The proposal has been made with a view to providing an adequate response to the needs and objectives of the project. To this end, a modulation system has been chosen that facilitates its execution, at the same it is adapted to the urban conditions of the plot and the necessary differentiation between the different educational phases. The program is structured according to school levels and groups of activities and support (administrative area, sports area, services and facilities). The phases are connected by a central space that acts as a node and gives rise to two courtyards: one in the interior, and another one that communicates with the outer play courts. All this under an unitary cover that confers unit to the image of the building.
Children's classrooms are located on the ground floor, with facades to the south and east. In this way they are oriented towards the sun of the morning and of the noon in order to insure illumination
