BOS SCHOOL follows two main approaches:
DEMOCRATIC SCHOOL: It is an educational ideal in which democracy is both a goal and a method of instruction. It is based on two tenets: educational freedom and democratic governance. These are components of quality, real-life, experiential, hands-on education where students are free to choose how to spend their time and decisions affecting the school community are made by those affected by the decisions.
FOREST SCHOOL : This approach sees children as equal, unique and competent to explore, learn and discover by choosing, initiate and drive their own learning and development. Forest School approach supports the development of a relationship between the learner, natural world and the community of people through a learner-centered processes that fosters resilience, confidence, independence and creativity. It offers learners the opportunity to take supported risks appropriate to the environment and to themselves.
