We think school should not be only the place of academic learning, but it must also be a space for the affirmation and the promotion of a culture of citizenship, personal development and awakening of civic awareness.

The Erasmus project has several attractions for our school: it sets a social and emotional cohesion which is not taken for granted. It is based on creating a link among pupils from all kinds of ethnic, social and cultural origins throughout Europe. Our project is more in keeping with the evolution of our society into a multicultural one that MAY allow our pupils and teachers to discover other schools and other daily lives reality in other different countries in Europe.

The management team supports the initiative, and has as a line of work to try to give a European dimension to the school, involving it in European projects, which allow our students to have a more global training, and acquire linguistic, multicultural and professional competences within a scope supranational, which are considered very necessary for their near future and that will greatly improve their employability and their personal autonomy, too.
