The members of the Ecole Active team are committed to ensuring quality teaching, extracurricular activities, administration and maintenance of the school. They make Ecole Active a friendly place, invested in its pedagogy and connected to its environment.

The directorate of the school

The school is managed through co-leadership. The co-principals are the guarantors of the pedagogical framework and ethical values of the school. They promote the development of the school and are in charge of the administrative and financial management, in collaboration with the office manager.

The teaching staff

The team is made up of generalist and specialist teachers, teaching assistants and trainees. The teaching team meets every week to develop the learning objectives, follow up on each student throughout his/her schooling and ensure the realization of the pedagogical projects in progress. Outside contributors (psychologists, trainers, etc.) are regularly called upon to enrich the reflections and projects in progress.
The team makes collective decisions on pedagogical matters. This collegial approach guarantees the pedagogical and ethical coherence of the teaching at Ecole Active. The teachers are university graduates in their specific fields of teaching.

A team in training

The teaching staff is constantly looking for new teaching tools that are in line with their commitment to the Ecole Active pedagogical project. To this end, each year the team participates in continuing education programs within the framework of national and international training organizations. In addition, several members of the team are active in structures promoting the development and research in active pedagogy.
