Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

“Learning is about the development of the individual” – this is the overriding principle of LIPSCHULE Zurich. Findings from neurobiological research show that children and young people have very individual ways of acquiring skills. As an educational institution we therefore feel we have a responsibility to create an environment in which they can develop to their full potential. We do so by providing an excellent basis for the permanent accumulation of knowledge. This approach, based on a humanistic view of mankind combined with constructivist educational methodology, is one we adhere to at all teaching levels.

Teaching approach of the school

Independent learning is the way to go: since 1998 we have been offering children and young people a relaxed, motivational environment that enables them to develop their potential to the full. For the 3 to 9 age group we are committed to the Montessori method of education and the principle of multilingualism. At the middle and secondary levels, personal development is at the centre of everything we do. We use forms of teaching that encourage our pupils to actively process and retain knowledge and not just passively store it.
