Жага до знань
Striving for knowledge

We share the opinion of the leading world experts in the area of education that critical thinking, creativity, communicative skills and the ability to work in teams are future basic competencies that the students of the school of the future should develop.

Our priority is learning through the practical research and project activities with an emphasis on the ability to set and solve life tasks understanding personal goals: "Why do I need it?" and "How can I use it?"

Our aims are to teach our students to ask proper questions, critically assess information, form their own opinion, be independent from external evaluations and actions, be able to regulate their behavior independently and be responsible for it, be adaptive, cooperate and communicate effectively.

Our tools are comfortable psycho-emotional environment for learning; clear, accessible, live teaching methods; kids involvement in lessons preparation; educational projects development and volunteering; focus on both process and result.

Our mission

Primus Inter Pares School creates an open educational space where in the atmosphere of safety and acceptance the child naturally develops the thirst for knowledge and the ability of self-determination in the changing world.

Our main desire is to inspire the students to find their calling, help them develop their skills which are necessary for successful adulthood, and teach them to be the conscious creators of their future. This will be the key to the formation of a personality that is aware of their own abilities and needs and is able to use the obtained knowledge consistently in order to lead a healthy, productive, self-fulfilling life and win in a competitive environment.

This can be expressed via the concept:
Наша місія
Philosophy of Primus Inter Pares School

The philosophy of our school is based on deep understanding of the fact that no genius can fully master a huge amount of knowledge and information accumulated by the mankind over the time of its existence. Moreover, the tremendous speed of science and new technologies development leads to the need to update the curriculum of the most innovative schools and universities in the world almost monthly.

In the context of global hypercompetitive environment, the school must ensure the harmonious development of the child's personality and the ecological attitude to his/her psyche. The emphasis only on academic knowledge is not a guarantee of a full happy life any more. We must help children to form the main factors of vitality – self-esteem, purposefulness, self-motivation, self-organization, the ability to think effectively and navigate in the endless stream of information of the modern rapidly changing world.

Having skills of vitality, understanding the basic laws of world order, knowing the principles of effective cooperation with other people and the ability to find something that inspires, strengthens and develops the personality, will give the children the opportunity to find themselves and their way in life.

The name of our school contains an ancient Latin phrase – Primus Inter Pares – the first among equals. We rethought this expression in the context of modernity and expressed it graphically through the number π using mathematics as the global language of the Universe.

The unique combination of the number π (~ 3.14) fundamental permanence and the establishment process infinity of the sequence of numbers after the comma symbolizes for us the human nature essence.

Is there the end to this knowledge? Each child at Primus Inter Pares School will have the opportunity to understand how to find their "number π", in other words, the children will determine for themselves how many "numbers after the comma" they want to learn, realizing that only they are responsible for knowledge about the world comprehension depth.

We are all alike and each of us is unique.

Primus Inter Pares School Team
A team of those who successfully combine responsible parenting and active self-realization have created Primus Inter Pares School. We have our own experience and feel the need for a new approach to education and teaching. We, inspired by love to children and the examples of the best schools in the world, know what needs to be changed and how to do it. Moreover, we understand the importance of the mission chosen, making the dream of a school, where we create a happy future for each child and society as a whole come true.
