The Democratic School like to invite you to come take a look at their school, De Vrije Ruimte for students from 4 to 18 years. In the democratic education pupils themselves have influence on their class schedule and learning path. Along with the teachers they determine the field of study that suits them best. In addition to the standard subjects, you can also specify if you like Russian, Chinese, guitar lessons, first aid or judo.
Learning as a daily practice also means eating together, working out conflicts, games and sports. The new school building has a living room, courtyard and free space for the students to play. You can express your creativity in the restaurant, workshop and technology locally. There are also lessons given outside of school. Think of surfing lessons on the beach. The world is one large school.
De Vrije Ruimte currently has 37 pupils. Thanks to the new property we can extend this up to 100 school pupils aged 4 to18 years.
If you are interested, come take a look during the open afternoon on Wednesday from 1.00-4.00 PM.
If you would like to lunch with us come an hour earlier. The students from 12:00-1:00 PM serve a delicious lunch for a small fee in their restaurant the ‘Crazy Bultler’. Meet the pupils and soak up the atmosphere!
