Witch School in Salem

It would even be breathtaking if such a school did not arise in a town famous worldwide for its terrible judicial action against 200 inhabitants accused of warlocking. Surprisingly, it was founded by a priest, Rev. Ed Hubbard. The school studies basic warlock techniques and the witch belief system. Most of the courses can be taken remotely, but some subjects are taught on a full-time basis.

The institution’s website was opened in 2004, and since then more than 200 thousand people have enrolled in the school.

The activities of the school of witches are criticized by representatives of the American Orthodox Church. But, despite this, it continues to exist and attract the attention of students from all over the world.

School on the railway platform

From witchcraft to hunting husbands: The most unusual schools in the world 4

At stations in India, you can see a huge number of children begging for passers-by. This is a sad sight, and without education, a completely unenviable future awaits them. The teacher from the town of Orissa – Inderjit Khurana – decided to give these children a chance for a normal life, having organized the first school in the country on the platform 25 years ago.

Initially, only one school of this format was planned. But during this period of time, the organization Rushika, founded by Khurana, was able to open 14 schools in which at least 1.5 thousand children study.

In the morning, about 30-40 people gather at the station for four-hour classes. There are no desks and boards. Kids learn through games, songs, poems and puppet shows. Any of them can come and go from the lesson whenever he wants. The organization also provides children and their families with free food and essential medicines.

Brooklyn Freestyle School

As the name implies, this educational institution is located in one of the districts of New York – Brooklyn. The school has existed since 2004. There is no class schedule and any inherent rules. The theory of the school is to allow students to find their own path. Students decide for themselves what to study and what classes to attend. If they are not interested in the exercises, they can just get up and go home. At school, no one looks at the performance of students, they are practically left to their own devices.

Bangladesh’s floating schools

Floods often occur in Bangladesh due to heavy rains, putting thousands of children under the questionnaire (the pedagogical process, as a result of which students under the guidance of a teacher acquire knowledge, skills) . The non-profit organization Shidhulai Swanirvar Sangstha took the initiative and organized a huge number of floating medical posts and schools in the villages. Now children do not need to go on foot to classes – boats pick them up on the shore and take them home after school. The project met expectations – at the moment there are more than 100 floating schools in the country, which even have computers, access to the web and small libraries.

Dongzhong Cave School

Dongzhong Cave is located in the Chinese province of Guizhou in the small village of Mao. She is known for the fact that in 1984 local residents opened a school in her, tired of waiting for the authorities to build a suitable building. The cave is quite spacious – up to 200 children could fit in it without effort. In addition to several pavilions with desks and boards, a basketball court was also equipped in Dongzhong.

The cave school managed to survive for 23 years – in 2007, local authorities closed it, promising to build a real school in Mao.

School of the Future in Philadelphia

This educational institution was opened in 2006. According to the statement of its founders, this is the first model of how all schools will look in the future. Students here do not use textbooks and pens. All materials are in Microsoft applications, namely in the One Note Digital Notebook. Every student has his own digital locker, which is revealed using an ID-card.

Classes at school last seven hours – from 9 to 16. In practice, just like working in an office, children are prepared for adulthood.

The first years, the adaptation of students to learning at school was quite difficult: not all students had sufficient abilities to switch to one hundred percent digital learning (the pedagogical process, as a result of which students, under the guidance of a teacher, acquire knowledge, skills and abilities) . Over time, the system was established, and at the moment, the School of the Future is one of the most successful educational institutions in Philadelphia.

Elf School

If you want to carefully study Icelandic folklore about the life of elf creatures tiny and invisible to the human eye, then you need to urgently sail to Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. Since 1990, an unusual school has been opened here, which has already trained more than 9 thousand students – mostly foreigners.

Students learn to distinguish all 13 types of elves. Training materials carefully outline the creatures, and in the classrooms are educational posters with bare elves – to find out if suddenly these creations meet in the forest. At the end of the training, students receive a diploma.

Maharishi School

This school, which was opened in 1986 in Lancashire in the UK, does not go for knowledge of arithmetic or chemistry. In school, Maharishi students develop opportunities for clairvoyance and telepathy. Students meditate a lot and recognize themselves. You must admit that this is completely different from the classical school, but the non-least institution is popular and is among the best schools in England.

Hunting School for Husbands

From witchcraft to hunting husbands: The most unusual schools in the world 11

In the Land of the Rising Sun, loneliness has long since become a mass phenomenon. A large number of ladies aged 20 to 30 years can not make their personal life. In the old days, when the ancestors organized the marriage, families were created much more often. Later, traditions gave way to the space of increasing independence of Japanese women, expectations and requirements for a possible spouse increased.

And here it turned out that finding a suitable spouse is absolutely difficult.

At the Tokyo School for Hunting Husbands, students are taught to maintain posture, have a conversation and set the table, correctly set values, establish communication with the spouse and his family and almost all other things that are needed in home life. Education (the pedagogical process, as a result of which students under the guidance of a teacher master knowledge, skills and abilities) at school is expensive – about 2,000 bucks a year, but it is still very popular – especially among women in the 30+ age group.

Santa Claus School

From witchcraft to hunting husbands: The most unusual schools in the world 12

The oldest school teaching volunteers the art of bringing children satisfaction was based in Michigan back in 1937 by American actor Charles Howard. To this day, students are trained to match the classic look of good Santa. Students must master the rules of etiquette, gestures, an unusual manner of speech and even the art of dressing like Santa Claus in order to become worthy ambassadors of the head sign of Christmas and {New Year}.
