International School Peniscola is a school that has a wide experience in education and also modern and newly-made facilities. The Edificio Neo of Primary and Secondary school is new, and the buildings of Pre-school, Block A and Block B, are constantly renewed. All the buildings meet the latest regulations required for education. The Edificio Agora is being built, and is a building that has a similar style as a university and will include the classrooms for Bachillerato (A Levels) and advanced degrees, laboratories, a new dining room and a concert hall. The buildings are certified as A++, which means that they own the maximum grade in energy efficiency.
Designed for learning.
The Edificio Neo and the future Edificio Agora have been designed to accomplish their main task: creating an ideal atmosphere for learning. This atmosphere is achieved thanks to the fact of designing the appropriate space of classrooms according to the number of students and having interactive whiteboards and audio and video system in each classroom, all of these resources being at the disposal of the teachers.
They also hold great transparency to get natural light, which favours the proactive action, air-conditioned systems that improve oxygenation and concentration, and an acoustic treatment that allows to understand easily the teachers’ explanations. Classrooms are designed so that students as well as teachers can carry out cooperative processes. Both buildings have garden area in the inside that encourages meetings and idea exchanges.
The location of the International School Peñiscola is unbeatable. It is situated in the middle of the land, 200 m from the Mediterranean Sea and 5 minutes from the towns of Benicarlo and Peniscola, allowing parents and students to access from a comfortable cycle lane. It has not traffic pollution and enjoys unbeatable views to vegetation and rural environment. As well there is a wide parking available if families prefer to bring their children. This small distance from the urban centre makes easier to manage the issues associated with the ages of Secondary school and Bachillerato (A Levels), such as smoking or any other dependencies.
International School Peniscola is a centre whose dimensions are easily controllable by the teaching team. It is made up of 30 classrooms, a large room of Dalcroze eurhythmics, a cinema/meeting room, a library, laboratories, a sports centre/concert hall, dining room, kitchen, a room for plastic arts, a recording studio and an ecological vegetable garden. All of this is complemented by playgrounds, sports tracks, gardens and communal spaces to satisfy all the needs of our students.
