Colegio Estilo is a reference center for free education. Its founder was the pedagogue Josefina Aldecoa who wanted to create, during the Franco dictatorship, an educational center that would gather the spirit of the Institución Libre de Enseñanza. This private secular center is located on Calle Serrano and is frequented by the children of Madrid’s intellectual elite. His method is very different from traditional teaching. Students make their own books and give great importance to the humanities; Literature, letters, and art are fundamental; they teach subjects such as opera history. Actors such as Juana Acosta, Ernesto Alterio, and Najwa Nimri have sent their children to this school, including two simple chalets in Colonia del Viso. They teach the Primary stage, and the students who pass through here usually go in high school to alternative centers such as the Study School or the European High School.
There is no perfect or ideal school; no matter how many lists are made, the ideal center is one with which the parents are satisfied and where the children are happy. We must analyze various aspects and, depending on what we need and value, looking for the center that best suits our expectations.
