Our School is placed in Murcia, in the south-east of Spain. It is called “El Carmen” after the name of the neighbourhood.Historically we started in other building in 1941 but in 2005 we moved to the current one.As they neighbourhood, the school represents the heterogeneous and varied society in Murcia: 15% of the students are immigrants or immigrant descendants coming from 19 different nationalities.

Our school has around 70 teachers and 870 students. The latter, aged 12-18, study Compulsory Secondary Education (CSE) and Post-Compulsory Secondary Education/Bachillerato (PCSE).Students who do not get the secondary school certificate can study a vocational training cycle on Information and Communication Technologies in our school.
