Every day, children spend time exploring the surrounding forest and park, spend a lot of time outdoors. The school has a large program of lectures from invited guests, which offers students the opportunity to expand their horizons.

Leadership training is a central part of learning. Children are engaged in orienteering, mountaineering, building a tourist camp, canoeing and mountain walks, there is the opportunity to join the annual expeditions.

Many concerts take place, the school choir performs at the Christmas service and sings in the local church for students and parents every Sunday. In addition to large concerts for performers, mini-performances are held at the school throughout the year. Two-thirds of schoolchildren play at least one musical instrument, and you can learn to play the game on almost any instrument.

The highlight of the fall semester is the acclaimed annual school production, which can compete with any preparatory or even high school in the country. The production is attended by the vast majority of students. For example, in 2017, 98% of students participated in the play “The Wizard of Oz”, they played on stage or were busy working on the technical part.

Children can take classes at LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Theatre Arts) and take exams (optional). This is a program for those who want to immerse themselves in the world of acting, learn to speak in verse and prose, strengthen confidence in their voice and increase their knowledge of literature, poetry and drama. Classes are conducted by an invited professional teacher.

An art studio is a fascinating place used for classes and extracurricular activities. Each project created by children is considered from the point of view of art theory. The training program includes drawing, painting, collage, ceramics, modelling and sculpture. Artistic trends are studied: impressionism, Fauvism, surrealism, cubism and abstract expressionism, as well as a number of techniques that encourage experimentation leading to the development of an individual style. The Internet is used to receive information, and the iPad is an essential tool for presentations related to the history of art movements.

Students in their free time can use the art studio for individual lessons, preparation for competitions and events. Potential scholarship holders can use the school’s capabilities unlimitedly to prepare their portfolios.

The school holds a number of competitions, including photography. Students' works are exhibited at and outside the school. One selected work of art created by students is auctioned annually to raise funds for a charity.
