We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves.


- Galileo Galilei

Our Approach


Our school enables all children to develop their full potential - by allowing them to learn independently, at their own speed, and according to their own individual interests.


Our teaching is based on the Montessori method, which postulates that children have an innate desire to learn and grow and that they follow their own intrinsic plan, learning what is right for them at a time which is appropriate.


Education is a process that starts at birth and continues throughout life. It is much more than the mere acquisition of knowledge and is closely tied to personality development. To accept responsibility for one's own life, to take decisions independently, to communicate with others in a constructive and authentic manner, to set and pursue personal goals, and to lead a happy and fulfilled life are some of the core values of learning at the FAS.
