The Evangelische Schule Berlin Zentrum, founded in 2007, is a community school in the heart of Berlin. The schools stands for a radical shift of learning culture. Students learn in inclusive and age-mixed groups, pupils are defining and monitoring their own projects and use teachers as coaches, but moves far beyond that. The philosophy of the esbz comes from the AGENDA21: From mere knowledge transfer to the ability to process knowledge and apply it to one’s own actions, from teaching children to do something to putting children in charge of shaping their own education and life. In school assemblies pupils learn to publicly praise their peers – a cultivate feedback and empathy. One of the subjects is called “Responsibility”, centering on civic engagement in the local community. Every student has to annually (for three years in a row) master a self-chosen three-week “Challenge” outside of school with almost no budget, like hiking across Germany or help building something in a social institution. Although her students have not been selected for intellectual ability, their GPAs in A levels are comparable or better than in other German high schools.
