Kinich School, your best option

Small groups

We have a reduced student-teacher ratio with maximum of 20 students per group. Small group instruction gives students more of the teacher’s focused attention and a chance to ask specific questions about what they learned.

Expert Academic Coaches

Our team of Teacher Coaches is fully qualified and highly experienced to guide the learning of every student. They are experts in distance learning and online education to design meaningful learning experiences.

Face-to-face virtual sessions

Our lessons are live and fully interactive: students can hear and see the Academic Coach, actively participate, share their knowledge and work collaboratively.

Also we incorporated individual offline sessions to continue learning.

Flexibility

We offer two school modalities for Elementary School

Kinich Global: academic content, personal development, comprehensive, artistic, and technological education.

Kinich Ed – Academic content only – Ideal for students who are part of a Learning Pod.

Social-emotional Skills

Starting from the personal attributes to generate a social impact, we work on the development of soft skills such as

  • autonomy, and self-awareness
  • self-efficacy and growth mindsets
  • self-management
  • social awareness and relationship skills
  • intercultural understanding and responsible decision making.

Our Technology

We use iPads as a supportive educational tool, which promotes technology and digital skills.

iPads are managed by the academic coaches, which ensures a safe environment for our students.

“Knotion” Platform

Our platform allows access to school lessons, academic resources, videos, and interactive activities which are designed to motivate students curiosity.

The platform allows coaches and parents to monitor the progress and performance of each student in a personalized way.

Community and Partnerships

Our methodology goes beyond a virtual school at home; we have access to experts from a wide range of organizations to complement students’ learning.

We hold virtual interaction sessions to promote social skills and bonds among the school community.

Supporting each family

We support the grow of each family through workshops, sessions with experts, and conversations among parents and primary caregivers.

How we teach

At Kinich School, students collaborate with  academic coaches to take ownership of their opportunities for meaningful learning.

Students learn and interact with classmates from all around the world. They work as a team, take online classes, and develop impact projects related to solve global problems.

IMPACT MODEL

Identifying

Students are involved in inquiry activities and engagement techniques to create relevance and excitement to learn. We support student collaboration to build-up appropriate skills. Students reflect on their choices as a way to increase their agency as learners.

Mapping

It is a process to highlight the knowledge, skills, and big ideas that students should get from a lesson, or unit. This step allows the student to keep focused on what is essential, offers a zoomed-out view of their learning, and shows the relationship between components of their building knowledge.

Prototyping

Students use prototyping tools and processes to gather feedback, test understanding of concepts, and develop skills and proficiency to design innovative solutions and test new ideas.

Acting

The students learn about implementing school knowledge in actions and plans in a different context. This approach allows them to analyze possible solutions for local and global problems.
