The general development of the School was giving harmoniously, with the strong support of parents, the contribution of teachers, workers and students collaboration. Much of the first facility was made on self construction with active participation of all the community.
All the ideals on which it was created have been consolidated and are now a reality. Innovative programs in which the student seeks to develop on the human, social, technical, artistic and sports fields.
