The Escola do Futuro, in partnership with the families, aims to assist in the formation of our students in all aspects and we see them as diamonds and us, through education and as artisans, must lapidate them.
An uncut diamond resembles a simple pebble that most people would pass by without noticing. In the ability of a cutter is the ability to releases the fascinating beauty that lies inside a diamond.
The cutter’s technique is an art.
We believe that educating is an art given by God. The diamond cutter works with maximum accuracy because an error means, aside from the hours and days of lost work, it also is the loss of half of the original stone’s weight.
The beauty of a diamond depends on the way it reflects light. The precision and delicacy with which the diamond is cut determines its brilliance, its fire, its beauty, its value.
As the craftsman works the core so that the light wanders free from inside the stone and reflects the light back, the Escola do Futuro and the families must conscientiously and in unison, work on the character development of our children.
Besides following our own challenges on the function of educating, we have been concerned with the postmodern world and attentive to changes, leading us to greater dedication on time and actions for moral, emotional balance, sociability, political knowledge and awareness of our students.
This way, we can maximize the refraction of light, which will make our diamonds, our beloved students, useful citizens prepared to face society and in a position to turn this into a better world.
