1. I am from Nizhniy Novgorod. My son is 10 years old, he has been playing hockey for 6 years. Could you please let us know at what age would it be better to enroll in the academy?

During the 2017/2018 season 10 boys from Russia, 4 from Ukraine, and 1 from Kazakhstan will be studying. Their date of birth is from 2000 to 2004. The main difference of the gymnasium where our hockey players chose to study is that all classes are in English. Also, they are going to study a second foreign language, as well as Slovak language and social studies (in Slovak language). There is also a lecture course with a native speaker discussing various topics with the pupils. The control system is based on testing. The goal of the mode of study is the ability to draw knowledge; it is close to real life and is useful. The cases when pupils have to deal with something they will not have to deal with in the future are very rare. Another important difference which is often mistaken for “backlog” is the speed of education. The topics can be “stretched” in time. However, it is worth to remember that summer holidays only last 2 months, and education in bilingual gymnasium takes 13 years. We should also lay emphasis on the grading system: 5 is the lowest grade, and 1 is the highest. Grades are the combination of the percent of tests passed. All the grades are registered in the electronic diary; both the parents and the children have access to it. You will see the complicated calculation of grades in the diary. Let’s look at grading system example using one of the subjects:
Biology: 5.7/9; 12/15; 8/10; 6/14. The total percent of performance is 66%. According to the results of the semester, the student will receive “3” (dobrý), which means that his performance is good.
We should note that the requirements for attire are rather liberal, which is why our boys usually stand out against the general background of jerseys, tights, and Crocs due to their bearing. If you see a student wearing shirts, trousers or even suit jackets, you can be sure that this player is from Russia.
A couple of times a year a “School in nature” is organized. The whole class goes to the mountains. They can go rafting with experienced instructors, skiing or snowboarding. Trips to London, Malta, and Parish are organized quite often for the purpose of language immersion.
We would like to put emphasis on the friendly environment among the students, tolerant attitude towards all foreigners in general and newcomers in particular.
