Nevertheless, it should be emphasized that the majority of students continue their studies at university. Although characterized as a high school aimed at teaching students who will take higher education, Liceo “Galileo Galilei” is developing strategies and inclusive teaching methods suited to both the continuation of the studies or to cope with the  world of work.

IES Nueva Isleta Tony Gallardo

Adress:
Carretera General de Las Coloradas nº1
35009 Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain

The IES Nueva Isleta-Toni Gallardo is both a grammar and vocational school. It is located at a urban area of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the main town and co-capital of the Canary Islands (one of the 7 European ultra peripheral regions), Spain. Students come to school at the age of 12 and they usually finish the compulsory education at 16. From this age they can choose between secondary vocational training and pre-college studies.
The school also offers technical education at a post-secondary level.
There are around 300 students. Regarding the facilities, the building has around 25 classrooms, a gym, a sport court and 3 workshops; some of the classrooms are for specific purposes: Computer Rooms, Multimedia Room. Smart blackboards and projectors are available in many classrooms. Internet connections are not always reliable, though. There are also a library and an assembly hall for around 100 people.
The school is in La Isleta district, a very popular quarter near Las Palmas de Gran Canaria harbour and port. In this sense, contact with many different cultures is intrinsic to the area, which at the same time maintains its own identity characteristics within the town: the local community feels proud of belonging to La Isleta. Immigration has played an important role in Spain for the last years, and this area has not been alien to this. Although many immigrants are leaving the country now due to the current economic crisis, the school still counts with students from other areas of Spain and abroad (mostly from Africa and Latin America). There are also some Roma students. There are around 10 diagnosed students with special needs.
There have been behavioural problems with several students in the past, but the situation has improved and the school can be described now as a quiet one. The level of academic achievement, however, is lower than the average for schools in the Canary Islands. It is a fact, besides, that only around 20% of parents have got a university degree and their socio-cultural level could be established as medium-low/low.
The school has been very active with European projects (it has participated in six Comenius projects, at least), and teachers from all fields (languages, physics, electricity, history, arts, maths…) have been involved in those projects. Around one third of the current school staff can speak English. French, German, Portuguese, Italian and, of course, Spanish are languages also spoken by some teachers.

logoebsbrancoWe are a school teaching all levels of education from kindergarten to upper seconday education. Our school is composed of different buidings located in the different villages of the municipality of Madalena. The main building is in the town of Madalena and includes students from the age of 10 until they complete upper secondary education, normally at the age of 17-18. Our school has a total number of  852 students, of which 126 are upper secondary students, 205 are lower secondary students, 130 are kindergarten and the remaining are basic education students. We are a general education school which offers different options to upper secondary students in partnership with the other two secondary schools on the island. Pico Island is an island of the small archipelago of the Azores, a Portuguese Autonomous Region. The island has a population of approximately 15,000 inhabitants and the council of Madalena, where the school is located, has about 6,000 inhabitants. It is a rural island, depending mainly on cattle breeding, milk and dairy products, and fishing. The social and economic backgound of our community may be considered underpriviledged once 55,8% of our students benefit from school financial support. Due to our distance to continental Europe, projects like this one are an opportunity for students and teachers to cooperate effectively with other European schools and become aware of the European diversity. At the same time, the location of our school may be considered a privileged one, due to the fact that our archipelago emerged from the mid atlantic ridge and volcanic activity is still visible. Pico island has an active volcano and the island has different parts of its territory included in the Azores Geosite. Another advantage of our school is our close relationship with Faial and São Jorge’s islands, as well as a good partnership with university departments related with volcanology.
