De School

LIFE! is a small, democratic school that provides both primary and secondary education. The school is for youngsters between the ages of 4 and 21 and adheres to the students’ independence. English and Dutch are both spoken at school. LIFE! is based on mankind’s curiosity, on our natural urge to discover and learn, to explore, our desire acquire skills and to gain knowledge. By nature, people love to learn, once something begins to stir inside, we get into action and get absorbed by whatever interests us. That’s why the students, in accordance with their mentor, get to create their own learning process at LIFE!.

LIFE! is a private school; a so-called B3 school. That means that LIFE! is free to shape education in the way LIFE! envisions it. LIFE! is a B3 school out of principle and thus, does not receive government subsidy. The inspection of education visits LIFE! regularly to see if the school meets the basic conditions. Fortunately, the inspection is very enthusiastic and LIFE! has received a positive, binding advice to provide primary and secondary education.
