- AvH Parent

“My children are always happy to go to school, teachers are both friendly and open as well as professional. The school is a safe and welcoming environment with many resources that enable individual learning.”

- AvH Parent

“Was ich an der AvH schätze ist, dass an diesem Ort selbständiges Denken vermittelt wird und Kinder zu ganzheitlichen Personen erwachsen.”

- AvH Parent

“Ich bin hier – at my my school – I’m so happy”

- pré-maternelle

“AvH has played an integral role in sparking my intellectual curiosity. For that alone, I owe the school, my teachers, and my schoolmates a debt of gratitude.”
