“School must be a place where children feel very comfortable, but are also challenged. In elementary school, children are in the ‘golden age of education’. They not only learn the necessary skills such as reading, writing and arithmetic, but above all they develop attitudes and habits that they will carry throughout their lives: How do I deal with my fellow human beings? How do I learn to use my freedom responsably? In this sense, I would like to give children the tools for a happy and successful life. That’s what we do at the Stella International School. “
