Private School "Epishkola"

Address: st. Stakhanovtsev, 13-a, St. Petersburg, 195196

Description Private School "Epishkola"

  • Year of foundation: 1992
  • Location: St. Petersburg, Russia
  • Age: 6-17 years old
  • Type of institution: private school
  • Language of instruction: Russian
  • Type of education: program
  • Form of study: full-time
  • Number of students: 52 people.

The private school “Epishkola” is famous for its non-standard approach to learning: for example, pupils of the school do not receive grades from the first to the eighth grades, but each has a personal record book, where the student’s achievements are marked in comparison with his own success of the past six months, and not with the success of others. Accompanied by the curator, everyone can move along their own educational route, taking into account his interests, abilities, and further life goals. Additional studies in studios and individual creative projects of students are subject to the same.

Teachers are trying to teach students to put knowledge into practice. To do this, twice a year, pupils of "Epishkoly" are sent to a recreation center in the Leningrad region, where education continues in a game and research form. The flexible system allows for inclusive education, but the number of such students in the school community is quite small, which allows us to pay special attention to each of them.

The conceptual basis for the construction of the educational process in Episkol are the ideas of the “new education”, which include the following provisions:

  • the student does not prepare for life - he already lives a full life now, and his personal problems are just as real and important for him as the personal problems that arise in adults;
  • human development, and in particular, the student, occurs through active interaction with the surrounding life;
  • at school it is important to promote the general development of students' intellectual abilities, the development of thinking as a research, and not just the accumulation of learned knowledge;
  • training should be based on the personal experience of students, taking into account their needs and interests;
  • the desire to organize the educational process on the basis of expedient, independent, productive activity; providing opportunities for students to participate in free work;
  • the organization of students' self-control in the educational process and life, the desire to compare their results with their previous ones, and not with the results of other students;
  • the organization of the intraschool system of self-government with the involvement of teachers, pupils, parents.

In grades 9-11, when developing an individual student’s route, the curator takes into account the student's  preferences, including in the number of subjects studied, subjects chosen by him.

Most often, in grade 11, subjects are selected for which the student is going to take the EGE, but this is not only history, social studies, literature, geography, but also music. If desired, students can choose a special course on a narrow subject: “Features of the functioning of the human body”, “Nuclear Physics”, “Art of the 19th century” and others.
