The main goal objective in Secondary Education is for the students to be able to acquire the tools that will enable them to understand the world. We want them to be people to intervene in an active and critical way in the plural, diverse and changing society we live in.
Throughout Secondary Education learning is built up within a methodology based on cooperative learning and competence, in which the students can develop their own personal autonomy.
This academic stage coincides with their adolescence, and that is why we base vital importance on tutorial action. Students, families and all the teachers work together to guide pupils in their learning process. We also educate them in values, so that the student acquires the abilities to live within our society.
The school offers two groups in each form year. The ratio in Secondary Education is 30 students per class. But in order to reach each pupil in an individual way, instrumental subjects (Maths, Catalan, Spanish and English) and Tutorial lessons are always organised in small groups.
The timetable is from 9-14h and from 15-17h. 1st and 2nd of ESO students finish lessons at 13h two days a week, and 3rd and 4th ESO students have a free afternoon. That makes a total of 33 hours of class a week.
In the same way, other services as psycho pedagogical assistance, early welcome, bus service, dining facilities with a monitor service and also various extra school activities are offered. Not forgetting Mertixell’s own Language Academy.
