Our school is a private school, organized by the parents of our students. We are the biggest and oldest alternative private school of Austria. Our school was found in 1990 by a group of parents. At the moment we have about 80 students who are between 6 and 15 years old. The students can choose where they want to be, who they want to be, work and play with and for how long. Children from 6 to 12 are called the Primaria and Children from 12 to 15 are called the Sekundaria. Our school is situated in one part of the water castle in Pottenbrunn. It is situated directly in the center of the village, so the volunteer can walk to the next bus station, to the supermarket, the doctor, the coffeehouse,…
