NewSchool - It’s my way!

Our Focus

Prepare for Success in the 21th century

PROJECT-BASED

With the support of Mentors and Experts, the Talents are expected to actively and independently implement and develop their project ideas. This process promotes problem solving skills and critical thinking.

SOCIAL COMPETENCE

By working closely with our Mentors, the Principal, Experts, the Community and each other, the Talents begin to recognize and build upon their strengths. If a Talent struggles and encounters failure, we see it as valuable experience, which we encourage Talents to evaluate from.

A HANDS-ON APPROACH

We learn from each other. At NewSchool we try to give our Talents as much access to the “real-world” as possible. By getting out and visiting businesses, heading to the scenes of events and spending time outside, Talents gain important networking skills, which help them communicate and approach Experts, as well as possible future employees.

NewSchool is something different

Where Kids Really Create

Talents, Coaches, and Experts - together, we lay the groundwork for a fulfilling education and a promising future. Through a variety of self-driven projects, Talents learn how to take responsibility, how to organize, and how to take pride in their work. Our kids learn to trust themselves and each other, as they develop confidence through successes, and curate curiosity and problem-solving skills through challenges and failures. We believe that kids should look forward to going to school, and by giving them a sense of community and the opportunity to reach their creative potential, NewSchool’s Talents are genuinely excited to come through our doors every day.

  • Talents research and develop technical and time-management skills through self-directed, mentor-assisted projects in a variety of fields, including: coding, screen printing, digital animation, film and music production, fashion and design, model building, hydrodynamics, and literary critique

  • Talents are offered daily workshops on topics such as; sustainability and renewable energy, drama, project management, design thinking, graphic design, photography and film making, music performance and production, as well as are expected to attend classes covering the subjects preparing them for their MSA examinations.

  • Talents at NewSchool develop soft-skills through access to the “real world”. The Talents arrange their own Internships and approach Experts, who support them throughout their projects. By making phone calls, sending e-mails and visiting outside businesses physically, Talents learn to become expert networkers and gain one of the most important skill-sets for their futures.

  • Talents complete the MSA (Mittlerer Schulabschluss) Program, in the 9th and 10th grades. In preparation for these examinations the eldest Talents attend weekly MSA-based workshops, which specifically prepare them for these examinations. Also, do the Talents include these relevant topics into their projects and thereby introduce these topics to the younger Talents.
