"La Rosaleda" High School started its activity in 1947 as a Union school of Vocational Training. It is said that its original design corresponded to facilities to accommodate a big hospital but once its different storeys and buildings were built they decided to turn it into a school instead. This is the reason why there are so many corridors and it is so spacious. In its first school year, 1947-1948, there were 210 students and the number of them has been increasing over the years. Nowadays, there are around 2.300 students.
Regardless of the political reasons it was built for, the social work that has been carrying out during all these years has allowed young people from very humble families, with very unfavorable economic situations, to study a vocational course or to go to university.
Although, it is well known as a Vocational Training school, within the about 70,000 square meters it owns, it offers most of the existing different educational modalities and also pays special attention to the integration and effective inclusion of all students such as hearing impaired students and some others with special needs, who have been able to integrate satisfactorily in our school community.
At present, we offer a wide range of studies, from Vocational Training courses belonging to the following fields: Tourism, Hospitality, Cookery, Trade , Secretarial studies, Woodwork, Construction Operations and Interior Design, Printing and Graphic Arts, Gardening, Telecommunication, Electronics,  Metal work, Air conditioning and Refrigeration, Welding, Vehicle mechanics and Sport and Physical Activity Animation to Baccalaureate in Humanities, Social Science , Science and Music and Art . We also have a Bilingual program in Baccalaureate and in a VTC in Catering services, online studies and upper secondary education for adults.
Bearing in mind this diverse and varied environment it is essential for us to work on cross-curricular topics and values which are so important for the integral development of our students regardless of what they are studying. In this context, the current project on cultural identity with our bilingual high school students is particularly relevant since the whole school community :  teachers, parents and students can benefit from the projects results and its dissemination.
Our school is open to the community; our facilities are used by Málaga football club and even by football children's teams that carry out extracurricular activities. Our classrooms are shared with students from the Residence adjacent to our school and thanks to a Higher Vocational Training course in Catering Management, we also have a large and spacious restaurant, open to all those who want to taste a quality menu at a good price, where our student do their training under the supervision and support of their teachers. Each year, too, “Open doors Days” are held in order to show our school to our visitors. Students’ works are displayed and activities and methodology are also explained to them.

Our school deals with cross-curricular topics whose contents are integrated in the different subjects of the different courses. The objectives that we want to seek is education for peace in order to instill in our students respect for societies and cultures different from their own ones,  multiculturalism, respect for human rights, social cohesion, gender equality, responsible consumption, cooperation and solidarity among people as well as the acquisition of values that promote respect for others and sustainable development.

The German Theoretical High School was founded in 1997. The school is destined for the German minority and all those who want to study in German and to know the German civilization and culture. The school attracts students from the county and the North-West of Romania. Due to this our students are from different  ethnics and confessions.
In the school learn more than 900 students, aged 6-19, under the guidance of 60 teachers. The high school students can choose from different fields of study: mathematics-informatics bilingual English, mathematics-informatics and philology. The second foreign language is Italian.
Since 1999 the students have had the possibility to take the DSD C1/B2 exam and the Cambridge exam and this project will help them to  practice foreign languages. The informatics graduates get a certificate that attest their IT knowledge and all students have the chance to take the ECDL exam too.
The number of students, contrary to demographic tendencies, has been continually increasing, thanks to the results our school has achieved in recent years. Even if the school is relatively young, it has traditions that are celebrated annually, like the Christmas Bazar, the Carnival, Doors Open Day, the Science Fair. The school also offers a series of extracurricular activities that our students can indulge in, like the choir, the German traditional dance group, the German and a Romanian theater group,  the editorial department of the bilingual Children’s Universe/Kinderwelt, the school radio, the Science Magazine. In addition to these activities, our students also participate in numerous projects and national and international contests. Our volunteers are collaborating with the "Caritas" Organisation and with the orphanage "Casa Maria" where they help the integration of the disabled children.

The school is located in a multicultural city with three ethnicities, Romanian, Hungarian and German, it is very close to the Hungarian and Ukrainian border. The school is an open space of multiculturalism, the subjects are taught in  the German language (as mother tongue), for the high school students we have bilingual classes with English. In addition to German and English, the students learn Italian as second foreign language after English. It is a common thing that most of our students speak very well 3-4 languages.  In our school we have Romanian, German and Hungarian students, therefore our students have very different backgrounds in terms of language, family, religion, social habits and lifestyle. It is one of the main goals of the school to educate young people in the spirit of respecting human rights and fundamental freedoms, in the spirit of dignity and tolerance.

This project is a good possibility for us to have an exchange of experiences and good practices in the field of languages, students will have the chance to develop their foreign language competences not only in English, but in the languages of the partners too, an opportunity to get to know different cultures directly, to make contact with people with different lifestyles and education, to learn to be tolerant and accept the differences around them. It will be also an opportunity to present our region, its history, beauty, UNESCO heritage to our partners.

The mission of the International European School is to prepare its pupils to meet the challenges of the 21st Century as citizens of a united and democratic Europe and the world, who are aware of their rights and are open to all races and cultures.
The school aims to become an exemplary centre for teaching and learning, a school that sets and achieves world class standards in multilingual education. This is based on the school's Pastoral and Social Education programme, and on accreditation to international educational organisations. The school aims to provide each pupil with an excellent foundation for the further study of national programmes within the framework of the International Baccalaureate.
The friendly and welcoming atmosphere is central to the school's Pastoral and Social Education Programme. There is no place at school for bullying, intolerance, violence, drugs or indifference to the problems of others.
Pupils are made aware of their rights, based on the school rules and on international declarations. Every pupil has the right to learn about their own religion at school.
Native and proficient English-speaking staff with the highest pedagogical qualifications ensure that each pupil receives individual attention in classes with a maximum number of twelve pupils.
Teachers assess the work of pupils according to objective criteria outlined in the school's Assessment Policy. Pupils also learn to assess their own work in order to develop a self-critical approach.
English is the language of instruction and communication in class. Every pupil also has the opportunity to study Polish language and culture. Other languages which can be studied are French, German, Spanish, Italian and Russian. Pupils can also learn about their own language, culture, traditions and history.
The Polish basic curriculum is taught in the Primary and Middle Schools. In the Middle School and High School, pupils are also prepared and entered for International British IGCSE and Advanced level examinations. The school's international curriculum enables pupils to make a smooth transition to similar schools in other countries. British examination certificates are recognised as Higher Education entrance qualifications by the most prestigious universities in Europe and throughout the world.
The educational philosophy developed by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) to serve the needs of multicultural environments has always been a rich source of inspiration for the school.
This includes all three of the IBO's programmes: Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the IB Diploma Programme. The school is authorized to offer the Diploma Programme of the International Baccalaureate Organization and to present candidates for examination.

In IES Warsaw we have an Multicultural environment that facilitate the communication in different languages. Our pupils have very different cultural backgrounds, so at IES we have to make an effort to understand the background and stimulate the quick adaptation of the pupils in the new class environment. Understand the particular needing of the pupils and develop Teacher skills is our first mission and in order to reach the goal we have all the time to improve our skills and cooperate with different Institutions and  ONG,  understanding and applying the new media technology to our communication and teaching methods.
The exchange will represent a unique possibility to understand better our Culture, to compare, to raise awareness about differences between the mindset of people from different European region and to encourage  the pupils to exchange experiences and opinions.
The collaboration with teachers will also be enhanced and the best practice exchange will enlarge Teachers knowledge and enrich the professional background.
