Detailed information:

The Czech and English teachers in our school are peers who strive to treat students as individuals and to help each one to achieve their full potential. They meet together every week to plan following week’s lessons – discuss the topics and fulfilling the pacing calendars. The English teachers not only teach English language but also cooperate with their Czech colleagues in CLIL method (Content and Language Integrate Learning) when teaching Maths, Art, Music, PE and Science.

During lessons with English teachers the instructions are given only in English so the pupils can hear the right pronunciation and learn new vocabulary in a natural way. They can also practice the vocabulary at home and in day-to-day life.

In our school there is a friendly atmosphere and we encourage a positive thinking of our students. We emphasize the ethical standards in everything we do.

We use the latest interactive whiteboards in all classes and all pupils have access to tablets which are used as learning aids. We use well-known resources and programs like other international schools around the world.

Our school offers an inclusive environment and our classrooms are interactive, creative and stimulating. We care for pupils with SEN (Special Educational Needs), too.
