The Institutions

CEIP Rosa de Gálvez

Committed to the development of our pupils multiple intelligences, focusing on the linguistic one as a facilitator tool to reach the others.

The history

In constant growth

In spite of being a very new school since it has been offering its services for almost 8 years, Rosa de Gálvez has gradually increased the number of enrolled pupils, teachers and families by reaching today the amount of 755 students and 42 teachers, and what is more, the 80% of them has a permanent job in the school. Related to families, more than 75% of them is quite involved in their children education and school life.

Though we are located in a socially depressed district (palma-palmilla), both the extraordinary growth of one of the areas belonging to this district and the greater influence on the schooling of the center (Virreina), have contributed to stablish the socio-cultural level of the center within a medium-high Andalusian level. This situation given by the high birth rate of this specific area, the family cultural level and above all, by the direct involvement of our faculty and by the good school-family relationship has positioned our center within the 10% of the best educational centers within the linguistic scope according to the external tests (ESCALA) carried out by the Junta de Andalucia every year.

The working network

The quality of its professors and research groups

Our center is seriously committed to the development of our pupils multiple intelligences, focusing on the linguistic one as a facilitator tool to reach the others. One of our main goals is to make competent people in the linguistic field as it is stated in our current legislation of both school stages.

Close relationship between the planning of the three departments with the idea of establishing a globalized learning. Shared leadership due to the team work formed by the coordinators of the different programs stablish the annual line of action as the best way to organise and give coherence and effectiveness to extra-curricular activities.
