Talent developement

Academic Excellence

Our aim is to become experts in talent-developmentand personalization of the learning process. We train students to become autonomous, responsible, and self-driven. Adaptability, collaboration, and initiative are three of the most demanding skills in the workplace. To develop these and other skills, we combine methodologies that address the different learning styles of every student

Our goal is to support students in their personal and academic development. Our tutors pursue a familiar approach with special focus on values and ethic in strengthen their self-esteem. A self-confident student, who is not afraid of making mistakes, will be able to face any challenge.

At Liceo Sorolla we have gone from reactive to proactive tutoring. Through a Personal Improvement Plan (PIP), students must establish and work on their own personal and academic goals.

Throughout the year, students meet with their tutors to design strategies, set objectives, and present learning evidence. At the end of the school year, they will carry out a self-evaluation in which they will present, in a journal format, their growth process. Each student at the school, from elementary to high school, has their own PIP that evolves over the years.

We take university exams very seriously. In the last 15 years our school has managed to position itself regularly among the top 30 schools in the EvAU state tests. In recent years, we have also achieved high level results in the International Baccalaureate exams (IB).
