Salesians Donostia is an international school for children aged 0 to 16 years, that offers the opportunity to love learning, develop and grow intellectually, personally and socially.
Because educating is much more. It is giving value to emotions, it is preparing students for the challenges of the world, it is developing in them creativity and inquisitiveness, it is encouraging critical thinking.
It is learning to be happy to become what they want to be.
From ages 0 to 6 years is when there is greater neuroplasticity and an incredible learning capacity. With our stimulation programmes we promote good neuronal organisation and we encourage learning.
We put into practice didactical proposals in which the students work in groups to optimise their own learning.
Our present-day reality is tri-lingual. It is essential to be proficient in English and Basque so as to eliminate frontiers. Our English teachers are native-speakers with the highest qualification, Proficiency.
We use pedagogical tools such as project-based learning, cooperative working, teaching for comprehension, thinking strategies. In addition, we have a team of psychologists, education specialists and speech therapists to detect and overcome student learning difficulties.
Our emotional state conditions our learning. In Salesians Donostia we promote a pleasant and serene atmosphere where time is given to caring, respect for and recognition of emotions.
Given that the values on which our education is based are universal, Salesian schools have expanded throughout the world.
Everyone has special skills and characteristics, and our work is to identify and strengthen them.
They are an essential element in the education of each child, so their own education and skills as teachers are crucial.
