Description of the project
Freie Schule Brigach was founded in 2006. About 30 children – aged 6 to 18 – attend the school. Our school broadens and enriches the educational variety in the county of Schwarzwald-Baar. The educational concept meets the requirements of curriculums at state schools. The concept of our school is not combined with any ideology or religious confession. The main focus of our educational efforts is the individual child with his or her strengths and skills. The pupils learn in a group of mixed ages. Children experience democracy, which offers freedom and limits, individuality and community. The teachers’ role is to give input and advice, to support children in their own way of learning. Children are taught to work independently and be self-responsible. Teachers are not an authority who knows everything, but someone who supports and accompanies children in their process of learning. Volunteer activities: – assistance during class – supporting pupils at excursion – initiate own projects.
