• Willkommen in Haubinda

    Welcome to Haubinda

    We live in harmony with the natural world among 90 hectares (over 222 acres) of meadows and forest allowing us to learn to use natural resources sustainably.

  • Landwirtschaft und Handwerk

    Agriculture and Farming

    'Living and learning within nature' - this motto is the focus of the Boarding School Village in Haubinda, Thuringia. At Hermann Lietz School we place great importance on an ecologically sustainable education with a strong farming aspect.

  • Bei uns zählt die Demokratie

    Democracy Counts

    One of the unique student experiences offered by Hermann Lietz Boarding School Village: The School Law Court. This is where young people learn to make well-considered decisions.

  • Über sich selbst hinauswachsen

    Stretching Yourself

    Sport is a strength of our school: From Yoga to Volleyball to Hockey numerous courses are offered to students.

  • Gemeinsam kreativ werden

    Being Creative Together

    Through drama, pottery, drawing or singing in the school choir, creativity and a sense of community are strengthened.

  • Leben und Lernen im Grünen

    Living and Learning Close to Nature

    The school's situation in the countryside is invaluable: In this fast-paced, materialistic world its isolated location offers opportunities for drawing breath and gaining inner balance as well as developing an ecological consciousness.

  • Gemeinsam Zeit verbringen

    Spending Time Together

    In our school community the day begins with breakfast together in the dining hall and stretches through the hours of schooling, study and assembly time to evening storytime in the boarding house. In all this there is a sense of German 'Gemütlichkeit', an atmosphere of cosy familiarity.


 

Hermann Lietz Boarding School Village Haubinda

The Hermann Lietz Boarding School Village is unique in German education.

At our school, we focus on shaping well-rounded personalities and allowing young people to grow up close to nature. Taking joy in learning is the prerequesite for lifelong learning, which is why we aim to instill and nurture a love of learning in our pupils.

In our own 'School State' our children and young people learn to take responsibility for the community and solve issues independently and democratically.

Our extremely rural location is purposely chosen and a great asset in this respect. Situated idyllically in the south of the German state of Thuringia (Thüringen), our students grow up in a safe and nurturing village community.

The boarding school is organised around units of 8 to 12 pupils, which we term 'boarding families' to reflect their nature as a home from home and safe space for our boarders. Each boarding family has its own house featuring accommodation in double or (rarely) single rooms, a resident house master or mistress and a communal space to meet and chat.  For communal use by all students, there is a bakehouse, the garden with a greenhouse, a large organic farm, a large moder sports hall and  spacious workshops for wood and metal work. All of these are essiential elements of life in Haubinda.

In a fast-paced world, we offer a chance to draw strength out of the quiet beauty of nature and to develop an ecological consciousness. This focus on a lifestyle close to the natural world sharpens the eye for the essential things in life and reflects a healthy lifestyle.

In all this, and especially through practical work in agriculture, the young citizens of our village learn how to use natural resources sustainably and understand the natural production cycle.

What is covered by these fees?

Boarding school fees cover all costs arising through a child attending the boarding school. This includes all lessons, extra tuition in Math, German and Foreign Languages if needed, accommodation and meals in the boarding school as well as supervision and care outside school hours.

Which costs may arise on top of regular school fees?

Complimenting lessons at school there are trips which may cause addidtional costs. On top of this, each pupils receives an age-appropriate amount of pocket money which is paid out of the account of disbursements. In addition this, pupils will need tickets for travel to and from the school (train or plane tickets, bus transfers to and from the school). This entirely depends on the cost of travel from the student’s home.
