Help us to establish this school in Bavaria!

The survival of our school is severely threatened! We need support urgently! 

This is how you can help!

  • Sponsoring membership By means of a sponsoring membership you can help us to meet the monthly costs of 4000 euros for rent, credit repayment and other costs. For instance, if just 400 people pay 10 euros a month, this will secure our financial position and enable us to continue working towards reopening. Write us here to become a sponsoring member: We send you the formular. 
  • Help us to gain more sponsoring members! It would be fantastic if you also join us in finding more supporters. Talk to family, friends and acquaintances.
  • Individual donation! Every donation helps, never mind how big or small! The school's sponsoring body 'Sudbury München e.V.' is recognized as a charity. It is empowered to receive donations and provide receipts. (Check tax deductibility for your country.)                               

 Our donations account: Stadtsparkasse München (Munich Municipal Savings Bank)

Dear Friends and Supporters - bad news - Januar 2016

bad news:                       [nbsp

The Administrative Court has rejected our current appeal, which was about the school being able to continue operations at least until final adjudication of our appeal against the authorities closing down the school.

This means the school must remain closed. The main case against the closure is continuing, but no date has been named regarding adjudication.

This decision has come as a major blow to the whole school community! Lots of the children who were happy at the Sudbury School Ammersee are having a bad time. We still find the decision to close the school groundless, and the closure has already caused a great deal of damage!

Nevertheless, we are determined to keep going and rally round for our school! We invested nine years in founding the school prior to getting approval, and we certainly won't be giving up now! We are now investigating other legal options and other paths that may help us achieve our aim (political, public awareness, networking).

As soon as we have more information to pass on, we will let you know.

It is great to know that you are still rooting for us — sticking together and supporting each other are now more important than ever!

How could that happen? - September 2016

Questions and answers about the present situation of Sudbury School Ammersee
As of 19.09.2016

How are the children?
The situation is very stressful for the entire school community. A student said: “We love our school. Why don’t you understand that we want to learn here?” Two additional students wrote on a poster: “The school of our choice is closed. Democracy?”

Why had the government first informed the Sudbury School Ammersee just one day before the beginning of vacation that the school was no longer approved? Had the school missed a deadline?
The application for continued approval was timely filed on 31.03.2016. The government responded at the last possible moment, leaving the school no time to maneuver.

Israeli-German education exchange

The Sudbury School Ammersee and its close relationship to Israel

The Sudbury School Ammersee, without its years-long relationship to Israeli representatives of democratic and particularly Sudbury schools, would be unthinkable. Israeli experts have already accompanied the founding, given a decisive impulse, and supported the development and evaluation of the school, even moreso since its opening through ongoing coaching.
