Major accolade for Colegio Casa Azul
Colegio Casa Azul, located in the valley of La Orotava and currently celebrating its 40th anniversary during this school year, is one of three colleges in Tenerife included in the “Top 100 Best Colleges of Spain” compiled by the leading newspaper El Mundo.
This latest list was published on March 12th and is considered very prestigious. This is the first time that Colegio Casa Azul has been included.
This annual ranking of the best private colleges in Spain, in its 15th edition, includes a selection of private colleges which are identified as creators of excellence, having been analysed from a group of more than 1,000 education centres.
Throughout its 40 years, Colegio Casa Azul, which is owned by parents of the students, has maintained its identity as a family and friendly school.
It has teachers and students of various nationalities and this enriches the living and learning of the college. There are also a significant number of students and teachers at the school whose parents used to be at the college as well.
The college has a philosophy of co-existence and co-operation, offered through its curriculum pro-jects and personalised tutoring. This is embodied by the selfless dedication shown by the older students with the pupils in infant and primary education, helping the teaching staff and centre, including organising events, classes and so on.
Colegio Casa Azul has thus received public recognition of its excellence of the educational model of the centre , the level of English, as well as since its inception its prestige as a Centre of Teaching as a reference point in the Canaries.
All this plus the fact that of all the private colleges in the new ranking list of the best in Spain, it is the most economical.
