Hero School Centro Educativo Técnico Chixot


Everyone has the power to be a hero in their own community if they have the right tools.

The goal of the Hero School model is to provide an innovative space for educators to empower students to lead their community. Our students are heroes because of their demonstrated capacity to create solutions to local challenges and to be the architects of their own futures.

Centro Educativo Técnico Chixot is the first Hero School institution. This model can be adapted to anywhere in the world.
