GAP Schools

 

The educational model applied in the GAP school is based on the KIPP philosophy, and it focuses 51% on character training and 49% on academic training.

 

Each student enrolled in the GAP school, completes a socio-economic study, which identifies the specific environment of each child.

 

It is worth mentioning that our children received 100% scholarships, which is why the Commitment to Excellence is read to parents and incoming students, clearly stating the requirements that must be met to retain their scholarship.
