The International School Nido de Aguilas

Elementary School

Welcome to Nido's Elementary School!

Jon Penhollow

In the Elementary School, our foundation is built on relationships, trust and strong culture. As students move through the grade levels, we not only want them to take pride in themselves, but also the classroom and school that supports them. If we can support and encourage this level of Nido culture, then the world outside our walls will also reap the benefits of our young citizens.

Within our academic program, our teachers work with our students to master the content, while taking risks and engaging in a collaborative/supportive environment. The words of Jo Boaler ring true with our beliefs, “Every time a student makes a mistake, a synapse grows.” We believe that if our students can think through, reason and explain their work in multiple ways, then future challenges will be met with confidence.

In order to create a strong and supportive culture, we know that communication is vital to our success. Our commitment is to provide open and honest lines of communication between staff, students and parents. If you have any questions about life in the Elementary School, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Jon Penhollow

Elementary School Principal
