General School Mission

"The environment and materials are such that enable the teacher to teach each child individually in each subject guiding him according to his interests, aptitudes and needs. Each child works at his own pace for our teachers respect the inner rythms of each child's soul. This and the fact that we have ungraded classes (2 - 6 yrs., 6 - 9 yrs., 9 - 13 yrs.), does away with children competing with each other, and presents endless opportunities for mutual help. Teachers and children plan their own use of time, and the environment is such that no child feels inferior." (SOURCE:
