Private educational institutions are an absolute trend in the educational sphere of Ukraine. At a time when public schools follow standard and often outdated teaching formats, private schools continue to keep up with the times. Today they are successfully adapting to the demanded standards in world education and are betting on the development of multifaceted personalities. How are these educational institutions in Kiev organized today and where is the best place to send your child, taking into account his needs? We answer these questions in our article.
The advantages of choosing to study in a private school today are much greater than in a public one. Firstly, such educational institutions are equipped at a fairly high level, including classroom furniture, computer equipment, modern design and a well-groomed closed territory. Secondly, all private schools practice an individual approach to the child with his maximum involvement in the educational process. As a rule, the number of students in one class here does not exceed 12-15 children. In comparison, public schools easily recruit classes of 27-30 children. Thirdly, it is a training format that involves a deep study of the exact sciences, basic subjects and foreign languages, as well as the development of leadership skills.
Even specialized private schools have been opened in Kiev, aimed at learning the programming language, entrepreneurship and financial literacy. In addition, most of them offer students improved nutrition, a variety of circles such as acting, athletics, drawing and singing. At the same time, after graduation, all private schools in Kiev issue state-recognized certificates to graduates, and some specialized ones also provide international certificates with which students can continue their education abroad: in Canada, the USA or the UK. There are also schools that can remotely educate children in US schools. After passing such training, they receive a certificate of graduation from an international school, which, unlike Ukrainian, is recognized in all countries of the world.
