Grammar School and Primary School
We help students discover their distinctive talent and to develop freely. We offer an excellent start to future researchers, artists, engineers, and athletes.
Monday morning’s assembly for the lower high school was devoted to literature and one specific genre: the detective story. We would like to thank our colleagues from the Czech language and literature department.
The first full week of November is ending, which means that Halloween and Dušičky are over, the first Advent Sunday is three weeks away and in six weeks and a bit, Christmas awaits us. There's always something to look forward to.
Over eight weeks we have attended a number of assemblies with different topics or guests. Just before the fall holidays we had the opportunity to meet an extraordinarily interesting guest - Ladislav Zibura, a traveler and an author of books about his travels.
We take children as they are and help them discover their best qualities. Through knowledge of the world and of their own personalities, we open up the gates to an enriched life.
We teach the way we ourselves would like to be taught: interactively, in small teams, emphasising personal development and talent. We prepare students for the Czech school leaving examination as well as the International Baccalaureate.
Thanks to the generous scholarships granted by The Kellner Family Foundation, we also provide superior education to the school’s students who are unable to pay the school fees.
The Student’s Profile
We teach students to know the world and themselves. We guide them towards independence, responsibility, and critical thinking. This is why they pass the International Baccalaureate and the Czech school leaving examination with flying colours and continue at prestigious universities.
State-of-the-art laboratories, a music rehearsal studio, a school theatre, and a library with a broad range of publications. But also a swimming pool, a fitness club, a playing field, and a sportshall. We think of every talent and how to develop it.
We prepare students for the International Baccalaureate and the Czech state school leaving examination. Towards the end of their Open Gate attendance they decide which of the examinations they want to complete, frequently opting for both.
We offer lodging in the school’s living quarters to grammar school students right on campus. We can therefore accept students from across the Czech Republic. Lifelong friendships are forged here in this close-knit community.
Academic clubs are managed by students who want to gain a much deeper insight into the discipline of their dreams. Together, they take internships, invite experts from industry and learn every detail of their subjects.
We offer help of psychologists, coaches, therapists and other specialists to students and all others connected with Open Gate. Almost every one of us needs advice sometimes, both on school and on life issues.
For students who commute, we provide a school bus to take pupils and students from Prague to Babice and back on school days. The bus is also used for various excursions and events outside the school grounds.
