Remember that due to the recent reform of the education system in Poland, middle (or junior high) schools were eliminated, and in 2019 had their last graduates. Some of these schools were transformed into new primary schools, some into new high schools, while some were incorporated into pre-existing primary schools, and others incorporated into secondary schools.

Non-public schools in Wrocław

Public and non-public schools operate in most of the 48 housing estates of Wrocław (there are no "districts" in this city), such as the Old Town, Śródmieście, Gądów, Krzyki, and Psie Pole, as well as in the surrounding towns of Oleśnica, Oława, Trzebnica, and Środa Śląska.

Non-public schools in Wrocław provide the highest quality education. Some of them offer only one stage of education, while others provide the entire educational cycle from kindergarten (and even nursery) to the final exams in high school. Many parents enjoy the latter option, because children are educated in a place that uses a uniform, coherent approach to education through all stages of learning. Others prefer their children learn about different systems and have a wider educational experience, acquired from different schools.

Types of non-public schools in Wrocław

When choosing a non-public school for your child, it’s worth considering what kind of education you want to provide them with. Schools differ in their programs, focuses, philosophies, etc.—with lots of variety. These are the main types of schools in Wrocław.

Benefits and advantages of non-public schools in Wrocław

Here is what we can expect from non-public schools in Wrocław:

High level of education: Wrocław non-public schools are known for their high level of education. Many schools have world-renowned programs and courses, such as Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB), and are authorized by professional associations and organizations such as the IB, Council of International Schools in Europe, New England Association of Schools and Colleges, and Council of International British Schools. This ensures the highest educational standards are met.

Individual approach: in addition to educating children in basic subjects, such as math, computer science, physics, biology, geography, art, ethics, and others, private schools also focus on overall development. They teach soft skills, including the art of communication, argumentation, teamwork skills, as well as fostering natural scientific, artistic, and sporting interests. Many schools offer individualized curricula for particularly gifted children and children with disabilities.

Small classes: private schools have small classes and low student-to-teacher ratios. This can make teaching more effective, allowing for more individualized teaching and support. Smaller classes can also make kids more comfortable in the learning environment, and make for smoother interaction between teachers and students.

Additional support: psychological and/or speech therapist support is provided in many schools—such staff are often employed full-time, so they’re always present and available to students and teachers. In addition, schools offer support children who require more work, through tutoring or individual sessions.

International environment: many private schools in Wrocław are international and bilingual, offering an extended program of language learning. This makes them a natural place for children from different parts of the world: in addition to Poles, kids from Canada, the US, Great Britain, France, Germany, China, Japan, and Korea study in them. Learning and being with peers from different parts of the world is a great experience for a child and an opportunity to learn about other cultures, habits, and ways of thinking.

Intensive language learning: Wrocław private schools offer advanced language learning programs, and in some of them a foreign language (mainly English) is the language of instruction. In bilingual schools or schools with bilingual classes, teaching is conducted in two languages—Polish and usually English, although they may also teach in another modern language. Many schools offer comprehensive language courses, such as French, German, Greek, Spanish, Japanese, and Korean. A popular method of learning a language is the method of language immersion.

Good equipment: private schools in Wrocław have the latest equipment and great resources. Lessons are conducted in accordance with the latest trends in pedagogy, where the use of information and communication techniques (ICT) is something natural, and children can participate in the implementation of interesting experiments and scientific projects.

Extracurricular activities: non-public schools offer an extremely wide range of different types of extracurricular activities, the cost of which is usually included in tuition fees. Students often have at their disposal playgrounds, gyms, theatres, concert halls, school film studios, and more. This ensures not only appealing leisure time, but gives students the opportunity to develop their interests and talents, and it strengthens the desire to learn.

Traveling abroad: many private schools in Wrocław cooperate with schools from other countries, such as Britain, France, Spain, Italy, and Germany. This involves student exchanges and trips to other countries, which can really broaden a student’s horizons.

Wrocław culture: Wrocław, whose history dates back to the 10th century, is a beautiful city located on the Oder and its four tributaries. It’s a city of 12 islands and 112 bridges and is sometimes called the "Venice of the North." In 2016, Wrocław, together with the Spanish city of Donostia-San Sebastián, held the prestigious title of European Capital of Culture. Wrocław is a valued academic center, where students study at 28 universities, 8 of which are state-run. Schools in Wrocław use this cultural wealth, and in their extracurricular activities offer many options for joint outings to theaters, galleries, cultural events, as well as city tours and learning about the fascinating history and priceless monuments of Wrocław. The city is culturally diverse and well connected with other regions of Poland and European countries. In foreign students, this can trigger the desire to explore a new country, including others in Europe.
