EUROPEAN HIGH SCHOOL
Legal-Economic course

The course maintains all the qualities of a Linguistic High School and proposes paths studied with the world of work to offer a response consistent with the new requisites of professional preparation of the students with curricula in line with the standards set by the school systems of other European countries.
