Moscow - School Report Question and Answers
Please tell us anything else you think prospective parents and students should know about this school. Thanks for your contribution!
The school is in the process of changing its status from an Embassy-sponsored school to an independent educational institution in Russia. This is something that has been in the school's long-terms plans for a while but is now being fast-tracked mainly due to the recent political climate, which has made it increasingly difficult for the school to secure visas for new teachers (they come in on diplomatic passports and visas.) The transition will probably happen during the course of the 2021-2022 school year. I think from a parent and family perspective, the impact of this will actually be minimal. There are no plans that I am aware of to change the curriculum or anything about the educational philosophy or approach. It will free the school up to hire qualified overseas teachers whereas currently it is almost impossible for them to replace anyone who leaves. It's something to be aware of if you are coming, but not something to worrry about in terms of the quality of education your children are likely to receive. - Jan 2021
