Testimonials

What our children are saying

How do you know if someone loves for real? How can we know love? The one that is true, because sometimes people say – I love you -,.but it doesn’t look like they really mean it... or they say it, but then they do things that… I don’t know… I don’t think that is Love... like… true love?. - Leire, 11

We do not count for anything on the subject of the sport, it is always soccer and basketball ... it would be nice if there would be track and field, and volleyball in all schools because that way we could participate the girls, but it is always the same. It's not fair. - Paula, 13

I play on the school's football league, and I don't understand that there are parents who get upset during the games, and they start screaming to us from outside. They're worse than the coach! And sometimes they start swearing and insulting, and if we lose you wouldn't believe the anger. - Aitor, 14

The problem of the school climate is that teachers don't care about us. They teach the class, period. To me, they are here just because, they only intervene when there is a big issue going on, and sometimes not even that because the director or the head of studies deals with it. - Roberto, 15

I think overall the parents are too busy with their things, their jobs and stuff, and when they have time they prefer to do their own things rather than worrying about how we are. They see the grades, period. They only care about the grades. - Ana, 13
