We will help you!

We will help you get used to your new school. Your mentor is your confidant to whom you can always turn. Your class also has two mini mentors. These are students from class 4 who will quickly show you around the school. You can ask them anything you want! If you find some subjects difficult, you can get extra help. We have help classes in French, English, Dutch, math and biology. You can also get help with fear of failure or social-emotional problems.

Our school also offers you extras such as:

  • Cambridge Pro and reinforced French;
  • BrainSport junior; a learning line for the gifted;
  • Drawing and computer science as an exam subject;
  • First Lego League (developing robots);
  • Master classes at Eindhoven University of Technology.

Quest

Quest is a subject taught only at the Lorentz Casimir Lyceum. During these classes you learn to cooperate, research, present and evaluate. You work in groups on different projects. In these projects you work on a current or relevant topic and several subjects are involved. In this subject you learn to deal with digital technology in our society and we pay attention to citizenship education. In addition, you learn to work on your research skills. A guest lesson, visiting a company or a workshop by an external expert ensure that within Quest you learn what the world outside the school looks like. Each project concludes with a final presentation. Your parents, brothers, sisters and other interested parties are then all welcome at our school. Of course you will be guided by your Quest teacher and your mentor in the lessons and during the presentation.

What do we think is important at the Lorentz Casimir Lyceum?

  • That there is a safe school climate;
  • That every student is seen and known;
  • That differences among students are recognized and understood;
  • That you are challenged at your own level;
  • That you get the opportunities to develop your talents to the maximum;
  • That you are well guided in your learning process.
