Quality, satisfaction and results
Educational excellence defines the outstanding characteristics of an institution and requires that all of a school’s areas or programmes are aligned to achieve the best possible results. The ultimate aim always comes down to providing students with a top-quality education.
The centres belonging to the Best Schools in Spain network have high quality standards and a vocation for excellence.
Consequently, they focus their efforts on continuous improvement to achieve perfection, which involves constantly adapting themselves
to education, society, technology or the demands of the labour market.
Excellence can be measured using indicators that are closely linked to human, intellectual or social-emotional development aspects, to name but a few.
