Features of Bell-lloc’s upper secondary school

ORGANISATIONAL FLEXIBILITY

Our upper secondary school offers a wide range of options that allow us  to attend to each student’s profile and needs in a customised way.

We also offer the possibility of pursuing a dual baccalaureate, which combines the national baccalaureate with the IB (International Baccalaureate), allowing them to obtain the double qualification in two academic years.

 

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

We have expert and ongoing teaching staff who work with active methodologies, focused on student learning.

We encourage the participation of our students in numerous academic competitions and research contests.

 

CUSTOMISED MONITORING

Each student has a personal tutor who accompanies them and helps them grow in personal and academic aspects.

Students are treated in a climate that is academic and a good working environment.

 

ACADEMIC GUIDANCE

Throughout the two-year baccalaureate course, students enjoy a wide range of educational activities aimed at discovering their future academic orientation.

 

INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE

Bell-lloc offers high school students the opportunity to pursue the International Baccalaureate. These studies are aimed at students with a good academic record who want to study some specific subjects through an internationally recognised programme.
