High School and Beyond, Spanish Style (An Interview)

Thanks to Darlene Anne for organizing this intriguing blog hop around the theme of Creating a Global Classroom!

As I live in Spain this is a great opportunity for me to share a little about the educational system here. I've interviewed a health teacher at a vocational school in Alicante to bring you insights into the path of a typical Spanish student. Loida Moya Smith is our interview subject--she's a nurse who teaches at the Secondary Education Institute of Leonardo da Vinci in Alicante. She offers one of many perspectives on education in Spain. Enjoy!

We call the last four years of schooling before university “high school.” I gather it’s somewhat different in Spain?
