  1. Лилия говорит:

    Добрый день! Хотим заполнить форму для поступления в вашу школу. Вопрос в том что мы с папой не живем можно ли пропустить эти пункты для заполнения?Спасибо.

  2. Question and our reply of one of the questions from a parent of perspective student.

    «I saw your advertisement in the Kyiv Post. After looking on your site, I am concerned that you have VERY few English speaking students, though your curriculum is taught in English. Also, I understand that you mix ages in your classrooms.
    1) Will the 10-year old class be the oldest students in your Lva Tolstogo school?
    2.) WHERE exactly (address) will the school be?
    3.) Do the teachers actually teach any subjects or do the children do independent study for the entire class-three hours of academic time? Are the teachers mostly there to guide the children in their readings of study materials?»

    «Dear Amy, thank you for your questions.
    1. We start of the international program is scheduled on September, so at the moment we neither have ANY English-speaking student nor a teacher. We are still in the preparation process and working only with Ukrainian program this year. At the moment we have 4 students of 8 and 3 of them are bilingual.
    2. Yes, we mix ages in the classroom
    3. The exact address is unknown at the moment as we are going to rent the place for the school in July-August. We plan for it to be between Lva Tolstogo underground station and Botanical garden (5-10 minutes walk). We’ll post address updates to everybody interested in the school.
    4. About the educational process: 50% of the time students work independently and teacher works individually with each students (we plan a ratio of 8 students to 1 teacher). The other 50% of the time is group work. Then those who have to pass Ukraininan program continue with Ukrainian curriculum and those who don’t work with other things.»
