Wolno Mi School is a small democratic school in Gliwice. The school educates 42 children aged 7 to 14. The children study in mixed age groups. At our school, we leave children free to decide on their own educational path. At the same time, we try to ensure that what we offer in the field of ecudation, meets the needs to today’s children. An important element of our approach are outdoor activities, we spend a lot of time outside the builiding. We look for and support the development of children’s talents and strengths, and we also try to enable adults at school to use their stongest assets. Good relationships are the key to building an environment conducive to learning.
