Prepare and motivate our students for a rapidly changing world by instilling critical thinking skills, a global perspective, and a respect for the core values of honesty, loyalty, perseverance, and empathy.
Our Educational Vision
Motivation and security are key
We create a stimulating and safe work environment so that the student feels the necessary security to ask, question and experiment with the proposed learning.
We encourage the development of the ability to investigate and to innovate; we help children understand their strengths and weaknesses. We give them the necessary tools to achieve the objectives and meet the goals that are proposed.
Each student receives individualized treatment adapted to their personal characteristics and academic circumstances. Personalized tutoring is one of the pillars on which the centre's methodology is based. Each group has a tutor teacher who deals with issues such as coordinating relationships between teachers and students.
Primary school students take different external tests in order to objectively assess the academic level in different areas:
CAM (Autonomous Community of Madrid) for Language and Mathematics, Alliance Israellite Universelle for Judaism and MABIA (Network of schools in Israel Or Torah) for Hebrew and Judaism, Cambridge University for English (KET level).
Objectives and methodology
The objective of this stage is to train autonomous students, with a critical spirit, capable of integrating into a plural society, developing their self-esteem, respect and tolerance towards others.

Bilingual Program of the Community of Madrtid
We offer a bilingual educational project (Spanish-English), recognized by the Ministry of Education. The students work on the contents of subjects such as art and knowledge of the environment in English, in addition to the hours of the English language.
From 1º grade, the process of learning to read and write Hebrew begins. French is offered as an extra school.
Judaic values, traditions, and studies are intimately embedded in a strong curriculum of general studies where new technologies become a daily work tool inside and outside the educational environment.
Project Based Learning (PBL)
This methodology challenges our students to become protagonists of their own learning by developing projects that respond to real-life problems, helping students to develop the key skills of the 21st century and to achieve meaningful learning.

Each project is multidisciplinary; as an example: mathematics, art, writing, leadership and motivation to do good, were just some of the areas that we covered with the project "7 months 1 cause"
From 5th grade: Introduction to Digital Education
Our school has e-learning platforms in operation for its own digital materials.
At the Ibn Gabirol - Estrella Toledano School, we have implemented the digital project for our last cycle of elementary school students seven years ago. With it, it is intended to improve the teaching and learning of students.
Through the e-learning platform “Google Classroom”, a platform for activities and digital resources, we have at the disposal of students and teachers an unlimited number of digital educational resources.
Google Classroom is part of the G Suite for Education package, which includes Google Docs, Gmail, and Google Calendar. This tool multiplies the possibilities beyond the classroom.
Collaborative work, communication between teacher and student, classes that can be retrieved, documents and exercises always available, etc. Plus, unlimited cloud backup.
This platform is multi-device and once the materials are downloaded we have the possibility to work offline.
It offers the possibility to connect with your students from anywhere with a hybrid approach for face-to-face and virtual classes.
Communicate important notifications on the What's New page. Enable face-to-face connections with students and parents through “Google Meet”.
