"It is the concern of these schools to bring about a new generation of human beings who are free from self-centred action"
~~~~~~~~~~~~

"A school is a place where one learns both the importance of knowledge and its irrelevance. It is a place where one learns to observe the world without a particular point of view or conclusion. One learns to look at the whole of man's endeavour, his search for beauty, his search for truth and a way of living that is not a contradiction between conclusion and action. It is a place where both the teacher and the taught learn a way of life in which conflict ends. Conflict is the very essence of violence.

It is here one learns the importance of relationship which is not based on attachment or possessiveness. It is in the school one must learn about the movement of thought, love and death, for all this is the whole of life"

The Intentions of the school

These, stated by Krishnamurti in many public talks and his books, can be summarised as follows:
 
To educate the whole human being

To discover one's own talent and what right livelihood means

To learn the proper care, use and exercise of the body
 
To appreciate the natural world, seeing our place in it and responsibility for it

To explore what freedom and responsibility are in relationship with others and in modern society

To see the possibility of being free from self-centred action and inner conflict

To find the clarity that may come from having a sense of order and  valuing silence
