is owned and operated by a teachers' cooperative whose job assignments include teaching, administration, direction of projects, direction of extracurricular activities such as field trips, movies, and lectures, supervision of host families, and making teacher and family assignments. These cooperative members and auxiliary teachers also perform all the necessary day-to-day chores from sweeping the floors to rewiring the lights. The students usually find themselves sharing in these tasks voluntarily. Pop Wuj has very much a community atmosphere: we all get to know each other, and we try to make the school “a home away from home” for our students.
Our maximum capacity is now 50, but we often have fewer students. Our students range from preschool children who study with their parents to retired persons in their seventies. The average summer student is college-aged, but there are frequently many others of all ages. We do accommodate families and are able to teach children, depending on their ages, or just take care of them. We would suggest you to be housed together if your children are young. No one will be
admitted as an unaccompanied minor (under age 18) unless he or she will be 18 within the calendar year and has written permission from parents.
The school has a fully equipped kitchen in which our students enjoy free tea, coffee and drinking water. The kitchen is also used by the students and teachers to cook for the weekly School Dinner. There is also a big rooftop terrace and two living rooms (interior and exterior) where students can relax and sunbathe. Along with these amenities, we also offer Internet access to our students by providing both Internet PCs and Wireless LAN in case you would like to bring you own laptop.
