Celestin Freinet School

OECD – Innovative Learning Environment Project. A school aimed at students from disadvantaged backgrounds with special needs, the Escuela Celestin Freinet employs the Freinet pedagogy and horizontal teams to provide educational support to all students. The Freinet pedagogy is focused on the possibilities and needs of the child, introducing a natural method to learn in school in the same way you can learn in life. As such, there is an emphasis on inquiry-based learning. Learning is facilitated by interdisciplinary specialists, including psychologists and a speech therapist. Parental involvement is also common, and parental class attendance and the supportive and classroom climate are thought to contribute to enhancing learning. Teaching and learning are a team effort, with periodic evaluations with standardized tests and daily breaks for silent reading and enjoyment of classical music.
