The compromise of developing in the students the values, knowledge, basic skills, habits and attitudes that allow them their full development.
As established by Law 68, Organic Law of the Department of Education of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico the School proclaims its compromise of providing equal educative opportunities of the highest quality to all students.
CROEM stimulates the major participation of all members of the educative process in the decisions of the school.

The principle of teaching and search for new alternatives in the process of teaching-learning is believed. As expressed textually: the excellence as fundamental aspiration of the Educative System and that the Student is the center of the system. CROEM students receive an education that together with the attention of other social institutions, contributes in the development of an educated human being, capable of understanding the society in which he lives in, incorporating to the process of social change, and that recognizes the positive values that distinguishes the population. To achieve these intentions, C.R.O.E.M. offers a different and ample curriculum with emphasis in the individualization of teaching, the independent study, tutoring, investigation, the co-curricular activities, the assessment from university professors, the desired study habits, and the healthy social coexistence, this last one achieved by the residential life.

It has a panoramic view of 360 degrees where the municipalities of Cabo Rojo, Hormigueros, San Germán and Lajas can be appreciated, as well as the Caribbean Sea.
