Gresol International School’s key aim is to guarantee that all students are able to take on the challenges of the 21st century and apply to any university in the world. To this end, their new educational programme will be taught in English and follow the methodologies, assessment and learning goals of the American curriculum.
From Infants’ school to Baccalaureate, students at Gresol will gain the knowledge, skills and understanding to be creative, critical and independent thinkers. They will learn to be open minded, respectful and resilient citizens, capable of living anywhere in the world. Gresol’s motto, ‘we build projects for life’, sums up this ethos. Their exciting new educational programme is supported by ALEPH International Education, who have founded numerous International schools of outstanding reputation.
As we cannot be certain of the exact challenges today’s children will face in the future, the school helps students develop the knowledge, skills, understanding and personal values which will allow them to respond intelligently to any situation and be fully integrated into future society. Based on the concept that students are born creative, Gresol International School firmly believes that education should promote and support each pupil's creative ability and specific talents. The school offers a wide range of curricular and co-curricular programmes focusing on music, mathematics, sports, language, entrepreneurship, scientific thought, personal, social and emotional development, and ethical and moral values.
Through the American curriculum and the International Baccalaureate (IB), students will be able to enter any university in the world. This internationalisation will be reinforced by projects and collaborations with foreign schools and universities. Activities will include foreign exchanges for students and teachers with English-speaking schools, cooperative and collaborative learning projects and involvement in international events.
In this new stage, Gresol will focus on developing a specific range of skills, in particular communication, linguistic skills, self-discipline, emotional intelligence, and global awareness. Creative and Performing Arts, as well as Physical Education will play a crucial role in the pupils' studies, while new technologies will expand the range of teaching methodologies.
The school is situated in natural surroundings, just outside Terrassa in Vallès Occidental, only 30 minutes from Barcelona and within a 24,000 square metre site.
