"School on the Mountains" - namely the name of the private school Landschulheim am Solling - is located in Lower Saxony. The Zolling mountain chain, which gave the name to the institution, is the second highest in the country (after Harz): it is part of a huge nature reserve that provides children with training not only in classrooms and classrooms, but also far beyond them. You can reach the beautiful Lake Chiemsee in just 5 minutes, the nearest town is Kiming - 10 minutes drive, Munich Airport takes about an hour and a half, and Salzburg Airport - 45 minutes.
Landschulheim am Solling was founded in 1909 thanks to the union of four professional, progressive educators, wishing to create a training center with a humanistic approach, to create a real home for children from different parts of the country and the world. The building, which now houses the institution, was originally a Roman manor, rebuilt into a hotel, then confiscated in favor of US invaders after the war, and already in 1955 it was purchased by the Association of Bavarian Schools and acquired its current appointment. In 1957 new residences and a canteen were built, in 1962-1964 there were already about 16 training places, new sports grounds and a theater appeared. Today the school continues to expand, update and modernize: the assembly hall was recently renovated and equipped.
Initially, the composition of the students was only 18 people, but in just two years their number increased to 100 and continued to increase gradually. Regardless of the class and year, all children study in small groups (8-12 people): this allows the teacher to show great care and participation, closely monitor the progress of each student, monitor possible difficulties and, if necessary, quickly adjust the curriculum. The teaching staff includes more than 100 highly qualified specialists, the majority also lives on campus. The school day (classes) begin on weekdays at 8:15, 4-7 lessons daily (both before and after lunch), in addition, classes are provided on Saturdays.
