Our School Life

Self-Organized, Creative, Digital and Project-Based

Klax's educational institutions pursue the approach of imparting competences that enable young people to learn in a self-organised and targeted manner and to master challenges. Our teachers see themselves as learning guides who help children and young people find their own way, rather than dampening their spirit of research and drive through frontal teaching and memorization.

In all class levels, we orient ourselves to the requirements of the Berlin framework curriculum and make sure that students prepare conscientiously for the nationwide final examinations. All graduations at Klax School are recognised by the Berlin Senate Administration for Education, Youth and Family and entitle graduates to take the next higher qualification nationwide.

A Day at Klax School

All class levels are linked by a comparable daily routine. We give the students a lot of time to consolidate the social class structure and to grow together as a community. A school day with us is always framed by a morning and a final round in which we discuss what is important to the group members. The classes eat three meals a day together with the learning guides.    

Classes at the Klax School are characterised by the alternation of instruction phases and phases of self-organised learning. The first phase usually takes place in the morning. New knowledge is imparted to the pupils and new tasks are formulated together. In the second phase they work self-organised at learning counters and work on the previously discussed tasks. The learning guides support them in this.

A school day with us is divided into three phases: In the morning there is time to gather new information and to give learning assignments. The middle of the day is practice time and in the afternoon lays the opportunity for active creativity.
