interaction for specific situations of vulnerability and social improvement that require our assistance.
