The Leonardo Da Vinci school is a concerted teaching center, active since 2009. It’s a CAI – ESO school interval, from 4 months to 16 years. Our center offers a continuous school day, in addition to school hours, it has a wide range of activities and services that give families the opportunity to reconcile their working hours with their family. Our center opens its doors daily at 07:45 a.m. with the morning service until the time students start their classes, at 2:00 p.m. the dining room service begins until 4:00 p.m. time at which extracurricular activities begin. We also offer service in leisure school holidays for Easter, Christmas and summer.
Our school is located in the periphery of the city of Cartagena, city and municipality located next to the Mediterranean Sea in the autonomous community of the Region of Murcia, of which it is legislative capital. It has 218.210 inhabitants, making it the twenty-fourth Spanish city in population. More of the 30% of the total population is made by Roma families.
Our center, has very heterogeneous students as the slums of San Antonio Abad and Barreros, both of a very depressed socioeconomic level and with a high percentage of immigrant population, especially Moroccan, we must add a group of social housing that adjoin with the Institute and that they contribute students of gypsy ethnicity, with a very low economic level.
It is our task to integrate every student in the culture to which he/she belongs: it is fundamental to us to ensure that each of our pupils, whatever his/her personal aptitudes may be, is exposed to the linguistic, literary, philosophical, anthropological, scientific, artistic and religious knowledge. All the teachers and the staff jointly make every effort to improve the quality of their teaching and to meet students’ needs. The Leonardo da Vinci school offers through its own educational plan, a quality educational option with professionals highly committed to families and students. Our goal is to train people capable of adapting to changes, creative and with social and environmental awareness.
