TOP-10 best private schools in Kazan

TOP-10 best private schools in Kazan

The best private schools in Kazan are independent schools with high-quality educational programs and alternative pedagogical methods. Private schools in Kazan place emphasis in different ways: some on the revival of the traditions of classical education, others on the introduction of advanced programs from foreign experience. Each educational institution offers something special: studying in English in an international environment among foreign students, studying in the atmosphere of the Tsarskoye Selo Lyceum of the XIX century with balls and evenings of poetry or a complete rejection of homework and friendships with teachers. Below SMAPSE experts have compiled a list of the best schools in Kazan with a detailed description of their benefits.

Why choose private schools in Kazan?

The demand for private schools in Kazan is associated with an insufficiently high level of education in a regular school. The large number of classes and the lack of qualified teachers leads to knowledge gaps in priority disciplines. To pass the state exams, parents turn to tutors, but there is another option - to send the child to a private school, where children study in small classes and get more attention from teachers, which makes them much more involved in the educational process. Paying for tuition at a private school in Kazan, parents will not have to look for tutors. In addition, private schools offer advanced teaching methods, allow you to learn several foreign languages at once, and prepare well for the university.

What to look for when choosing a school in Kazan?

  • School profile - which subjects are studied in depth?
  • What is the location of the school - the proximity of transport infrastructure and parkland
  • Language of instruction and bilingual elements - some subjects may be taught in English
  • Teaching Methods - Montessori, DB Elkonina, V.I. Zhokhov and others
  • Infrastructure - the presence of a pool, computer centers, robotics classes
  • Tuition - what is included in the price and what is paid extra.
