Description of the school
Colegio Internacional Costa Adeje School is located in Adeje, a small town situated in the south-west of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. The school is attended by around 900 students and the school staff is about 75 teachers. Two years ago, the school received the ISO 9001 certificate.
Scope of work
There we work with students from nursery school (6 months) all the way to 2nd Bachillerato. The latter is the last year before students go to University.
The involved department
The teachers involved in the project come from the science and language fields. They have more than 15 years experience in teaching and own a university degree. Furthermore, they have attended several e-learning courses in order to improve their digital skills and have developed materials to use with their students.
Our focus in the project
As the school is located in a touristic area our students come from 35 different countries. This fact produces an international working environment. In addition, the organization puts a strong point in teaching languages. There are taught Spanish, English and German in all educational levels. Moreover our teaching goal is achieving high quality in education for all our students creating a disciplined, demanding and friendly atmosphere. Our main aims are to strive for excellence in education and effort.
Special expertise, skills, competences
Our school is the only member of the group working with secondary students.
During the last seven years we have let install digital boards at school in all classrooms. Since then all the teachers have been instructed in managing different e-learning methods. Moreover most of the teachers are developing e-learning materials to use with their students.
We have also experience in working in international teams, since eight years ago we developed a Comenius project cooperating with all teams involved in order to achieve our objectives successfully. Furthermore we are defining, implementing and evaluating quality criteria focused on learners needs at the secondary education. As we received two years ago the ISO 9001 all school staff is involved in quality working processes.
