Barcelona High School Philosophy | Why BHS | Barcelona High School


At BHS, unlike at traditional schools, students do schoolwork through a flexible digital lesson platform, rather than by using books like in the past.

BHS has an amazing leadership team and uses an innovative teaching method known as "flipped learning", which is the reverse of the conventional instruction model.

BHS students first work through the academic coursework by themselves where they learn to overcome the fear of failure, and through that process, develop independence and self-confidence.

Then teachers provide 1-on-1 instruction and tutoring face-to-face with each student so they fully understand all course material.

BHS also provides a fun and social classroom and activities and events for a well-rounded school experience. 

Moreover, with the American High School Diploma program at BHS, there are no end of the year obligatory universal exams like with IB and British curriculum diploma programs so students have a less stressful path to enter university.

Lastly, BHS places students into English speaking universities in Spain or universities in USA to attend, for free, on athletic scholarships.
