Ten different types of school, with unique flexibility to switch from one type to another, means we can offer every young person a path to educational achievement tailored to his or her current needs.

We are proud of our long tradition yet our approach to education is modern and dynamic, as it has always been.
* Developing potential.
* Enabling students to discover their individuality within the community, to explore new areas of interest and to develop personal motivation.

We believe that everyone can succeed but not all students learn in the same way and sometimes different approaches are necessary.
