The school building sits in open green space with mature trees on Mount Artxanda, which is one of the surrounding hills overlooking Bilbao, ten mins from the centre of town. Families can either drive (free parking available outside the school) or use public transport: bus, metro or the funicular railway.
The school is built on the Montessori principles of Care of Oneself, Care of One Another and Care of the Environment. The full curriculum is available in all the spaces to all ages and the routines happen in a non-directive and non-instructive way. They are conceived to allow children to initiate their own activity in an spontaneous and purposeful way.
