Vision and mission of the school
Our task is to educate and raise pupils who have dreams and know how to find ways to make those dreams come true. Every pupil is the best at something and everyone has a chance to be successful in the future.
Who are we, what do we offer?
The private primary school was established on the basis of the decision of the Ministry of Education of the Slovak Republic and was included in the network of primary schools of the Slovak Republic from 1 September 2004. We are a school that focuses on teaching in English language.
From 1 September 2005 we started to teach Slovak-English bilingually according to “Project of experimental verification of bilingual Slovak-English teaching at the 2nd stage of primary school and alternative teaching of English language – language variant at the 1st stage of primary school.” This was terminated on 31.8.2011.
Since 1 September 2013 we have been implementing activities within the project of experimental verification at the 2nd level of primary school CLIL methodology in lower secondary education as a continuation of the project of experimental verification at the 1st level of primary school Didactic effectiveness of the CLIL method at the first level of primary school in the teaching of foreign languages.
This school year we opened 17 classes at our school. We are one of the few schools in Slovakia that use the progressive CLIL method as a tool for improving skills so essential for life in today’s society.
