“Education for Life” is the mission of this international school, offering preschool – 12th grade. The intention is to connect and harmonize the physical, virtual, and social world of education to offer an enhanced environment for “New Learning.” It consists of three main areas: “marketplace,” “assembly space,” and “knowledge space.” The marketplace facilitates an interactive common area and includes an open learning area with an enclosed room for focused teamwork. The assembly space is an open library and a green atrium where students mingle during free time. Moreover, the forum is an auditorium and acts as a vertical connection between the floors. The knowledge space has a maximum of six classrooms, each with flexible furnishing and a retreat space that provides many settings for individual teaching, collaboration or recreation. The main hallway, “the connection,” offers open communication with various layouts. Along the hallway are commonly used “we-places,” areas for special education, including a design and tech lab with workstations, a preparation room, and robotics. The “life skills & entrepreneurship center” is a multi-use area for group teaching, lectures, and individual study. Each cluster has a particular color code in its interior, symbolizing affiliation and reflecting the diversity of the students.
