The instruments used for data collection were one sheet of initial contact and focus groups. In the content analysis emphasized to the statements regarding the accelerated classes, which are derived four categories related to the purpose of the study. The results showed an increase in self-esteem and better school performance of students, who have also reflected on their families. We believe that the performance and the small number of teachers, the establishment of the link between teacher and student and the change in curriculum and methodological organization contributed to the success of the project.
