Since the fairly recent establishment of the private Atalaya College in the area it is no longer necessary for senior pupils to journey to a neighbouring town to continue their learning. Previously children over the age of 13 would travel to San Pedro Alcántara, Marbella or further afield to access classes for their higher education.
Colegio Atalaya or Atalaya College is a bilingual educational facility that offers infant, primary, secondary and senior classes to young people in and around the Benahavís area. The school combines the best aspects of both Spanish and English learning whilst incorporating a modern methodology to allow students to develop to their full potential within a healthy, safe and happy environment.
