Elementary School

2nd degree

Adolescence is a critical period of human development. For children aged 12 to 18, Maria Montessori intended a special environment - a model school of experience with the basics of social life, where work is combined with academic study. She called this environment the Center for Study and Work.

Teenagers go through very challenging and sensitive times during these years. At the end of this developmental period, they are in a special life stage, on the threshold of adulthood, therefore the environment should reflect all aspects of adult life and provide opportunities not only to realize academic interests, but also to participate in real practical work of adults in a social environment as close as possible to real society . Through experiences with everyday life and its responsibilities, teenagers practice what it takes to become contributing members of the wider society.

Part of this experience is an introduction to the economy and an understanding of its importance for everyday life. Another important aspect of the adolescent environment is that adolescents should be in close contact with nature, both for the mental and physical relaxation of rapidly developing young bodies, and also to instill an appreciation and understanding of responsibility for the planet on which we live and of which we are a part .

School for teenagers is intended for young people between the ages of 12 and 18. Sometimes young people are divided into two groups from 12 to 15 and from 15 to 18, and sometimes all six years meet in one environment, depending on the size of the school.

Education in our school ends in the 9th grade for now.
