This school project started in 2008 from a group of teachers frustrated with traditional education. They decide to funnel this frustration and present a school project “as it should be”, as they say.

In this high school, teachers don’t conceive their job as the simple transmission of a certain quantity of knowledge; they go to a further step. Their mission is to help their students in developing themselves as ethic and socially committed people, who try to transmit a set of values considered essential for their educational, affective and social development. Today they escort schools in the incorporation of social commitment as a learning element.
