The School of Young Politicians (SYP-1306) is a Russian state school located in the Western administrative district of Moscow, Russia. It is currently one of the first state schools in Eastern Europe to conduct the IB continuum programme alongside the national curriculum. The students have a rare opportunity to receive two Diplomas, both IB and Russian.
The students, aged between 3-17, are children from 44 nationalities. This fact provides for a very international environment that ensures cultural diversity and an ethos of tolerance as well as open-mindedness beneficial to the educational process.
The school sees its mission as raising holistic life-long learners who care about the world around them. Therefore we offer a wide range of subjects and rigorous assessment as well as a huge variety of extra-curriculum activities such as choir, ballroom dancing, sport dancing, drama classes in English and Russian, robotechnics as well as many others. The school also offers many unique activities as monthly meetings with distinguished people who have achieved public recognition in various fields of life - writers, musicians, philosophers, sportsman, entrepreneurs etc.
During its seventeen years the school has been nominated for numerous awards and prizes. A recent special independent survey published in Tatler magazine named our school "unique". It offers a happy, productive environment for children to learn.
