Freie Schule Brigach was founded in 2006. Now, about 30 children - age 6 to 16 - attend the school. The educational concept meets the requirements of curriculums at state schools. The concept of the 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. 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. Volunteer' activities: assitance during class, supporting pupils and students at excursions and outings, initiating own workshops and projects. (sport, culture, craft, etc.) participating in the cevelopment of a school concept.
