Graduating from Fontan School in 1995 made me a responsible person who manages time well. Today, I’m profoundly grateful to the school's principal and leaders for the impression they left on me. I’ve been able to fulfill my goals and dreams, thanks, in part, to the things I learned and experienced in Fontan School.
In my experience, the school is a place where every student is unique, every student has their strengths and their own pace. I learned many things at school, but the most important ones for me were, first, reading and understanding what I read. Even though I came to Fontan when I was already in secondary school, my reading comprehension wasn’t good. The methodology helped me develop that skill. Second, autonomy... I learned to make my own decisions and be responsible for the consequences, decide how to use my time and prioritize the things I do. This helped me enormously. That's why I’m an autonomous, disciplined and responsible woman now. Thanks to the school for all the things I learned!
I’m Luis Felipe Cadavid. I graduated in 2004. I chose the school on my cousin's recommendation. He had gone from traditional school to traditional school in Medellin, but he managed to adapt to studying and being disciplined only when he entered Fontan. My experience was very similar. I came from an all-boys school where they made us tuck our shirt in and wear the same haircut, among other things that do nothing for your personal expression or real discipline in life. In Fontan, I found a much more appropriate environment for learning, not just in academic terms, but learning about life. I learned to understand the positive or negative consequences of my actions... or lack of actions. I learned a lot. It was a blessing to find this educational system, to find the friends I made at school, to learn to value my time and other people’s time and much more. I love Fontan School and I’m very grateful for this system. I recommend it 100%. P.S. The school prepared me very well for university. I graduated with an excellent grade average. I worked in one of the biggest companies in the world for six years and now I’m happy with my own company.
