Open Door School Strategy

The school becomes a community center for formal and non-formal extracurricular activities: professional development, sports, recreation, cultural presentations, classes, and more activities. Many community members have benefited from what we offer: the students, parents, youth of the community, and residents of surrounding communities. It is also the center of community development where projects and initiatives of social groups unite, which allows them to participate in local and municipal events.
