School of Life



I came across this extraordinary school in Stege, south-eastern Denmark. Unlike any other regular school that is packed with lessons and monthly quizzes, The school of Life is completely different! Its curriculum focuses mainly on real life practices that are significantly impartial in nature. The school vision is to support young students with practical knowledge and improve their real-life skills, for the mission of preparing them for the adults world.

I have seen students knitting, carpeting, gardening, exploring nature, playing music and creating art. The school has academical subjects that are smoothly structured within the curriculum and school system. But in the manner to provide the students with what they actually need without enforcing too much information as well as to maintain stability and not interfere with the school vision.

The amount of these real life practices fairly outweigh the academic classes.
