 Slobodná škola

Slobodná škola or The Free Democratic School is an elementary school with nearly 800 pupils in grades 1-9, of which over 700 pupils are so-called "homeschoolers". Without constant management and supply of stimuli, we provide a space for a proven model of free/self-directed learning and free play, confirmed by the century-long experience of Summerhill School in England, as well as the latest findings in pedagogy, psychology and neurology. We guide children through the world in freedom, inclusion, while maintaining intrinsic motivation and abundant time outdoors. In addition to the above, our goal is to show the public that education can be done differently - more free and joyfully, and also that democracy is a value that we must not only cherish and protect, but fight for on a daily basis.
