Impressions from a school visit
Founder of ‘’Paradise’’
Caroline, director of the international admissions, came to school as a parent. Her son has been studying here for several years, she is happy. When it was the daughter’s turn, the opportunity to work appeared. “You can only give primary and secondary education to a child once,” she says. “It was important for me to make the best choice possible.”
I’m talking to the director. He personally interviews each child, from 7 years old, without parents, to understand whether the child wants to be in school. If he feels that this is the decision of the parents, but not the child, he will not accept him at school. "If at least one child feels miserable at my school, then I failed."
