VALLMONT is a State-Assisted Private School offering education targeted at the whole society. It provides bilingual education at all educational stages, with a realistic educational project based on the needs and characteristics of each pupil. It aims to respond to and satisfy the social needs required in a global world, respecting plurality and existing differences.
It is a non-confessional and ideologically neutral bilingual school; but it accommodates the ideological, religious and social pluralism of pupils and teachers, a reflection of the society in which we live. Therefore, we defend all the principles and values of the Constitution and we fully respect the recognised rights and liberties that it contains and those of applicable law.
Thanks to this partnership project we have created an Educational Community in which the individual, from whom the remaining values, rights and obligations derive, is considered as an absolute value, and society and nature represent the joint and global framework of individual personality. Education is therefore established as a process in permanent expansion, for the development of free and democratic men and women, who integrate in society with a critical and constructive spirit.
Our goals can be summarised by the following fundamental principles:
1.- Regulated education enhanced with continuous and personalised tutor-based monitoring of pupils in order to achieve the maximum development of skills of each pupil. As well as the guidance, support and collaboration of parents in all aspects related to the education of their children.
2.- Development of the values of commitment, responsibility, respect towards others, friendship and commitment to the environment.
3.- Importance of languages The whole of the School’s teaching process involves bilingualism in English, as a form of promoting the knowledge of languages and this is extended to other languages which are of the utmost importance in the current cultural, economic and working world. To do so, we have highly qualified teachers and native teaching assistants who help us to achieve continuous growth in our pupils.
