ECOLE ACTIVE – PEDAGOGICAL APPROACHES
Learning to Grow… Growing to Learn
Ecole Active offers a stimulating environment that encourages individual building of knowledge. The school proposes learning approaches that make sense to each student. In this way they understand what they are studying, discover their own ways of learning, as well as the personal and social benefits of learning. The searching child becomes an active learner, helping his/her peers and getting support from them. Therefore, he/she really takes ownership of each new studied concept. He/she enriches his/her abilities to be responsible and independent, which are fundamental skills for his/her future life as a citizen.
WHICH CLASS FOR YOUR CHILD?
So many special moments at Ecole Active: the class council, the older students sponsoring and taking younger students under their wing, the meals taken together every day, the personal projects… all nourishing the ground for dialogue.
D. was very fortunate to be a student at Ecole Active. He grew up to become confident and well prepared for the Cycle. And as parents, we were reassured!
By choosing to send my children to Ecole Active, I wanted to give them the opportunity to work with a teaching staff that is sensitive to their personalities and their desire to learn. Teachers, who would allow them to think for themselves, to build their knowledge with confidence. I was not disappointed. Today they are responsible adults who give themselves the means to succeed in their lives.
Thank you for this year of rebuilding and valuing the human beings who inhabit this school ! N. will not forget it, and neither will we!
Categorised as a dyslexic, none of my son’s qualities were recognised in the public system. He attended the Ecole Active from the 4th to the 8th grade and was able to regain confidence and joie de vivre while making progress in his studies. Today, at the age of 20, he is going to take his Baccalaureate in philosophy in May. When he talks about his schooling, it is Ecole Active that has left him with the best memories, in particular the strong and supportive relationships he had with his teachers.
