Our school is located in a disadvantaged area socially, culturally and economically, and incorporated a project called: Educational Territories of Priority Intervention (TEIP).
Our school has been working hard on issues related to the rules, behaviors, cultural values and citizenship. All our classes have a weekly time to work on civic education in these and other related issues are worked out. All students of grads 7th and 8th also have a weekly hour of ICT and, in both grads, they work out the basics of computer programming. We believe that will be very useful once every one will need to work with computer applications and customize them to the needs they want. The ones who develop these skills will be better prepared to improve on their future professional and social roles.
