FACILITIES: INNOVATIVE SPACES

Facilities at SEK-Santa Isabel are based on flexible spaces that allow student-teacher collaboration and teamwork, and bring together all the necessary resources for learning.

The school has open and transparent spaces where:

  • Teachers and students are the protagonists.
  •  Greater flexibility is fostered in group management.
  • Learning is facilitated in environments designed according to the PYP methodology.

Our students learn inside classrooms, but part of their learning takes place outside. The school is located in the Barrio de Las Letras district and Madrid’s historic centre serves the students as the setting for different lessons.
