Freie Schule Anne-Sophie opens its doors for interested teachers: Information evening and tour of the campus on 18 November 2008

Künzelsau. In September 2008, Freie Schule Anne-Sophie moved to the new premises at the school campus in Künzelsau-Taläcker. For the coming school year 2009/2010 the private school intends to employ additional teachers from all types of schools in the course of the school’s further expansion.

For both the primary and the secondary school level the school is searching for further learning coaches from elementary school, Hauptschule (five-year secondary schools preparing students for vocational qualifications), Realschule (six-year secondary schools preparing students for apprenticeships) and Gymnasium (grammar schools preparing students for university) who have an interest in working at a private school that focuses on autonomous learning in houses for different age groups.

Freie Schule Anne-Sophie: The educational concept

“Every child stepping on this new path of learning is to leave Freie Schule Anne-Sophie as a winner!”, Bettina Würth describes her motivation to found the school.

Freie Schule Anne-Sophie is a private school with all-day care for all school careers - from preschool to high-school diploma. The school has its own educational concept. It offers a learning environment designed for individual, autonomous and target-oriented learning.

Every learning partner is to be given the opportunity to go his/her own way at his/her own pace, thus reaching his/her own goals. Learning coaches promote and demand performance of the students. In order to achieve this individuality as regards learning, the school’s architecture and structure has been formed in such a way that there are manifold inspirations that trigger off independent learning.

“Autonomous learning in an especially designed environment and with a respectful way of dealing with each other”, is an essential principle in the concept of Freie Schule Anne-Sophie. Education means designing the environment in an appropriate way. The architecture of the new buildings of Freie Schule Anne-Sophie is supposed to meet this demand and turn the school into a “place to live and learn in a relaxed way”.

Freie Schule Anne-Sophie was founded at the beginning of the school year 2006/2007. Until the move to the new buildings, the building of the former agricultural school in Zollstockweg in Künzelsau housed Freie Schule Anne-Sophie.
