Welcome to The World of PHÖNIX Private Schools!
“The children develop their personal skills, and especially their communication skills. They let others finish their speech, address their audience, and send “I”- messages; a change of perspective while complying with the rules of communication.”
Life-Long Learning – The New Norm
The progress of technology and social transformation demands and facilitates new ways of studying and communication for all pupils. People of all age groups must be able to improve their skills continuously so that they can find their way in the world. Formal and informal learning processes have to be adapted to the needs of pupils. We want to be a school that makes this happen!
Professions We Don’t Know About Yet
We are in the beginning of a new age, characterized by the developments in genetics, artificial intelligence, robotics, nano technology, augmented reality, 3D print, biotechnology and much more. The growth in those areas is changing our daily lives fast. In 2016, the World Economic Forum stated that 65% of all school children today will work in professions we don’t even know about yet.
Change Is A Chance
As an educational institution, it is very important to understand how the world is changing and how we can equip our pupils with the skills and knowledge they will need to succeed in that challenging environment. It is not enough to have a good memory. Children have to be able to use their minds to convert important information into action.
So, the big question is this: how do we prepare our children for professions we don’t even know about yet? Or in other words, how do we get them ready for an unknown future? Certainly, the school, teachers and all other pedagogues have to develop the personal and social skills of their pupils. Creating a positive environment with a playful approach to learning, instead of constant pressure to perform, is a fundamental cornerstone of our philosophy.
Studying is More Than Just Acquiring Knowledge
We assess self-directed study, emotional intelligence, mental resilience and intercultural competences as important components that will determine the successful development of our pupils. We actively support those qualities in order to help them to adapt more quickly to change, and therefore to be more successful in the global world of tomorrow.
Thanks to our new management, which has many years of international experience in the educational sector, we are well prepared for the future.
