- The Open Gate curriculum is approved by the Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sports. Our IB curriculum has been subject to a rigorous accreditation process and has been summarily approved by the IBO.
- Classes focus on teaching living languages, mainly English. Starting in the third form, students take up a second foreign language.
- Open Gate is specially designed for a smaller number of students. There are not more than 18 students in each class, which allows for an individual approach to all of them.
- Our teachers are selected based on their experience, professional skills and dedication to their subjects.
- Our objective is to create engaging, challenging and relevant learning experiences.
- Our classes engage in a myriad of teaching styles and methodologies aimed at bringing out the fullest potential of each and every student. Methodologies employed run the entire gamut from team teaching through to lectures.
- Projects, both full group and individual research, are another form of teaching that uses an interactive approach, promotes co-operation and learning through experience, and overcomes problems with isolated and fragmentary information. Projects are part of both extracurricular activities and classes and improve students’ knowledge.
Career counselling is another important aspect of study at OPEN GATE, involving professional assistance in deciding the course of students’ further education and professional path. This process begins in the fifth year with progressive acquisition of important information on the education systems in the Czech Republic and abroad. In later years, the entire process is intensified with preparations for the required international examinations. Together with their career counsellor, the school psychologist and their teachers, students undertake the final selection of universities, write the required essays, create a standardized CV and obtain letters of recommendation. In the final year, students experience the culmination of the whole process, when they sit examinations and participate in admissions processes. Thus, generally this involves elaborate and above standard assistance and support that enables students to choose the path that maximally corresponds to their individual needs, ambitions and abilities.
