What is a Thinking School?

  • Thinking School helps students develop their meta-cognition to the highest level. 
  • Child-centered thinking is at the core of a Thinking School.
  • Students are given opportunity to overcome problems by seeking for solutions themselves. 

What you will find in a Thinking School

Join the next big revolution

A Thinking School supports students to think ‘outside the box’. Students will be able to deconstruct their own learning process and even find out what works best for them. The Thinking School approach is not just a subject but an approach to be used by every teacher in every subject. Thinking will help students tackle difficult questions more creatively.

This very exciting initiative, forms part of the Greensprings goal of redefining education in Africa.

Greensprings’ Thinking School ultimately aims to support our alumni so that they can develop solutions that will not only help their own families and communities but can also help Nigeria and Africa to move forward.
