Azat Mitk ("Free Consciousness")

A small private school with classes of 6–7 students, in which each student is given as much time as he needs to fully understand the subject. At the same time, grades are not given, since a clear feedback system from teachers has been built, and children learn to evaluate their knowledge independently and determine their weak and strong points. Discipline does not suffer from this. Despite the fact that the education is 9 grades, teachers can prepare for passing both the OGE and the Unified State Exam, IB and Foundation. Homework is done at school, and on weekends they attend clubs, for example, “Young Millionaire”, or training in the martial art of kendo. Here they pay great attention to the health of children: they study on Tamagotchi chairs to maintain their posture. And another plus and distinctive feature of Azat Mitk is that school supplies are provided by the educational institution itself. The cost of training is 220,000 drams per month. Children from Russia go here and receive Moscow school certificates. And local students or from other countries can receive additional education at Azat Mitk.

"Mkhitar Sebastatsi"

The Armenian school “Mkhitar Sebastatsi” differs from the others in this selection in that it does not open Russian-language classes. How did she get into our review? The fact is that the school’s methodologists have developed a special program for the adaptation of Russian speakers. Children organically immerse themselves in the Armenian language environment without experiencing stress. Upon enrollment, the student’s area of interest is learned and an individual work plan is drawn up. Teachers and classmates help them during lessons, and free Armenian courses are organized after classes. If difficulties arise, you can talk to a tutor or psychologist. Newcomers here quickly make local friends, even among high school students who run the Adaptation Laboratory. In this school, children feel free, because there are no long narrow corridors, the spaces are spacious and bright; it is a suitable place to apply the latest educational technologies. Excursions and tent camps are organized here, and children participate in international competitions abroad. If you want your child to study remotely, then an individual program will be drawn up for him and he will be given access to a personal blog. Tuition fees: grades 1–5 – 20,000 drams per month, grades 6–12 – 35,000 drams per month.
