Sudbury Schools

The following is a list of schools that operate in a similar manner to the Hudson Valley Sudbury School.

Alpine Valley School

At Alpine Valley School, we respect children for who they are. Students are in charge of their own education in a healthy, supportive environment, learning what they need in the ways that work best for them. An AVS education is flexible and spontaneous, allowing children to retain their natural curiosity, self-esteem, and enthusiasm.

De Kampanje

De Kampanje is een school voor jonge mensen van 4 tot 19 jaar. Het is een kleine, gezellige particuliere school met veel aandacht voor het individu. Jonge mensen zijn van nature nieuwsgierig, leergierig en gemotiveerd. Op veel scholen zie je die eigenschappen nauwelijks terug. Door de manier van werken wordt het eigen initiatief, de motivatie om te leren, en het doorzettingsvermogen van jongeren vaak ondermijnd. Onze ervaring is dat dit niet ligt niet aan de jongeren zelf, maar aan de manier waarop onderwijs wordt vormgegeven.

Eugene Sudbury School

Sudbury model schools depend on self-paced, self-initiated deep learning. It is the kind of learning that doesn’t depend on bells or limits, but stretches across the day or even the academic year, and ultimately, across students’ lifetimes. There need not be an arbitrary end to the challenge, but instead students can see how one challenge leads to the next. Thus the natural inquiry associated with Sudbury schools situates problems in context, in history, and in geography.

Neue Schule Hamburg

Das Wichtigste: Es geht um eine andere Einstellung zu den Schülern. Lehrer müssen davon ausgehen, dass gewöhnliche SchülerInnen außergewöhnliche Fähigkeiten haben.   Wir werden oft gefragt, ob die Schüler an unserer Schule auch etwas lernen, ob die nicht nur den ganzen Tag spielen und nichts tun, ob da nur Chaos herrscht? Kinder brauchen doch klare Regeln und Strukturen, um zu lernen. Nun, der Mensch lernt immer. Unser Gehirn kann gar nicht anders.
