Curriculum

Teaching plan

Our curriculum is based on the Framework Education Program for Gymnasiums (RVPG), we use the available hours to increase the number of hours of computer science, English and physical education. We have our own subjects: Infor/maths, Humanities, Science, fully integrating the educational areas described in the RVPG, we far exceed the required output competencies.

From the third year onwards, we offer students compulsory optional subjects and seminars, which creates the possibility of compiling your own schedule focused on the areas that the student wants. Each student then has the so-called "BASE" subjects in the schedule, which are compulsory, and "ADVANCED" subjects, which he can choose himself and only has to observe the total number of hours.

In the 2023/2024 school year, we offer the following seminars for the 3rd and 4th year:

  • Cyber ​​security
  • Algorithmization
  • Python
  • English conversation
  • Financial literacy
  • Creative writing
  • Spanish conversation
  • Introduction to Sociology
  • Psychology
  • Debating

Sound in body, sound in mind

There is a double grant for physical education lessons at our school. There are several reasons for this - see also our Introduction section. We are convinced that getting a positive attitude to healthy and ideally regular exercise is a great benefit for life and we want to focus on it at our school. We approach to physical education individually and we are also interested in related disciplines such as sports physiotherapy. We are sports-based pedagogical team and we have our own sporting activities and thus we want that everyone finds the sport activity that suits him or her. In addition to regular ski tours, we will organize boating trips, camping tours and hiking. If there is enough interest, we can offer several adrenaline disciplines too.

Interwoven educational areas

  •  Informatics, Humanities, Science, English language, Spanish language, Sports and health

We connect learning areas to teach in context. For example, it is not very effective to discuss modern history separately - in history, then in literature, in the basics of social sciences... it is not only cognitively inefficient, it is also impractical and lengthy, because everything is related to everything. It actually applies to all eras. There is also no need to report work with the text to the Czech language class, because the text is also a political discussion, a rant on a social network, or the output of a GPT chat. You always need to understand the content and the intention first, only then are you interested in other circumstances such as formal language devices or whether the text is spelled correctly. In the humanities, we also include teaching financial literacy and guiding students towards entrepreneurship. We focus on the development of students' aesthetic perception, e.g. in the form of artistic creation. There is a theater club at the school, whose student members go regularly to performances of Prague scenes.

In the Science subject, we try to integrate science areas in a similar way. For a deeper understanding of physical and chemical topics, a quality mathematical foundation is usually needed, therefore connecting the natural sciences is more demanding and involves careful planning of the sequence of topics, nevertheless we strive for this and we also try to develop in students a real for scientific research and an effort to critically evaluate sources. 

In all areas, we are interested in the involvement of Artificial intelligence and the possibilities of its use. 

We use English not only in English lessons, but wherever it is appropriate. Our team includes native speakers who try to bring the realities of the countries whose language they speak into their lessons.

We also have the subject "Vuelta" focused on the development of personal and social competences. We borrowed the name from Spanish and it came about in the sense of "we are going back to what happened, we are doing a retrospective". The aim of this course is to teach students to assess the results of their work, to evaluate the efforts made and personal progress. This subject is assessed verbally only. 

IT

We deal with IT areas across and connect algorithmic thinking with mathematics. 

IT topics also affect our other subjects. We want our students to gain insight into technology and have an idea of ​​its influence and use in the professions they choose, and at the same time to learn about the mechanisms by which technology affects a person's mental and physical health. From the third year, students choose the level of technical depth of IT subjects. 

Basic level: advanced user skills, basics of programming and data processing, git, basics of Linux, basics of web development, security topics and digital footprint, principles and uses of AI, disinformation and social networks, company culture and roles in the company, agile approaches, UX, commercial solution versus opensource. 

Advanced level: development of your own software project under expert guidance, possibility to choose from other areas: cyber security, programming - backend, programming - frontend, algorithmization, IoT, neural networks.

YEAR 1 – C# basics, git, html, css, deployment, TCP/IP, micro:bit, ten finger typing and user skills 

YEAR 2 – API, SQL databases, tech. analysis, Python, Javascript, frameworks, UX, social networks, AI

YEAR 3, YEAR 4 – Linux platform, algorithms, IoT, school software projects, Cyber security, IT architecture, Software development process and good practice,  broader digital competence
