In a stage such as adolescence, in which the students begin to demand greater freedom and autonomy from adults, it is also essential to instruct them in responsibility and self-discipline. The development of critical thinking in regards to their own actions is essential for achieving responsible freedom. This justifies the importance that the teaching of values has in this stage.
At the academic level, the School is aware that the objective of the majority of students and their families is to continue their education at the Baccalaureate level after completing the Secondary Level, and to study at university later on. To that end, the School sets suitable educational standards depending upon school year and age. In this sense, we attach particular importance to the key areas as they are considered fundamental to the further development of the whole curriculum.
In the later years of this stage, the School offers its students a series of non-obligatory subjects that guarantee the students’ optimal preparation for the Baccalaureate level and place enormous importance on academic and professional guidance that enable students to choose the option best-suited for their interests and abilities.
