  • Description


    I managed a high school with my parents,, we think that learning by doing is important, we want children to be happy at school , so it feels like home, is for this we thought the language workshops as a way of achieving greater social integration.

    this highschool is located in Villa El Salvador, a disctrict in the southside of Lima, this highschool has many years, there are many "private" highschools here, but this is one of the cheapest highschools because they will have more opportunities(to have skills to study abroad a master,phd etc) , we have a robotics lab, a Chemistry lab, ),
    we would like to develop new peojects in maths, science, art ,tecnology for the students.

    for example in the public school or state schools, they just offer the basics, in maths, and englsih , they need to study in another place to enter at Peruvian Universities
