We are happy to introduce the PRIGO Group. Schools that are, with regards to current social needs, constantly expanding their offer of educational activities in sense of study programmes provided as well as places of education. The group includes kindergartens, elementary schools, high schools, colleges and universities that share common mission and vision.
Our educational strategy is based on the application of a unique, trademark-protected PriorityGO approach, a combination of individualisation of teaching, modern didactic methods and respect for the challenges of contemporary society. We see education as a lifelong philosophy and a continuous approach to life, not as a means to achieve other goals. PriorityGO is also a concept based on promoting an ethical approach to education, environmental sustainability and extracurricular or civic activities. Within this framework, PRIGO schools focus not only on theoretical education, but especially on the employability of graduates in their future lives.
In accordance with the IB mission, we want to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. We encourage our pupils and students to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
Our Center for Working with Exceptionally Gifted Students (CEMNAS) supports talented students who have special educational needs and increased need for individualisation of teaching, as these needs do not always meet understanding at common public schools.
Being a part of the PRIGO Group also means never being alone at school. We apply our BuddyGO mentoring system across all schools. As a result, all buddies learn responsibility, respect and understanding. Older buddies help younger friends orient themselves in all school activities, engage them in extracurricular activities and help them find new friendships.
The PRIGO trademark means Priority, Innovations, Growths and Openness. This concept characterizes our philosophy which also includes strong support for internationalisation at all levels. We cooperate with our partner schools in USA, Great Britain, Germany, France, China and many others. For more on the international cooperation, see here.
PRIGO is a school for life as it will be. We do our best to prepare our pupils and students to succeed in their future life, despite the fact that none of us has a clear idea as to what society and life will look like in a few decades. Our philosophy is based on the ten principles of the PriorityGO approach. We strive to educate creative personalities with a strong sense of adaptability and flexibility who will be able to prove themselves successful in life both at home and abroad. Therefore, we consider the development of critical thinking as the basis for preparation for future life. We emphasize modern didactic methods and the development of general competencies in teaching. We are aware of the fact that the school itself is no longer the sole or main source of information, and that its role is to some extent assumed by the online environment in the present time. That is why modern technologies are particularly important for us. We use mobile devices and the Internet environment not only as a part of teaching, but also in all other activities associated with attending the school. Our goal is for technologies to become a natural part of life, a tool for solving problems and simplifying work and life in general, not as a mean of consuming free time and replacing one’s personal social ties. Meanwhile, we respect the traditional values and our cultural-historical environment.
