School description

One of the best Scottish private schools Dollar Academy is located in the same city, near the hilly area Ochil Hills - the road to Edinburgh takes only about 40 minutes, and to the international airport in Edinburgh from the Dollar Academy can be reached by taxi in only half an hour (the distance from Klackmannshire county to London is 652 kilometers).

The city of the Dollar is a fairly well-known and lively tourist center: its main attraction is the ancient Campbell Castle, which annually attracts thousands of people, lovers of history and architecture. The prestigious "neighbours" of the Acadamy Dollar are the university centers of Sterling and St. Andrews: such a student atmosphere gives the students even more comfort and opportunities for persistent, purposeful learning. The educational institution manages to maintain a friendly, calm, chamber atmosphere - from the very first days of stay here, students feel at home.

Dollar Academy is the oldest day school in the world, a boarding school of joint type. The Dollar Academy was founded in 1818: its rich history and traditions are revered by the teaching staff, which, nevertheless, is not afraid to introduce new teaching methods and innovative approaches to education, due to which the school is modern, comfortable, functional and maintains high educational standards. Graduates of the school without special difficulties enter the leading universities in Britain and the world: Oxbridge, Edinburgh University, Glasgow University, Warwick, St Andrews, Durham, UCL, LSE, Bristol and many others. Access is facilitated not only by the highest quality of teaching: the Scottish educational system is highly valued in the world due to the depth of knowledge received by students. An important role is played by developed programs of cooperation and partnership with other students and established programs for student exchange.

Primary school accepts for studying small pupils from 5 to 10 years. At this age, the main thing is not to give the child an extensive knowledge of many academic disciplines, but to instill in him the love of learning, the desire to improve as a person, to grow in personal and academic terms. Students learn the skills of effective and quality independent work, they learn the ability to receive and analyze information, think critically and analytically, work in a team, defend their point of view. Undoubtedly, there is an academic part in the learning process - but the main attention of the teacher is aimed at qualitatively preparing the child for a long and successful further education.
