Colegio Internacional Torrequebrada’s MISSION answers the questions about our school: “why” and “what for”?
To help today’s children develop their potential and become the men and women of tomorrow; able to successfully lead their personal and professional lives and rise to social challenges and responsibilities.
In order to achieve its Mission, Colegio Internacional Torrequebrada encourages a passion for learning, respect for others and, through its diversity and quest for excellence, we commit to developing the students’ knowledge, abilities and values.
Where we come from
We want to accompany children and young people through the fifteen years of their schooling so that they are able to think independently and express themselves with confidence, so that they can have diverse opinions, think critically and be able to communicate effectively and persuasively in at least three languages.
We want them to be free, independent citizens, capable of making decisions and taking responsibility for their own learning.
We want to see them walking steadily towards their future, aware of their own and others’ abilities, grateful, resilient and bold.
We want them – yes, I do! – to feel that they are explorers of their own lives, that they enjoy the privilege of discovering, comprehending and projecting their horizons.
I want – YES, we want! – that our great legacy be the wings and roots they will need as heirs to our motto: “A world of possibilities”.
We want to be a school that stands for action – ‘EduAcción’ (Education in Action!) – with the hope that in twenty years’ time they will be able to tell us that we got something wrong, but also that we got something right; that we were not perfect, but that we did not conform. And, above all, that we made an effort and worked hard to give them the education they deserve and need.
