Medical and Science Grammar School PRIGO PRAGUE
The essential and key task of our Grammar School is to provide our students with successful professional life through their education and preparation for the school-leaving exam or further studies at a university. The most important aspect, though, is to promote their balanced development through an appropriate combination of scholastic and extracurricular educational activities. You can find applicants for medical, veterinary or pharmaceutical branches among our students. We develop these students’ qualifications for further studies. Nonetheless, we respect general scope of high school education with emphasis on foreign languages and globalised environment. Our intention is to especially develop the talents and skills of our gifted students who are interested in studying humanities, aiming to find their appropriate specialisation, for which we employ our trained teachers and psychologists.
“The quality of each school is determined by the quality of its students. And the quality of the students is mostly determined by the erudition of their teachers.” We then value our teachers who form a stable and committed team. We focus on creating the conditions for the teaching staff, material support and personal development. This allows qualified teachers to be selected only from among the best high-school teachers through demanding selection procedures. Our teachers are regularly evaluated in terms of their professional competence, methods of transferring their knowledge and their social skills by the Grammar School´s management as well as the students themselves. The students’ results in the university entrance examinations and the school-leaving exams also constitute an important objective evaluation criterion.
Personal approach is one of the priorities of the PriorityGO concept that we apply to all our schools. Based on the interconnection within the group of PRIGO schools and because it covers all levels of education, we have a unique opportunity to offer our students being engaged in the new BuddyGO system, which moves the meaning of ‘personal approach’ to the next level. Targeted mentoring connects different levels of education in the group of PRIGO schools. This way, our students develop the today’s highly valued qualities, such as responsibility and activity on the mentor-side and easier integration on the mentoree-side.
New school, new environment, new schoolmates and new teachers – we take our personal approach really seriously. We’ll find a Buddy from a higher educational level for every student. Your Buddy will guide you through the school, give you a tip on interesting school events and become your team mate. Loneliness will never trouble you. You’ll make a successful team with your Buddy, and you may represent your school at various events. You’ll also be a team of two friends who help each other.
Mentoring at the Grammar School is especially important at the very beginning of studies, before the students find their way and create their own school social group. An experienced Buddy already knows the school system perfectly and is well informed about the school and extracurricular activities. New students can contact their Buddy, whose experience they can rely on during the difficult transition period. All they need to do is to write an e-mail or text on Messenger and so they always have exactly the information they need.

Since 2017 the school has been taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award (DofE). The programme’s goal is to support young people aged 14–24 in their comprehensive development of skills and abilities through long-term and regular activities in four interrelated areas: talent development, sports, volunteering and adventure expeditions at three levels. Upon the programme’s completion, the participants can receive an internationally recognised DofE certificate. You can find out more about the DofE project here.
PRIGO collaborates with over 20 foreign schools from the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Austria, USA and China (click here). The international exchange of students and teachers makes one’s acquisition of skills faster. Our students’ education has therefore an international dimension. Both students and teachers are offered short-term and long-term study or work visits.
