  • The global context
  • Approaches to teaching
  • General ideas, concepts, ideas.

Further, students acquire skills of independent work and work in the team, skills of action and skills of service (public works). Thus, all the acquired knowledge has a need to "implement", because in itself the possession of information does not provide the same benefits as its application in life.

Subjects are divided into several groups:

  • English Language and Literature
  • Personality and Society
  • Mathematics
  • Design
  • Art
  • Science
  • Sports education
  • Foreign language.

The peculiarity of schooling is that at the end of this program girls do not pass final / transfer exams, but a personal project is conducted. A creative independent research is being prepared, during which the students have the opportunity to practice the received knowledge in practice.
