Students are taught to think critically and motivate to achieve. This style of teaching spurs interest in in-depth study of priority subjects. The program, aimed at developing self-confidence, is suitable for purposeful students.

As for academic preparation, students are offered a large selection of subjects. Obligatory is the study of science (methodology) and mathematics. In total, to receive IB Diploma, it is enough to pass examinations in 6 subjects. Teaching of disciplines is conducted at the standard and advanced levels.
