We are an affiliated lay school, with a trajectory of more than 50 years. We have an early-childhood and primary program, which allows for personalized attention and affectionate coexistence between older and younger students in a healthy and welcoming environment. We are one of the 3 early-childhood and primary programs of the Virolai School, and we work together enthusiastically in a joint program for growth and improvement, and where we have continuity with secondary school and batxillerat. Students, family, and educators work together to make up a cohesive educational community. To achive our common objectives, we share an education project that evolves and improves thanks to the collaboration and involvement of everyone.


We are located in the Gràcia district, across from the main entrance to Parc Güell. Founded in 1964 by Maria Clara Forteza, the Reina Elisenda School has continued to evolve and grow throughout the years, adapting to new social and educational realities and needs. In order to give continuity to the project in its surroundings, in 2016 the Reina Elisenda School became a part of the Virolai School, and became the current Reina Elisenda Virolai.
