High School Vistazul is located in the outskirts of Dos Hermanas, a town 14 kilometres from Seville, Andalucia (southern Spain). Dos Hermanas has a population of around 120.000 people. The neighbouring area is inhabited by working class families of a middle social and economic background. Our school was founded in 1991. Today there are 600 students, 51 teachers and 9 more non-teaching staff (managing staff, caretakers, special needs assistants and cleaners). Our school provides compulsory secondary education, non compulsory A-level and two vocational training programmes: pharmacy (intermediate degree) and childhood education (higher degree).
There is a great variety of participation of students regarding age (from 12 to 18 years of age), since we have many educational levels being provided by our school, but there is little variety in terms of different ethnic groups. Our school is also an integration school, having a number of around 20 students with different special educational needs who attend the integration classroom as part of their weekly schedule, some of whom are participating in the project.
