FOUNDATION OF THE CENTER
The origin of our High School goes back to 1973 with the installation of the first VET workshops in the Marianao Palace, which the following year were expanded to Can Massalleras. That is until the 1980-81 school year, when the equipment was moved to the newly built Camps Blancs IFP. During the next school year (1982-83), the electrical and delineation specialties were relocated again to Marianao Castle, as a section of the Camps Blancs IFP. It was then, during the 1983-84 academic year, that the new MarianaoHigh School was officially created. The following year, the specialties of Hairdressing and Aesthetics were added, and later on, so was the baccalaureate.
The first professors that were in our High School were the following:
Drawing: Andreu Mesas and Lluís García. Organization and manufacturing project: Leopoldo Cerdà. Delineation practices: Enric Doñate. Electricity practices: Javier Biel, Paco Orfila, Joan Aromíi and Joan Corominas. Social-Humanistic: Mari Creu Pascual. Mathematics: Jhoan Watemberg Lubinsky. English: Marisa López.
THE CURRENT BUILDING
In 1987-1988 MarianaoIFP left the Castle and moved to the current building, which had just been built. Then, the specialties of hairdressing and aesthetics disappeared. Later, in the 1995-1996 academic year, ESO was introduced. In 1998 the old Vocational Training disappeared and the new Vocational training coursesbegan. Electricity also disappeared, delineation was transformed into Mechanical Project Development (mechanical manufacturing professional group) and the Vocational training courses of Commerce and Marketing and Computer Science were implemented.
