|Portuguese to English: A Proposta Pedagógica ESFERA|
|Source text - Portuguese|
Esfera Escola Internacional é uma instituição diferenciada, pois tem por objetivo formar pessoas conscientes do seu papel na sociedade e capazes de intervir no mundo a fim de torná-lo mais humano e fratermo.
Nossa fundamentação metodológica parte de uma ação educativa centrada no aguçar da curiosidade infantil, promove reflexões e desencadeia aprendizagens significativas. Esse contexto possibilita ao aluno sistematizar conhecimentos e, através do autogerenciamento, desenvolver uma atitude empreendedora frente a sua aprendizagem e ao estar no mundo. Tais conquistas se fortalecem a partir do desenvolvimento do apreço pelo conhecimento, pautado em valores como: cooperação, respeito, tolerância, amizade, solidariedade.
Essa proposta pedagógica concretiza-se num ambiente multicultural, focado em uma educação bilíngüe, fundamental à aproximação dos povos e ao estar no mundo de maneira consciente e comprometida com a disseminaçao de valores.

Esfera International School is unique in its goal of creating individuals who are conscious of their role in society and are capable of making the world a better place.
Our methodology and educational strategy is based on stimulating children’s curiosity, promoting reflection and creating significant learning opportunities. This environment allows the student to systematize knowledge and, through self management, develop an entrepreneurial outlook about their learning process and their place in the world. These achievements are strengthened by the development of a love of learning, based in values such as: cooperation, respect, tolerance, friendship and camaraderie.
This educational philosophy is solidified in a multicultural environment, focusing on bilingual education as an essential tool for intercultural relationships and for world consciousness.
