Among the strengths and aspects that stand out in the report is the speed and efficiency in the implementation of the contingency plan to deal with the health crisis caused by COVID-19; as well as the great effort undertaken by the organization from the start of the pandemic to adapt to online education and the digitalisation of the enrolment and educational processes. It has also been highlighted that the distance learning during the confinement has been the aspect which has been most valued by families.


Likewise, other aspects have been positively assessed such as the tools used for effective and continuous communication with parents (own APP) and among the teaching staff (TEAMS); the analysis of the quality management system carried out in the annual management review report which ensures the adequacy, effectiveness and alignment of the quality management system with the strategic plan of the organization; having 3 students from Arenas International and Arenas Atlántico Schools who were among the 10 highest achieving students of the university district of Las Palmas  one of whom obtained the highest overall  result with an outstanding 14 out of 14.


Congratulations and thanks to all those who make it possible!
