Secondary education in Mas Camarena develops the students’ skills and abilities to enable them to successfully continue further education.
In Secondary Education we base learning on Project-Based Learning and Cross-curricular Projects. The objective of this is to unify different subjects with a common thread. This methodology can take place thanks to the implementation and develoment of technology in the Centre. The evaluation is done through specific evaluation rubrics for each project. It is a teaching strategy which allows the achievement of certain educational objectives stemming from the interests of the students. This is reached through a combination of actions, interactions and resources, all set out to solve the problem and produce a result. The students build their own learning experience.
Due to the high motivation of the students and the level of learning achieved the results are very satisfying.
- Small class groups.
- Individual attention.
- Excellent ambience in the classrooms.

- As class numbers are limited to twenty students, teachers are able to provide greater individual attention to each student, therefore creating an excellent environment of hard work, tolerance and cooperation.
- In order to allow time for subjects such as technology, the sciences, laboratory, projects, the number of classes each week is increased to 35 in secondary. In 1st ESO students continue to study the second foreign language taken up 5th primary; French, German and Mandarin Chinese. There are ten weekly lessons in English, taught by native speakers and we focus on the preparation of official Cambridge University and “Escuela Oficial de Idiomas” examinations.
