Secondary 1

In the manner of Johann Pestalozzi's famous maxim: "Learn with your head, your heart and your hands", the school accompanies the students in their pre-adolescence in order to encourage their development.

In this specific period of pre-adolescence, Steiner-Waldorf pedagogy develops a global and specific approach because it considers that "each child is unique".

Internships in companies, foreign languages (English and German), trips, academic courses (history, geography, mathematics...), theater courses, artistic activities, manual workshops... It aims to sharpen intelligence, stimulate creativity, take up challenges, reinvent the world of tomorrow.

In order to foster self-confidence, sociability and initiative, large-scale performances are staged and performed before an audience. Students practice theater, music and participate in an orchestra. They also participate in arts and crafts activities. They regularly present presentations and personal work.

Ping-pong tables, basketball court, outings, end of year ball... The school is also a playful space conducive to exchange, sharing and well-being.

Thinking, studying, playing, researching, imagining, realizing, creating, dreaming... The school develops a "transversal" educational approach. It aims to develop intellectual, artistic, social and manual skills.
