Teaching approach of the school

Its educational model is based on working on personal autonomy from a very early age, when students begin to develop their abilities. The aim is to equip them with transversal skills, such as the ability to speak in public, learn to learn, reason, think, work in a team, analyse texts critically, avoiding rote learning. With these key skills, students leave prepared to face the challenges of the university and working world, both internationally and locally.
