The creation of this school involved an innovative character, pioneer on different aspects. The school network being plural, its pedagogic project is based on active pedagogies, focusing a social mix, connection hub between primary, secondary schools and parents.


Pedagogic project and space are deeply interrelated; the physical environment does not determine the living experiences but can facilitate and encourage interactions, personal development, or personal work.

 

A correctly designed learning environment encourages the learning practices in a school where children are the main actors. Working in groups, presentations, debate, meetings, thematic spaces, workshops, exhibition, personal concentration, corporal expression, … Every activity and pedagogical needs foreseen are related to the definition of spaces and of their articulations.
