Our school was founded on the 29th of August, 2011. We started with 10 students; we now have 14 students between the ages of 6 to 17. We are open on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8.00 am till 6.00 pm. The meaning of the school’s name is: 5 plus 5 equals 11. This name has several explanations. One of them is: together we can be more than just the sum of the individuals. Another is: be creative! Show us how things can work outside the normal way of thinking!
We were lucky to find a beautiful old monastery with a big garden. The building is still partly inhabited by three sisters with whom we have a very warm relationship. There’s a park adjacent to the school, and a forest nearby.
We’ve chosen to work sociocratically, which means that decisions are made only with consent of all members. The main organ of the school is called ‘Schoolkring’, literally ‘School circle’, where all decisions concerning the school are made.
We are always looking for people who want to help us make our school even more successful. We are open again to new students. Age limit is 4-18.
