Philosophy

The main focus points of our school

Predominantly project based learning (PBL), holistic view and support of each student.

Individual learning, authentic assessment.

Preserving the child’s natural curiosity, making learning fun.

Aspiring at developing environmental and global awareness.

Our Aim

We aim at equipping our students with basic competences needed later in life. Nowadays pure knowledge acquisition is no longer primarily important, as facts are only a mouse click away. Therefore the ability to evaluate what information is relevant, reliable and leads to the desired result, is of much higher importance. Not only is it our goal to provide our students with internationally recognized degrees, but to also equip them with the following skills:

  • the courage to explore new ways
  • healthy risk taking
  • the ability to reflect your own actions and those of others
  • being able to work in a team
  • seeing failure as a valuable learning experience
  • innovative and creative problem solving
  • to appreciate yourself, our peers and the environment

Our school model

Our school model is future oriented: therefore we include English, ICT and Problem Solving into our curriculum.

  • we teach in English and German, starting in First Grade
  • ICT is integrated into the learning routine
  • our lessons are primarily based on real life issues
  • we prefer assessing the individual learning progress rather than using marks
  • we allow our students to learn how they learn best
  • we appreciate our students’ individuality and support them
  • we equip our students with skills most suitable for their future
  • our students are permitted study time as needed, thus not necessarily following the usual 45 minute class routine
  • Classes start at 10 am, with additional English classes starting at 8:45 am

No child should be overlooked. We are aware, that each child is unique and deserves to be supported individually.

  • we are offering small classes (12-14 students)
  • as a all-day school, we have enough time to explore subjects creatively, innovatively and in-depth
  • each student is assigned a personal mentor for assistance
  • parallel to real life experiences we are using modern technology
  • assessment is comprehensive and individual

„Create Schools shows that there is a way to educate so that the love for learning is ignited in each and every child.”
