Added Value and Advantages of the Zinzendorf Schools

Contacts and Encounters

Contacts and Encounters

Contacts and Encounters can be regulated and minimized if necessary, student groups can be separated easily. Various buildings on campus are within walking distance from one another and class sizes are kept small deliberately – these local structures enable great flexibility in reacting to pandemic conditions.

In the boarding school there are there are exclusively single and double rooms, the floors can be run independently from one another. Boarders are divided into small groups; designated caregivers (social education workers/teachers) are their contact partners for direct communication, address and daily routines.

Digital teaching and learning concepts

Digital teaching and learning concepts

Students are supported individually and (to be caught up) school material is worked through: on the study campus in the afternoon there is supervised study support with our own professional staff (teachers and specialist subject teachers). Individual curricula are informative to learning progress and study targets. Additional tutoring can be arranged.

The new learning studio offers a lot of space for distancing and usability due to its architectural openness and flexibility.

In the two media centers computers with internet accessibility and libraries are available to the students. In the boarding halls PC-rooms for quiet studies are available to the boarders.

On the study campus an emergency support for studying in small groups can be arranged during acute pandemic situations.
