The school is its own community

Mentoring

Measuring a student’s abilities using our tailored methodology continues throughout a student’s career at Akademeia High School.

We consistently respond to our students’ growing educational needs, ensuring they maximise their potential through wise iGCSE and A Level subject choices, and through ambitious and appropriate university applications.

At Akademeia High School each student is accompanied on his or her educational journey by a mentor. Our mentors support their students’ learning, inspire and guide their individual pursuits, and advise on their academic choices, both at subject level for iGCSE and A Level, and throughout the university application process.

Mentors lead their students to ask and answer vital questions about themselves, helping them to make informed, life-shaping decisions. This process is naturally conducted in close association with a student’s parents, to ensure a constructive and fruitful dialogue that will create the framework to help each student flourish.

Student community

A vital aspect of a successful school is its student body. Academic ability and motivation are important, and also significant is a diversity of talents and interests.

We attract both science students who wish to focus on understanding the world, as well as those interested in social issues who want to change the world. A significant proportion of our students are pursuing their passion in the arts – both visual and performative. We have students who live in Warsaw and those who are from further afield. At least a quarter of our students qualify for scholarships that enable those from diverse backgrounds to study at the school.

Our students meet and work together through various school activities that are often cross-year in scope. They inspire one another and help one another see the world from differing perspectives. Because Akademeia High School has a maximum capacity of about 300, our students get to know the faculty and one other well, and they find others in their cohort with whom they can realize various projects and plans.

The house system

Students at Akademeia High School work in communities called houses.

The houses, modeled off of similar systems in British secondary schools, are an excellent and proven way to build a spirit of healthy competition, stimulate creativity and foster relationships between students. Students gain experience communicating in groups, run democratic elections and learn to be active and committed members of society.

The demands placed upon the student groups in the houses help them to develop a range of skills. For example, preparation for theater projects teaches teamwork and helps students gain confidence in public speaking. Charitable initiatives provide an opportunity to develop social awareness and empathy. Study trips and meetings with interesting figures arouse passions, and prove that there is more joy to be had when studies and work are coupled with commitment.
