The speciality of our study system is period study: the study year
is divided into 5 periods (a' 35 days), in every period each student
has only 6-7 subjects. All subjects have been divided into 35-lesson
courses. As students have less subjects in one period, it makes
the study process more intensive. The study groups of the lines
are formed according to the students choise, compulsory courses
take place by the whole class.
The school offers optional subjects set, which together with obligatory
subjects make up one study line (program).Our school offers 6 study
lines: humanities, social sciences, natural sciences,sciences, info

organise the schoolwork. AXEL forms schedule for each student contains

of students grades and teachers plans for courses.
