The pillars describe the mission of each Sphere school

The pillars describe the mission of each Sphere school, the shared values, the type of the student we aim to develop, and the national and international foundation that supports the work of the school.

They offer structure for the academic objectives and diverse projects, initiatives and practices that support the development of the students in light of each of the established academic targets.

The essential premise to be assimilated by any Sphere schools and professionals is that this is an institutional project and as such requires the teams from all schools work in sync, in order for the institution to provide continuity in the school project with the franchise’s support and structure in a consistent practice.

With the premise of a contemporary education venture, projects, initiatives, and practices may be expanded, modified or substituted with time, based on the shared experiences e of the desired objectives. After all, this a well-structured, substantiated and organized project, while being modern, dynamic, flexible, alive and vibrant.
