    Petersburg Lyceum "Aristos" reviews

    The soul rejoices when I see my daughter in the evening after school. She is so passionate about her studies, she likes the process and various school activities so much that I understand that we chose the school correctly!
    Smapse Manager
    Good day. Thank you for your kind and wonderful feedback about the school!
    Due to the strong employment, they decided to transfer their son to full board, at least for a while. Fortunately, the program for children is good and safety is at a high level. When our son comes on vacation, we hear from him only positive stories about the Lyceum and how interesting it is for him there.
    Smapse Manager
    Good afternoon, Maya. Thank you for your feedback, the school really pleases.
    All the teachers of the lyceum are excellent, but I'll just single out the master of physics, Daniil Petrovich Potapenko. Thanks to him, my son makes great strides in the field of this science, participates in olympiads and even thinks about choosing an institute in this direction.
    Smapse Manager
    Thanks for your feedback! We wish your son success in his education.
    Studied here! I remember these years with warmth, thank you!
    Manager SMAPSE
    Rinata, good afternoon! Thanks for your feedback, it will help other students make the right decision. Regards, Smaps
    We respect and love all the teachers of the Lyceum, and special thanks to Olga Avgustovna, the teacher of the Russian language, for returning our daughter's love for this subject and improving her academic performance. We have never regretted that they transferred the child to study the courts, the difference between an ordinary school and this private school is huge.
    Manager SMAPSE
    Anna, good afternoon! Thanks for your feedback. This information will help parents make decisions when choosing a school. Best regards, SMAPS
    Lycée this so-called is no different from the usual filthy little school. But they fight for their “services” at exorbitant prices. Teachers only criticize unreasonably, but they cannot really teach anything. The building is old, there is mold in the walls - than children are breathing. The gymnasium in the basement is covered with some kind of dusty white carpet, which is unknown when the last time was cleaned and even in good weather, for some reason, children should exercise inside on this dusty carpet. The so-called guesthouse - the rooms there are uncomfortable, shabby almost prison regime - for those who like to torment their children - just right. During the big break, children do not even go outside, all the time they sit inside and breathe this dust with mold. But the main thing is the complete laxity, lack of professionalism and the position “maybe” of the employees of this institution. Few of them own a computer, and communication is at the zero level. They absolutely don't give a damn what their parents are asking for; moreover, they, resting their horn, splashing saliva, will prove that they are right, and the client is wrong. Especially the director of this school thinks he is a god, hung his portraits everywhere along with the portraits of Putin and Jesus Christ — it looks just like pathetic, filthy old stuff. For the money that they row - the service would have to be better. Well, the canteen, respectively, just stinks. In general, strictly NOT recommended - do not spend money where you can get all this piece of shit for free.
    Good afternoon, Rosanna! Thanks for your feedback, it will help other students make the right decision. Regards, Smaps
