Stages

etapas ok-01We endeavour and are committed to obtaining the best results from our pupils and guaranteeing them the best preparation as people for success in what they become and what they do so that, when tomorrow comes, they are able to successfully complete higher education. To that end, we have a well-grounded syllabus with clear educational objectives and extensive content in the areas of science, the humanities and art.

At our centre, we accept pupils between 1 and 18 years of age. Highlands School Barcelona plans all schooling stages with a maximum of 2 groups until completing Higher Secondary with a maximum of 750 pupils.

Furthermore, we offer comprehensive formation in learning skills and learning tools. We seek not only to provide pupils with knowledge but also to enable them to apply that knowledge at any time and in any aspect of their lives.

Differentiated Education

Nowadays, differentiated education is an avant-garde characteristic of the best education models. Based on an approach whereby the educational objectives and contents are the same for both boys and girls, differentiated education is an education system with a teaching style adapted to each gender to optimise their development and learning.

Medical science has identified differences in the brains of boys and girls. In general, a greater part of the cerebral cortex which is responsible for memory, attention, thought, and language is dedicated to verbal functioning in girls and dedicated to spatial and mechanical functioning in boys.

The cerebral cortex is just one example of how boys’ and girls’ brains differ. Even though their brains are different, however, there is no difference between what each gender can learn. At Highlands School Barcelona, we know the difference is in how they learn best. We take advantage of these differences in a gender specific learning environment, so we can teach in a way that caters to our students’ uniqueness. In that way, it helps to ensure that both boys and girls can reach their full potential.

In Infant school, classrooms are co-ed, but by the time our students reach first grade of Primary (6 years old), they are in gender specific classrooms, and our gender specific learning model continues all the way through Middle School. The beauty of our co-ed campus means we can still offer plenty of opportunities for socialization across every grade within each division during lunch, recess, clubs, and the numerous all school activities that are planned.
