Frieder Münz, principal of Freie Schule Anne-Sophie, and Peter Fratton, consultant and interim principal of the primary level of Freie Schule Anne-Sophie, will present the pedagogic concept and give further information on the admission procedure.

Students currently attending other schools and interested in Freie Schule Anne-Sophie are also invited to take part in the information evening.

Please register for the event at the school’s office under 0049-7940 931130.

The admission procedure will be held from January 2009 on. For the new school year, preschool-age children of five years and older as well as students of the primary and secondary level (up to grade 9) are admitted. Children of the preschool/entrance level (five years old) may be admitted every six months (next date: February 2009).

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 (student) 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 (teachers) 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. Here education means to design the environment in such a way that students may learn, think and act in a target-oriented and relaxed manner, however, in their own way. With its architecture, the new campus that Freie Schule Anne-Sophie moved to in September 2008 is to meet this demand.
