The compound itself defines an inside -the school- with the classrooms, library, administrative office and inner playground - and an outside - collective functions located on the edges of the system as activities that extend into the landscaping: a dining room, a multi-purpose room, and the access.

Las naves de las aulas son diseñadas con materiales sencillos, bloque en concreto en sus muros portantes, techos con estructura de madera y tablilla y ventanas en aluminio con rejas, donde lo más importante es la relación del aula con el paisaje atreves de los ventanales.
