How are Lumiar Schools different? How is the learning process organised? What about teachers? What are the achievements of the Lumiar Schools?

We all know that being able to teach children something they’re really interested in, results in enormous increases in retained knowledge. Mr. Semler’s Lumiar Schools aims to act upon this fact by providing a unique learning space for children. His schools tries to create an environment for wisdom, rather than feed students information they can find in 30 seconds on Google ! Children determine what is interesting and then the school lets them get the most out of every topic and project. For example, from one project on the World Cup, the school calls in teachers or “masters” of geometry, physics, history, geography and more!
