Elementary schools

Reasons for choosing a DSA elementary school

Our philosophy is to create a creative environment for students to learn the language, the basics of thinking and build the relationship with technology, which they can later use during their studies in high school or university.

We teach children express themselves, go straight, discuss or tolerate their behaviour. The parent is a partner for us, their opinion is important for us. We haven’t only found the school for children, but we’ve also found the school with children.
