Welcome to the Secondary stage. My name is Malén Ferrer and I am the Coordinator of the Secondary and Baccalaureate stages. I have been working as a coordinator for 12 years, and I am also a geography teacher.
This period, which includes the early and middle stages of adolescence, is a particularly critical time for personal and intellectual development. As a result, this calls for a programme that helps our students appreciate and understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world, as well as helping them to become critical thinkers with the ability to think for themselves. Learning to learn and to evaluate information critically is as important as learning the contents of the course subjects themselves.
