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.
We are also fundamentally affected by measures in connection with the pandemic, so at the moment we are lovingly caring for only our youngest pupils in the first and second grades.
"Do you know which test in life is the hardest? The one that is happening now… " How true this quote is can be seen from several angles.
At the beginning of this Friday's letter, I have borrowed the already popular report from the school director from the film Obecná Škola. Since Monday, I have had an unquenchable feeling that it will be heard from our school radio at any moment.
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.
