Ecole Harmonie : the pleasure of learning

In Geneva, the Ecole Harmonie needs your help to open its first class.
The mission of the Ecole Harmonie is to support all students in their overall development. Thanks to an innovative and attractive pedagogy, it will offer them a rewarding and motivating environment that will allow them to learn with pleasure while being actors of their learning. At Ecole Harmonie, students will find, or rediscover, the pleasure of learning and will turn their differences into strengths in today’s and tomorrow’s world.

Pleasure to learn

The first foundation is based on the pleasure of learning. A motivated student who has confidence in himself and in his learning will be a student who will have all the keys necessary to build his future. In a constantly changing world, we want our students to be actors in their learning, to think for themselves and for themselves.

Learn differently

Ecole Harmonie differs from traditional learning methods and wants to be innovative by offering a hybridization of alternative pedagogies. We build on the strengths of active pedagogies, project pedagogies, design thinking and «forest school», so that each student develops their maximum potential. Our students benefit from a cognition workshop in which they exploit their strengths and weaknesses, develop learning strategies and approaches that make sense to them. They deploy their own ways of learning and give a common thread to their learning.

Differences : a strength Each individual is different thanks to the variability of the skills of each other as well as a great social wealth. We believe that all children can learn and progress in their learning. Thus, we attach great importance to the rigorous follow-up of all our students, whatever their needs. We offer all the necessary tools by listening to everyone’s differences.

Openness to languages

With a priority given to learning French, Ecole Harmonie also teaches English and German for openness to the world.
