School Info Chart - Kapriole

The Kapriole is a democratic school that received state approval 15 years ago. At the moment 150 children between the ages of 6 and 18 come here to learn whatever, whereever, however, whenever and with whomever they want - all of the time. This absolute freedom and self-directed learning is the basis on which all other rules develop at the Kapriole. These rules are discussed and negotiated at the weekly school-meetings, in which each person has one vote - regardless of age and experience.
