Colegio Atalaya
Since the fairly recent establishment of the private Atalaya College in the area, senior pupils no longer need 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 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 Spanish and English learning while incorporating a modern methodology to allow students to develop to their full potential within a healthy, safe, and happy environment.
