Galemo Montessori School (AUT-13)

Type: Education: Primary school - Country: Austria

Brief description and main aims

Galemo Montessori School, a small private school, initiated and run by a parents association, aims to accompany kids on their path of becoming independent and to have a self-secure personality. Students should be critical, responsible humans in their community and show their social copetences, intellectual skills and creativity. 

Main Activities

The school accommodates around 70 pupils in three different levels: “Primaria” 1, “Primaria” 2 and “Sekundaria”. In each level we have children of three different age-groups studying side by side. All levels have two classrooms, where the kids can learn according to special pedagogical principles found by Maria Montessori.

Our teacher team consists of eight full time teachers and a few additional ones that offer some special classes. Meet the team.

School is from Monday to Friday and always starts at 8am. While the younger kids return home between 12 and 1 o´clock, “Sekundaria” has also classes in the afternoon until 4 pm. from Tuesday to Thursday. On these days they prepare their own lunch.
