Guiding Principles

  1. Caring Space
    We will create a physical, mental, and emotional safe space for learners to thrive. We will create a caring physical environment where equality and freedom are key values and where people are allowed to be vulnerable.
  2. Sense of Community
    The aim of this project is to foster the sense of community to create a culture of trust, where learners feel safe to express themselves freely and try things out, fail, try again, and to continue to experiment and learn.
  3. Collaboration at the Center
    Through working with others, we develop higher-level thinking skills, we learn faster, and we develop empathy and social skills. Therefore, we will create different spaces for learners to influence each other, meet up, create friendships, and join forces. Our school supports and embraces as many options of interaction and collaboration as possible: working alone, together, in small or bigger groups, and in different constellations. We utilize design strategies that stimulate socializing, collaboration, and cooperation.
  4. Connect to the Outdoors
    Nature stimulates imagination and provides a space that fosters and facilitates various kinds of activities. In designing our school, we focus on creating a strong connection between indoors and outdoors, making it easy and convenient to utilize the outdoor environment for various learning environments.
