Escola da Ponte

Escola da Ponte is a school in Portugal that has embodied Meaningful Student Involvement in classrooms successfully for over 30 years.

Students voluntarily attend workshops to learn how to direct their learning processes. These courses are supervised by teachers trained in active methodologies. After they’ve completed these workshops, students develop the school’s curricula. Mainly governed by a weekly assembly, the school is organized and totally run by students.
