In 2013 the construction of the first Impulso junior high-school was finished and classes started on March 4th. It is the first fulltime, secular, free high-school of private management in Uruguay. Located in Casavalle, it has 100 first-year students, who have been selected through a draw by a public notary. The education scheme is that of excellence, with a solid and highly qualified teaching and psycho-social team. The class schedule runs from Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm and Saturdays from 9am to 1pm. The students have breakfast, lunch and tea at the school. The emphasis is placed on reading and writing, with a strong stress in English, on science and math, and on educating on values.
On 27th April the official opening of the first Impulso High-school took place gathering national authorities, the students, their families, the businesses that support the project, organizations from the neighborhood and the teams of the High-school and the Foundation. We invite you to watch the video:
