The education model of IES Miguel Catalán positions students as the protagonists of social change, fully integrating them and the school into the Coslada community. They accomplish this through various structures of students, teachers, and local organizations that are trained to work together to resolve conflicts, as well as through many service projects and a group-based learning structure. Students develop key leadership, evaluation, responsibility, and teamwork skills, and are empowered, empathetic agents of change by the end of their education.
