This public school with a focus on art and training for tourism-related professions was founded in 2000 with the goal of creating a new model of public education. Their aim is to give the best basic, secondary and professional technical education possible, while at the same time offering catholic knowledge and moral to the students. It is their vision that their graduates become active and creative participants in the building and development of the Dominican society. Due to this vision the school uses art as an important instrument in their education. The school serves around 1400 students in an industrial-residential area with a lot of marginalization.
