Sumario: This article is an excerpt from a research project on developing an ethics, esthetics and citizenship management project in high schools from Western Regional Office 3, during the 2013 schoolyear. Participating high schools include Julio Acosta García Institute, Palmares Bilingual High School and Naranjo High School, all public high schools. The aforementioned institutions are day schools covering a Cycle III Diversified curriculum. The study is descriptive and based on combined or multimodal methodological techniques involving both qualitative and quantitative methodologies. The author interviewed students from the Executive Student Body Committee and school administrators as well as teachers who were asked to participate in a survey. The research concludes that more strategies must be put in place to fully develop an Ethics, Esthetics and Citizenship Program. Based on the criteria of the faculty, administrators and students, project management is a weakness and requires better planning, leadership, organization and assessment of activities to ensure a successful output.
