For their exceptional work in favor of the development of education, teachers have received national and departmental awards, honorable badges for meritorious service in favor of local district, province and activities for the good of children (e.g. The Teacher of the Year, among others). The teachers have constantly been improving their knowledge taking place in: trainings, improving and qualifying courses, workshops, seminaries, postgraduate studies, practices abroad, scientific symposiums and conferences, thematic clubs, for instance "The Learning Schools' Club", The Directors' Club.
