A little history
We commenced our school activities in the neighbourhood of Intxaurrondo in 1974. Since then we have educated and seen thousands of children grow, each one of them unique.
Years later, we created the Tamborrada (drumming procession) company and for more than 30 years we have participated in the infant tamborrada in San Sebastian.
Currently, and since 2000, we have one of the most popular and complete Infant Schools (ages 0-2) in the area.
Furthermore, we have always been committed to Basque and for this reason in 2009 we took on the D Model for the whole School. That same year we also initiated total immersion in English with highly qualified native English teachers.
Mission, view, values
Educating is much more than teaching.
It is transmitting values, it is preparing students for the challenges in the world, it is developing curiosity and inquisitiveness, it is fostering tolerance and respect.
Our mission is to teach them to be happy so that they have confidence in themselves and become what they want to be.
We want our students to grow in all respects, and for this we incorporate the most avant-garde teaching techniques.
We promote a positive and creative educational environment based on human and Christian values, cooperating in the construction of a more supportive and open world.
