MISSION. VIEW AND VALUES
La Salle Maravillas is a Christian school whose mission is to educate people with initiative, ability to adapt and to transform their surroundings.
Our direction is established by:
- the search of academic excellence in the vanguard of education
- the unbreakable compromise with the families in the education of their children
- the flexibility that allows us to be the school that each child needs
Our direction is set by the conviction that shaping enterprising people that are able to imagine, plan and develop ideas in a creative way is the best path for a better society.
EDUCATION IN VALUES
Educating is something more than instructing/training. People need some values that give sense to what they learn and practice, to offer their wisdom to the service of their fellow men.
Our values are:
- Personal reflection
CENTRE WITH PASTORAL ACTIVITIES
Evangelizing proposal implicitly and explicitly
Viewing the person from the figure of Jesus of Nazareth
Initiation to the proximity and the company of God
THERE ARE NOT
There aren’t two identical people. And it also happens to children. Therefore, each of them deserves to find their own way and to develop themselves boosting their capacities to the maximum.
Receiving a constant support from an extensive Department of Orientation, with fluent communication with the family and in an extensive tutorial work, we attend to each child, every single one of our protagonists, in a very personal way, making it possible for them to find their own place.
You learn better if you live it with passion. Every detail of learning starts with the experience and ends in the emotion to connect education, growth and life.
The school is not a place to receive education but a place where to live. To achieve it, we have acquired the best tools:
Active methodologies that guarantee a learning that is experiential, practical, entertaining and in community (cooperative learning, project based learning, gamification or education through games, flipped classroom…)
A learning based in competences, more coherent with the global formation of the person.
A solid scientific base, the neuro-education that endorses this meditated methodological position.
TECHNOLOGIES APPLIED TO TEACHING
FOR THE FUTURE
We have supplied the school with multiple technological tools that help us as support in the learning process and at the same time allow us to discover that nothing substitutes human interaction.
In such a changing subject as technologies are, our plan is to strengthen the digital competence favoring the flexibility to work in different scenarios and digital devices, knowing that technology is at the learning’s service and to improve communication between people.
Languages are an excellent vehicle to communicate with people that can provide us with interesting ideas and experiences. They are also a priority for an appropriate integration in today’s current society.
These are the reasons why, since three years of age, our students are exposed to English in a very intensive way, and to French since 11 years of age, as a second language.
This provides them with a very high level in both languages, measurable in the external exams they are able to take throughout their school life (Cambridge and the Institut Francaise).
In addition, we offer cultural exchanges, staying at school abroad and a wide variety of activities that will make learning a language an adventure.
DEVELOPING CULTURE AND ART
WHAT IS YOUR
Through a wide Cultural Plan, we get our students in touch with the broad cultural and artistic richness that surround us, so they can find their vision and, in their own way, how to contribute to that patrimony that will be given to the next generations.
Multiple experiences are in that cultural itinerary, starting in Pre-K and finishing, for those that want it, in the Artistic Baccalaureate.
LEISURE AND FREE TIME
There are many ways to get to know yourself and others. Mountains, a river, camping out, St. James’ Way…
In the school we offer all these possibilities to enjoy all these different experiences that the city noise usually deprives us of. There is no doubt that these are the stars in the growing journey of our students that will never stop shining for the rest of their days.
GETTING BACK UP
Sports are an excellent experience to develop values such as cohabitation, self-improvement, effort and persistence.
This is why we promote physical exercise and sports from very early ages and we favor healthy competition and team spirit.
THEY WILL BE
THEY WANT TO BE
We prepare our boys and girls to be the men and women of the 21st century that will add value to our future society.
Everyone “will be whatever they want to be” thanks to an integral education that respects the rhythm and potential of each student from the beginning.
To ensure that we focus on educating, orienting and focusing them towards their academic and professional future.
