Our School

Mission, Vision and Values


We are a private, bilingual, catholic school with the mission of educating leaders of the future through academic excellence and integral formation, accompanied by personal guidance.


Our slogan “Semper altius”, expresses our desire to achieve, every day, the maximum integral development of our students, including intellectual, physical, moral, and human excellence.


At Highlands School Barcelona our values are commitments to our families:

  • Commitment to Collaboration:
    • Our goal is to collaborate with Highlands families to educate their children, as we understand that this is the only way to achieve the excellence we are looking for.
  • Commitment to Academics:
    • Our educational project, which is comprised of 4 areas, aims to improve the personal maturity and moral development of each student, complemented by the pursuit of academic excellence so that each student can achieve his or her personal best.
  • Commitment to Moral Values:
    • Our school promotes catholic values with absolute liberty and respect to parents and pupils. That commitment offers the opportunity to our pupils to acquire moral values which will accompany them for all their life.
  • Commitment to Professionalism:
    • Highlands School has a professional and international team focused uniquely and exclusively on achieving excellence in their pupils and improving, day by day, their learning techniques. They are great professionals with a lot of experience in pedagogical, human, and social fields. They are responsible for pupil attaining a high academic level.
  • Social compromise:
    • With our program Highlands in Action, we are committed to helping people in need through social projects done by our pupils and families. These projects are key for their personal development.


Highlands School Barcelona was born with the idea of offering an innovation, vanguard, and distinctive catholic school, with a high level of English within the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona. That idea became reality in 2000. Highlands School Barcelonahas managed to make a name in Catalan society offering a quality service, looking towards the future but without forgetting it origins.

Nowadays, Highlands School Barcelona is going through a period of remodeling, moving towards to an international projection, helped by a privileged location close to Barcelona and with a unique project in the city.

Calle Monestir – 2004 y Esplugues Llobregat – 2012


Highlands School Barcelona is located on 19,000 m2 in Esplugues de Llobregat (Barcelona), in a residential area near to the district of Pedralbes with modern facilities that have been adapted to provide the best INTEGRAL FORMATION.

Every schooling stage has its own independent area in order to provide the right formation to each age group. Furthermore, it enables us to offer greater personalised attention for personal development given that we place the pupil at the centre of the education process.

The 10,000 m2 of sports facilities and playing fields enable us to form our pupils in the culture of sport as an alternative leisure option and as a way to complement our human formation through sport: teamwork, overcoming barriers, effort, etc.
