Academic Area

The Craighouse School curriculum, implemented from Playgroup to Year 12, seeks to identify, facilitate and develop each pupil’s full potential.

The school takes on the challenge to aim for high academic standards in PSU, IB Diploma and SIMCE, respecting the individual differences of our families and each of their members.

  • Primary Years Programme (PYP)
  • Middle Years Programme (MYP)
  • Diploma Programme (DP)

This allows pupils to develop their knowledge, skills and talents in different areas, including math and science, arts and humanities, language, and sports.


Academic Curriculum

Through its comprehensive curriculum and extra-curricular activities, Craighouse School complies with national Chilean requirements as well as offering the three International Baccalaureate Organisation Programmes.

Together with the Craighouse Formative Curriculum, the Academic Curriculum aims to develop our pupils’ ability to express emotions, critical and reflective thinking, personal autonomy, responsibility, and self-esteem.

International Baccalaureate

The International Baccalaureate programmes ( provide us with a platform for pupils to be truly engaged with their own learning as inquirers. The IB programmes put - the learner at the centre and engage them to think widely and deeply about things from diverse perspectives.

The programmes aim to prepare children and young people to reflect on the consequences of knowledge and actions and in this way inspire them to do their best to improve the world.

Craighouse School began its affiliation with the International Baccalaureate in 1994 when the school became authorized to implement the Diploma Programme, a rigorous course of study leading to a recognized certification of excellence for high school pupils.

Since then, Craighouse School has become a IB World Continuum school having also earned approval to implement the Primary Years Programme (Prekinder to Year 4) and the Middle Years Programme (Years 5 through 9).

This department groups together professionals from Technology Education and Educational Technology, and their work strives to develop a global view of technology.

Educational Technology encourages pupils to use information and communication technology (ICT) in order to strengthen and develop ICT skills for learning (in Spanish, HTPA).

In the context of today’s society, these skills are “the ability to solve problems related to information, communication and knowledge, as well as legal, social and ethical dilemmas in adigital environment” (Enlaces, 2013).

Our curriculum includes activities where pupils from Playgroup to Year 12 use devices or applications in virtual environments, where technology benefits learning, collaborative work and virtual communication.

Technology Education challenges pupils to look at the world of technology and at the same time it offers them great opportunities to come up with possible solutions to problems that they encounter and learn to assess the relative strengths and weaknesses of those solutions. That is how Technology Education helps our students to become reflective, proactive citizens of the 21st century.

Our main purpose is to motivate pupils so that they learn by doing and, later on, by reflecting on the process they have designed or implemented.
