NEW SCHOOL !
Living School is a private, innovative preschool, primary, and elementary school, whose purpose is to foster, through the education and development of the staff, parents, and children, the emergence of responsible and fulfilled citizens into the world, who are contributors to humanity’s true evolution.
BE THE CHANGE
THAT YOU WISH TO SEE
IN THE WORLD. – GANDHI
Convinced that world change begins with one person, we have chosen well-being and life skills – “savoir-être” – as the base of our pedagogy.
A SCHOOL OF WELL-BEING
To have confidence in yourself, to know how to assert yourself, to have good relationships with others: these are skills that allow you to succeed in life. “Savoir-être” (life skills and well-being) is thus the heart of our pedagogy, and our teachers are specially trained to allow these skills to blossom and bring out true happiness in all the children.
AN ECO-CITIZEN SCHOOL
Living School’s curriculum offers an education in eco-citizenship. In addition, the children are encouraged to act now to change the world through projects they lead.
Each year, they choose and carry out their projects for the planet that respond to today’s issues.
THE SCHOOL OF
The parents are true partners with the school. They are welcome every morning in the classroom. We meet with them regularly and our savoir-être workshops are opportunities to develop a even more fulfilled way of educating their children.
CHILDREN WHO CHANGE
7 children saved from hunger, 21 pandas adopted, 3 bonobos sponsored, 722 trees replanted in Senegal, nights in a hotel for a homeless man of the neighborhood, a tree planted in the Buttes Chaumont park to support Chief Raoni…
JOY AND PLEASURE
Joy and pleasure are the most powerful driving forces behind learning. We offer inspiring pedagogical activities that engage children to want to learn, without constraints or pressure.
Instead of fixating on limitations and weaknesses, we orient ourselves resolutely on the children’s immense potential. Each child celebrates his/her successes each week in the success notebook.
CHILDREN WHO ARE HAPPY
Nathan: “I love going to school. I like doing savoir-être because it’s not done in every school. I like when we do the calendar in English in the morning. I also like doing the morning ritual. And I like going to the park!”
Thanks to immersion starting in preschool, and then an active pedagogical approach beginning in the primary levels, the children learn English with joy and ease.
