When moving to Armenia with school-age children, the question of education arises. We will tell you how and in which educational institutions to enter

general information

There are three levels of education in the Republic of Armenia: grades 1-4; grades 5–9; 10-12 grade. General education begins at the age of seven (when it is reached before the end of December of the given academic year).

From the second grade Armenians are taught the Russian language (in Russian classes - throughout their studies), in the third grade English is added. The compulsory subjects are chess,

Evaluation takes place on a 10-point system. In the fourth grade, knowledge is tested in the form of oral answers and tests, and exams are taken in grades 9 and 12.
