Information about the town.

Lucena is a perfect town for living (around 45,000 inhabitants), it’s located in the center of Andalusia. Important and beautiful cities such as Cordoba, Seville, Granada or Malaga (these three all with airports) are less than 1:30 minutes from here. Lucena is the most important town in the area, called Subbetica, there are plenty of museums, restaurants, trendy shops, shopping centers, indoor swimming pool, etc.

You can go everywhere walking. The school is very popular here, and the buildings have been recently remodelled (with new facilities, library, gym etc) , children are well-behaved and polite, and with no disruptive problems. And we have a good working atmosphere. We also want to have an international approach and last year we received some teachers from a US High School from Kokomo (Indiana) in order to start a students exchange between our two schools. We had everything arranged but sadly we couldn’t make it because of COVID but our plans are to do it when it is possible. (You are free to contact the American teacher in charge of international studies if you have any questions. His name is John Pinson and his e-mail is jpinson@kokomo.k12.in.us)

In Lucena, there are also some English speaking people (from UK and US mainly) who work in private academies living here, (and the other language assistants who work in the other local high schools) so when you’ll meet them you will feel like home.
