Talented children and mentoring

We focus significantly also on children who have been recognised as extraordinarily gifted. The essential and key task of our Elementary School is to ensure a happy life for your child and promote their balanced development through an appropriate combination of scholastic and extracurricular educational activities. If you child has been recognised as talented in a particular area, we develop his or her qualifications for further studies. Our primary intention is to develop the capabilities of these gifted children, for which we employ our trained teachers and psychologists. We also apply individual approach to each child. The school aims not only to develop the children´s knowledge but their whole personalities as well. The school puts a great emphasis on developing social and emotional skills which, in some cases, may be one of the weaknesses of talented children. We teach them to recognise their strengths and improve their potential weaknesses. We also teach them to manage stress better, which is caused by new situations.

Our Elementary School benefits from the synergy between the PRIGO schools by using individual mentoring: every pupil of the Elementary School – “Buddie” has their mentor – “Buddy” from the Gymnasium junior years who assists them in school and after-school activities and helps them in their transition to the secondary school. 

We also use general mentoring, in which younger and older children interact at the level of the Elementary School as well as with students of the Gymnasium and universities through many events.
