Learning through doing. With the help of mentors and outside experts, Talents develop new skills through research and practice. Each learner is unique, so their education is personalized
Talents develop social competence by communicating with their mentors, school leadership, outside experts, and each other about their visions, project needs, deadlines, challenges, and successes
Talents have the opportunity to gain real-world experience as they work together with outside consultants and businesses to complete internships and produce self-driven projects
NewSchool ist was anderes
Talents, Coaches und Experts - gemeinsam machen wir uns auf den Weg in ein glückliches Leben. Durch unterschiedlichste Projekte aus dem unmittelbaren Leben lernen die Talents Verantwortung zu übernehmen, sich zu organisieren und neugierig immer wieder Neues zu wagen. Mit Freude, Lachen, Vertrauen und Zuversicht lernen sie sowohl mit Erfolg als auch mit dem Scheitern umzugehen. Denn all dies gehört zum Leben und somit zur Vision der NewSchool.
Talents research and develop technichal and time management skills through self-directed, mentor-assisted projects in variety of fields, including: coding, screen printing, digital animation, film and music production, fashion and design, model building, hydrodynamics, and literary critique
Daily Workshops are offered on topics such as Renewable Energy, Theater, Project Management, Design Thinking, DJing and Music Production, Graphic Design and more
By getting out into the real world, making phone calls, sending emails, and visiting businesses, Talents gain the soft skills that can only be developed through real-world experience
