The Ave Maria Schools of Granada have been educating and training generations of students for more than 128 years. The illusion of our educational community is continue growing and adapting to the needs of our complex and actual society. Today we work in it almost 400 people between teachers and educational staff with a great vocation and commitment. The mail goal of our School is: To develop all the human potential of each boy and girl, promoting their affective, social, intellectual, moral and religious growth, through a united effort of the whole school community; in an attitude of deep love and respect for the person, the family and society An essential characteristic of the Active School are its cheerful, dynamic and boisterous classrooms. This is a consequence of the creative and productive work in which the students have as much participation like the teacher. In this type of school, deductive or inductive analytical procedures prevail for the cognitive development of children.
Andrés Manjón carries out a methodology in which the teaching-learning process of the student is produced through play, outdoors and in interaction with nature. This type of school we have to understand it as a reaction to the classic school, memory and gloomy that lived in his home school. We can conclude that the pedagogy of the canon of Granada is summarized in four basic pillars: Education must be fun, teaching must be active, teaching must be rural, teaching must be methodical.
