description of organisation

Freie Schule Brigach was founded in 2006. Now, about 30 children - age 6 to 13 - 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. We pay special attention to build up skills being requested in the curriculum.
The concept of our school is not combined to any ideology or religious confession.

In our educational center is the individual child with his or her strenghts and skills. It is characteristic for our school to teach in open classes and the groups are mixed of age. Educational material support children to learn individually and within their own pace. Children experience democracy, which offers freedom and limits, individuality and community.
The teachers role is to give input and advices, to support children on their own way of learning.
The heart of our concept is the children's self-responsibility. Children are taught to work independently. Teachers are not an authority who knows everything, but someone who supports and accompanys children in their process of learning.
