My name is Daniel and I am a co-founder of the APEGO School Berlin.
I made my Fine-Arts diploma in 2012 and tried to make a living on that.
In 2015 I visited the Freie Schule Leipzig and was introduced to the ideas of alternative education. It felt like the school I have always dreamed of. I saw open minded, happy pupils who loved going to school and teachers who loved their jobs. After reading relevant books and visiting other schools, I left the world of Arts and focussed on creating a place with the absence of authority, violence, competition as well as the compulsory adoption of imagined standards of our todays consumer-based society.
In 2016 I joined Jana and Aida in the founding team. We are united by the dream of a new place where personal relation, community and happiness are the leading sources. I believe that the multicultural, trilingual School APEGO-Schule Berlin with its German-Latin American focus can make a change in education away from learning facts, towards application and trust in a child´s intrinsic motivation.
Become part of it and help us to create this leeway for a liberal development of a child’s personality.
