Living in Valencia

The beautiful, historic city of Valencia is the third largest city in Spain with a population of around 800,000 in the central area and over 1.5 million in the urban area.

Valencia is packed with impressive architecture from the Gothic Cathedral, home to what is claimed to be the true Holy Grail, to the futuristic City of Arts and Sciences.  The city is rich in art with plenty of museums to explore and some impressive street art adorning walls in the old centre.

Valencia is a safe, green city with plenty of parks and play areas for children including the impressive 9km long Turia Gardens running through the city along the bed of the former River Turia whose course was altered to prevent constant flooding in the city.  

All of central Valencia is walkable and has a good network of cycle paths.  Public transport is reasonably priced and efficient.  Valencia is where the Spanish national dish of paella was originally created so it is a speciality in many restaurants alongside a wide variety of other seafood  dishes, delicious desserts and excellent Spanish wines.  Valencians are warm and friendly and love children.  Children are welcomed in restaurants and cafés around the city and some even have entertainment and play areas.

Curriculum:Montessori Primary Language:English
Age Range:1 to 12
DESCRIPTION

Valencia Montessori School uses pure Montessori Methodology as the platform to build from, but we offer a complete educational lifestyle that goes beyond it. We firmly believe in integrity, commitment, respect, beauty, balance, simplicity, education, curiosity, personal growth, power of words, intention and love as the guiding stars to our wholeness. Every day, I witness the positive impact in children, as organically they are guided to the discovery of their own, becoming aware about who they are, the stellar consequences of finding purpose in mundane things, and the pleasure of being treated as perfect beings in full development. These evidences are real, they’re here, and they’re life changing. We know this because they changed our own lives. VMS is a place for all of those who want to be here, who feel they found home and who have the pleasure, privilege and responsibility to grow with us.

We see the central values of this development in mutual respect and tolerance and in the willingness to assume responsibility.  It is important to us as a school community to listen to each other, to accept different opinions, to compromise and to be polite to one another. In order to achieve these values, we develop rules that we, as teachers, adhere to and that we want our students to adhere to. The DSV should be a school with which teachers and students identify and where they feel comfortable. As an encounter school, we understand diversity as a given and a special obligation. Each pupil should be optimally promoted according to his performance and interests and according to our possibilities and be led to the best degrees.
