Altas capacidades intelectuales
Nuestros alumnos que tienen necesidades derivadas de alta capacidad intelectual trabajan con programas individualizados de Ampliación Curricular, Flexibilización Educativa , Programas de Enriquecimiento Educativo Extracurricular en colaboración con la Consejería de Educación de la CAM, realizan proyectos de profundización de temas de su interés que posteriormente exponen y comparten con sus compañeros o participan en el programa SICO que se lleva a cabo en el colegio. Se les anima a que participen en olimpiadas académicas u otros eventos donde los alumnos comparten sus talentos con sus compañeros.
Estas medidas contribuyen a su estimulación intelectual, mantienen la motivación y la curiosidad por el aprendizaje. Por otro lado, no olvidamos los aspectos socioemocionales buscando un desarrollo armónico y bienestar del alumno.

Preparation of methodological and /or curricular programs for the recovery of basic skills i.e. dyslexia, ADT, ADTH, SLD, NVLT, etc…are created, which provide continuous counselling and emotional support while working on development programmes for social-skills, self- esteem and intellectual high-capacity students.
Students with needs derived from intellectual high-capacity work on Curricular Extension, Learning Flexibility, and Enrichment programmes in collaboration with the Ministry of Education (CAM), programmes that allow a deeper study of topics of personal interest which later can be presented and shared with peers. We also encourage these students to take part in the SICO program, academic Olympics and other activities here at school, measures that contribute to intellectual stimulation while maintaining motivation and curiosity for learning.
Throughout the school year Logos International offers the possibility of intensive programmes presented by external professional teams, in which parents can follow the program “+ family” which debates on educational topics that favour personal well-being.
Parallel to this, Logos International has introduced the program “Protegiendote” with the aim of dealing with certain aspects connected to emotional control, social interaction skills, problem-solving and decision taking as well as cognitive development of positive attitudes towards health.
RULER, a method for emotional education, also offers workshops for families. For this, throughout the academic year, the guidance department offers formative initiatives and workshops for parents, through which we aim to show the work the students’ carry out, as well as creating a space to share experiences.
PROFESSIONAL ADVICE AND COUNSEL
In the Programme for Professional Counselling, different activities are prepared by our team aimed at developing a better knowledge of oneself and one’s likes, offering information to students in different professional areas while promoting a conscientious decision.
From 3rd year Secondary to 2nd year Baccalaureate students carry out tests to detect their interests and preferences for future professional choices. They will also attend Student Advice Workshops in Las Rozas and public and private universities, where informative conferences are organized presenting possible study options, university studies and professional options. These activities are imparted by university professors and professionals from diverse sectors who, at the same time, are linked to the academic world.
