ESO (Obligatory Secondary Education)
At the EIC, we are committed to educating responsible, autonomous, creative, enterprising people and leaders. To achieve this, in secondary school, our pedagogical system finds the perfect balance between the four key areas of knowledge: science, technology, humanities and art, along with physical activity and sport.
Students take part in discussions, carry out group projects and cooperative work, at school and outside school. Robotics, programming and laboratory practices are common activities. We encourage the value of speech, oral and written expression, and the ability to deliver presentations.
We also offer several Baccalaureate options: the National Baccalaureate (LOE), Scientific or Social Baccalaureate; combining the National Baccalaureate with the International Baccalaureate, or exclusively undertaking the International Baccalaureate (IB).
We are an active school that fosters a lively and diverse school year, with countless opportunities for learning and development during thematic weeks, such as Grandparents’ Week, Science Week, Maths Week, Literary Week and Sports Week. We also organise cultural excursions, welcome visitors and celebrate special times of year such as Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Chinese New Year, Carnival, La Castanyada and Halloween, among others. Students deliver presentations, take part in debates and enter local, national or international competitions. We finish off the school year with summer camps for each school year, adapted to each age group, which for some years are exchanges with schools in other countries, such as Germany, Belgium or Japan.
