חטיבת הביניים 

The Ibn Gabirol - Colegio Estrella Toledano School is a Middle Years Programme (MYP) applicant school  

We are applying for the Middle Years Program, with which we intend to expand the IB continuum program of the International Baccalaureate.

"The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Middle Years Program (MYP) emphasizes intellectual challenge. It encourages students aged 11 to 16 to make practical connections between their studies and the real world, preparing them for achieving success in their future training and their lives"

In our high school we create relevant learning opportunities  both inside and outside the classroom, that help our students to  develop the necessary knowledge, critical thinking skills and character.

We want them to be able to carry out their high school stage in a safe environment, where they find their own place, can develop as people within a group and feel strong and accompanied throughout the learning and teaching process.

Our mission

Our mission is  provide a  environment where everyone is valued. All of our teaching team in partnership with parents and families, are focused  to do what it takes for students to be successful.

Provide to  students  with excellent education and  the necessary tools to face the challenges of the future, develop  social awareness, civic responsibility and personal growth so that they are active and informed participants  of society in a globalized world.


"Is the age..."

"The ESO stage has different aspects. At this age, social integration occurs in the group of classmates, while the process of emancipation from the family begins."

The "ESO" stage (Middle school: 7th. to 10th. grades), has different aspects. At this age there is social integration in the group of classmates, while the process of emancipation from the family begins. The adolescent begins to have ideas, own values and personal attitudes.

It is essential that we be very close to our students in this process. We want them to be able to finish their high school studies in a safe environment, where they can find their own place, can develop as a person within a group and feel strong and accompanied throughout the learning and teaching process.

"Educate the young people according to their path"

"חנוך לנער על פי דרכו" Mishlei 22: 6 משלי

We encourage our students to understand that they are part of the history of their communities and of the Jewish people, that they are responsible and protagonists of it and that the future will be written by young people like them.

We invite you to explore the past of the Jewish quarters of Spain, we participate in the Acts in memory of the holocaust of the municipalities of Madrid and in the Senate, we develop projects such as Shorashim in which both students and their families inquire about their past and project Her future.

We participate in contests and activities that connect them to the land of Israel and their Jewish identity.

Objectives and methodology

During this stage we want to achieve a reflective student, flexible with the environment and the challenges of the 21st century, as well as committed to their own development and learning.

To motivate the student and promote their learning, we work in lectures, laboratory practices, participation in research work and their presentation.

Our educational project is aimed at consolidating verbal and written comprehension and expression, logical reasoning, creativity and physical aptitude in order to prepare our students for access to Baccalaureate.

Personalized education

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.


English and Hebrew are already integrated from primary school, so we place special emphasis on learning a third foreign language in the curriculum: French.

It should be noted that during this stage, students take the Cambridge University exams: Preliminary English Test (PET) and First Certificate in English (FCE).

We provide our students with the opportunity to participate in English language immersion trips in both the United Kingdom and the United States.
