School must keep up with an ever-changing society.
Our “school of success” has taken up a challenge: helping everybody master fundamental skills to live in society.

That ambitious project is totally opposed to a kind of « marked down » access to equal treatment and is centred on three main themes:

  • Learning continuity
    Thanks to a cooperation system and the breakdown of pupils by stages, we take the children’s evolution into account.We can build on the rock while preparing the future.
  • Differentiated learning
    Since children aren’t changing at the same pace, we are working out personal learning, which means activities adjusted to each child according to his/her own skill learning rhythm.
  • Formative evolution
    It aims at assessing and improving a pupil’s progress. The teacher knows that pupil has the right to make mistakes and assessment enables him/her to adjust his/her pedagogy and strategy.
But school must also prepare all the pupils to being responsible citizens who could contribute to the development of a democratic, united and pluralistic society.

That point of view and those child-centred pedagogical practices enable us to implement real « success strategies ».
