Austria Saalfelden ESC European Solidarity Corps Vogelsangschule Saalfelden is a school with alternative pedagogics, located in the centre of Saalfelden, in the county of Salzburg in Austria, in the middle of the Alps. The “Vogelsangschule” is an initiative of some engaged parents who created an alternative school in September 2006 to allow their children a self-determined learning considering their individual development. The pedagogic background relies on the experiences and studies of Maria Montessori, Maurcio and Rebeca Wild and Jean Piaget as well as new cerebral and neuro-biological studies. We want to offer the children the possibility to learn in their own rhythm in an age-mixed group from 6 to 15 years. Actually, we have 30 pupils subdivided into three groups (Primaria I: 6 – approx. 9 years and Primaria II: approx. 9 – approx. 12 years and Sekundaria: approx. 12 – 15 years.) There are four teachers with education and experience in reformative pedagogic.
