Description Insight International School St. Petersburg

  • Established: 2001
  • Language of instruction: Russian, English
  • Location: St. Petersburg, Russia
  • Type: private.

  An international elementary school was opened in St. Petersburg in 2001. The initial goal is to educate English-speaking children living in the city at the same level that would be available to them in England. The British National Curriculum enables each student to continue their education in schools or higher education in the United Kingdom.

In the ranks of students, the school accepts both English-speaking and Russian-speaking children aged 3 to 10 years. Children, whose mother tongue is Russian, master two curricula at once and receive two documents on education.

Insight International School is the only school in the city that is considered international and has the right to teach both programs - both Russian and English - as primary, and not additional.

Control over training is carried out immediately by two organizations:

  • Education Committee of St. Petersburg, which is responsible for verifying the compliance of the Federal State Educational Standard and the School of Russia program
  • The British National Curriculum is the School-in-UK area of responsibility administered by the UK's Chief Education Inspector. Every year, students take tests on the British system, which gives them the opportunity to transfer to any educational institution in England.

The Insight International School consists of two educational structures:

  • Pre-school - kindergarten, preparation for elementary school
  • Primary School is a primary school itself.

Russian-speaking students master the program "Schools of Russia" on GEF in full. The curriculum is compiled under the guidance of A.A. Pleshakov - candidate of pedagogical sciences, adapted to the requirements of modern students, based on a personality-oriented approach. After the 4th grade, students pass the All-Russian verification work.

The English-language communication program is fully consistent with the one in which students in the UK study, it was improved in 2016 in accordance with all the latest teaching technologies. All teachers of the English department are native speakers with a pedagogical education and extensive experience.
