About us

Core values


The core values of our school are collaboration, health and environment, traditions and responsibility.

We value collaboration highly and for the interest of successful learning and upbringing there is efficient collaboration between all the members of our school community. There is also partnership and collaboration with other schools and our partners.

 The different levels of collaboration that we have are teacher and student; teacher and teacher; student and student; student and school board; teacher and family; teacher and community; child and community; child and friends; school board and parent; school board and community; school and other educational institutions.

The interaction between the members of the school community is respectful, trusting, supportive and accepting.

Health and environment

 Good health is of vital importance for every individual, family and community. Therefore, we value the health of our own as well as others’, together with healthy lifestyles. We treat our surroundings with care and efficiency.  Learning and teaching in our school is intertwined with our natural surroundings. The lessons can take place in our manor park, outdoor pavilion, on different hiking trails, on disc-golf field, on our basketball court or at the stadium; in addition to that,  also in our local Hunter’s Museum (Jäägri Muuseum) where our students can learn about different animals.

Traditions

Traditions are important part of our school life. Our education enhances the love and respect for one’s home, school, and community and reinforces patriotism - we celebrate the Estonian Independence Day with great devotion.

We have various family events taking place in our school (for example around Father’s Day and Mother’s Day), as well as events that are dedicated to  our folk calendar such as St Martin’s Day (Mardipäev), St Catherine’s Day (Kadripäev), Christmas, Shrovetide and Ash Wednesday and every year we also have Saint Georges’ Day run (Jüripäeva jooks). Our school holds annual sports days, and school Olympics in every four years.

One traditional item for our school is the small zither - our students learn how to make and also how to play it.

In every five years we celebrate the anniversary of Mäetaguse school.

Responsibility

For us responsibility is trilateral, the three sides of it being the student, parent and school. Responsibility begins within oneself. The student understands the connection between freedom and responsibility, and learns to take responsibility for their own deeds as well as our society. The student dares to step in and take action when the important values of democratic society (such as equality and tolerance) are ignored. Tolerance is respecting and valuing other people and their cultures.
