What do former pupils of Agora Lledó IS think?
“Educating people who are prepared to achieve their dreams, and who have a capacity for personal and academic self-improvement, within the context of an education based on values”. This is the educational philosophy at Agora Lledó International School. The School is aware that results come from the efforts, integrity and dedication of a great team whose main objective is to educate true citizens of an ever-changing, globalised and highly competitive world, for which pupils of Agora Lledó International School, whatever they decide, will be prepared. This is how some of the school’s former pupils have reflected on their time here.
“In my opinion, studying at Lledó has offered me things which, otherwise, I would have taken longer to acquire, or just wouldn’t have achieved. For example, now that I am at university, I really notice the influence of the methodology applied here, so the change has not come as a shock to me and, in fact, it surprises me to see that my classmates struggle with things that here were part of day-to-day life, such as pieces of work with a suitable bibliography, or on a more open topic. Above all, I am glad that the theory I learnt here had more practical applications, and that there was rarely only one correct response, so that I didn’t have to memorise, but learn. This is something which I now find incredibly useful.”
“The experience I had at Lledó International School throughout my academic studies has allowed me to develop study strategies and habits which have given me excellent results. Furthermore, having the opportunity to study the International Baccalaureate enabled me to acquire critical thought, which today is vital. The constant work by the teachers at the school boosted the intelligences that we all possess, and allowed us to develop new ones. In my case, it enabled me to set my own goals and to reach the objective that I chose for myself. Right now, I am studying the university degree which I chose. And what’s more important, I believe that the school has educated me to be an ethically responsible and socially active person. Without doubt, I would recommend this school to anyone.”
“I am in my second year of Aerospace Engineering at Ohio State University. The first year was very difficult but I was able to finish it with very good academic results (3 out of 4 average). This University is one of the 40 best in the world rankings and one of the 15 best for the degree I am studying. I am here, among other things, thanks to the International Baccalaureate which I studied at school. The admissions process was very difficult and an international point scale like the IB helped me a lot.”
“I know that without effort and dedication it is impossible to achieve what we set out to, but if you also find in your teachers people who know how to motivate you and stimulate that capacity, the result is hugely positive, that’s why I want to express my thanks from here for the support and dedication of all my teachers at Lledó School and in particular, to my tutors Ángela and Ester who knew how to motivate me to be able to achieve what I wanted to.”
