The school complex in Nagornoe, Moscow corresponds to the basic principles of a campus style type of school.

A vast compound in the heart of the village of Nagornoe, Moscow offers all the amenities of a modern and innovative school. Great value is placed on rooms that are properly equipped to develop and promote healthy learning behaviors.

Inspiration Europe: We have chosen Peter the Great, the most important czar and modernizer of Europe, as seminal leader and role model for our school as he resembles this idea best. European standards have been integrated into many areas of the curriculum, which is necessary to enable the school´s transition towards becoming a certified European school as well as for the international recognition of the secondary school degrees. In this way, continuing and further international education at European universities is secured.

Renowned Austrian educational experts are the most important partners of the school. Together with the Russian executive team, they have put together a school concept that guarantees the above-mentioned results.
