This article presents the transformation process of San Juan, a ghetto school, into La Paz, a magnet school. This transformation has been made possible by implementing the communicative methodology of research (CMR) based on the participation of everyone involved in the research process, together with the administration and the researchers. The article explains how the change has been made as well as the political measures that have been developed. Finally, a reflection considering the political improvements arising from the experience is given.
