Besides that History, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Philosophy are taught in English in 9th and 10th grades. Students are streamed according to their preferences into the following groups: History and Literature, Mathematics and Literature, Mathematics and Geography, Biology and Chemistry.
We have also participated in three two-year Comenius projects with other European counties (France, Spain, Turkey, Poland, Slovenia, Romania) and a number of two-year Erasmus + project (Portugal, Germany, Lithuania, Estonia, Italy, etc.) in the last ten years.
Since our students have different interests, there are a number of extra-curricular activities they can choose from: maths clubs, web-design clubs, journalism, drama clubs, law-club, debate-club, folk-dances club, cheer-leader’s club and a variety of sports clubs. Creative, enthusiastic and knowledgeable, our students often show their skills and intelligence by joining in different campaigns and competitions on local, regional, national and international levels.
We have participated in a number of Moot Courts since January 2018 – both the World and European formats.
