In Fjölbrautaskólinn í Breiðholti school students are completely autonomous in their studies. When a specific term is reached students can choose an optional course of their liking to improve diversity in their school life. Badminton is one of the options. This is in a particular sports category where activities of your liking can be selected such as spinning, volleyball, basketball and more. Students can be learning science physics but still choose an art class as an optional course.
The thinking behind this is for the students to try something new while the main subjects are still being succeeded. This is for their upcoming future plan. Some might not continue school but many will go on and the students will choose their University. When the time comes, many students have their minds open then just focusing on one subject because later on your heart might really want to study art in the future even though you took math and physics in High School.
