Vilnius - School Report Question and Answers
Aside from school fees, are there required expenses such as uniforms, laptops/tablets, musical instruments, or field trips that parents are expected to cover? What are the approximate costs?
There is a "bring your own device" policy in place beginning in grade 6. It doesn't require any specific brand or style, but laptops are encouraged. My daughter actually uses her Ipad with an external keyboard. There are field trips and sports events within the CEESA sphere that make travel necessary, and parents are responsible for those expenses. Each year the upper classes take a trip and this is at your expense as well. For example, IB Week Without Walls in Portugal, MUN in Poland, Art History trip to London for ninth graders, etc. Costs vary but we paid 350 euros for a trip to Berlin. The Portugal trip was 500 due to the cost of the workshops provided there. It varies. Local trips within Lithuania are usually covered by the school. - Sep 2018
