What we do
Between the years 2018 and 2020, the four countries involved in the project will prepare students' mobilities in each country. It is a unique opportunity for students to get to know the way of living of others, to get involved in special activities concerning the theme of the project and to grow in knowledge.

The Lentiz Dalton MAVO & Het Groene Lyceum
The Lentiz Dalton MAVO & Het Groene Lyceum is located in Naaldwijk in the Westland area. It is very close to the sea. The lyceum has about 850 students and it is a Dalton school. As Helen Parkhurst once said: "Dalton is no method, no system, it is a way of life!"
It is not a traditional school and students can work on their own pace and level. This method started last year, so the students on the 1st and 2nd years work according to this method. The students on their 3rd year get the opportunity to go abroad on an exchange.
