          “Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere”

          About us

          The history of our school goes back to the 1st of September, 1963, when a primary school, at Kovacska 30, experimented with an extended foreign language curriculum. After a big success, the entire school was transformed and started providing extended foreign language teaching throughout.

          The school began to teach two compulsory foreign languages, however, from the third grade, pupils could choose between English, German, Russian and French language. Applicants from all over the city were admitted to the third year on the basis of entry exams that tested their proficiency in Slovak language, imitation of a foreign language and listening tasks.

          There has always been a great interest in studying at our school. It grew to 22 classrooms with more than 600 pupils but the premises did not meet the conditions of modern language teaching. Hence, the school was relocated to a new modern building at Námestie Ladislava Novomeského 2 on the 1st of September, 1974.

          The school has continued to grow in popularity with our core values of integrity, excellence and humanity.

          All faculty and students take pride in being a member of our institution. Our school has accomplished a lot during its 50-years of existence. Notably, we are always ranked among the top positions of the best schools in the city thanks to the hard-working, passionate, and goal-oriented faculty members.

          We maintain a strong team of teachers who ensure high-quality teaching standards, especially in the Slovak language, mathematics and foreign languages.

          We believe that no other school can offer our level of quality education to your children. We aim to create a happy and safe environment that helps children to learn with encouragement.
