High school

For middle-class students, the IB Middle Years Program was developed. A special course for pupils of grades 6-10 is not a separate educational course, but an effective addition to the main chosen program, aimed at developing a philosophical, holistic, interdisciplinary approach to learning.

For foreign students, the support course "English as a Foreign Language" (EAL) is offered. These are classes in small groups with specially accredited specialists, aimed at the overall development of all key language skills: reading, listening, writing and speaking. After the completion of an additional intensive course, foreign students can study together with their peers only on the main course.

The IB Diploma program is aimed at pupils of 11-13 grades. This is both a secondary education course for high school students, and effective preparation for the selected university: the IB certificate is highly valued all over the world extremely high, so it does not limit graduates in choosing a priority university.

In addition to the subjects chosen for study, students also attend several compulsory additional courses:

  • General theory of cognition (TOK), increase of basic academic skills and productivity of studies;
  • CAS (Activity, creativity, service): a comprehensive program combining creative activities and volunteer, social activity, charitable activities;

Advanced Placement

The course is designed for high school students (11-13 grades), corresponding to the American national standards of secondary education. The program is quite complex and intensive: subjects are studied deeply and thoroughly, therefore, the AP certificate is valued so highly. Students can choose priority disciplines for themselves, after consulting with the curator and teachers.
