Central to your child's school experience is the underlying curriculum taught in the classroom. "Curriculum" refers to both what is taught and how it's taught. When considering the different curricula outlined in the next few pages, keep in mind that few schools fall neatly into one category or another. Most schools' curricula comprise a blend of best practices drawn from multiple curriculum types. Having said that, most schools do have a general overall curriculum type. These are identified for each school on OurKids.net.
Primary Curriculum: Traditional
Traditional curricula tend to be very content-based and rooted in the core disciplines. It is a structured approach that involves the teacher delivering a unified curriculum through direct instruction. Uczniowie najpierw zdobywają wiedzę podstawową i teoretyczną, aby później stosować ją w praktyce. Students usually learn by observing and listening to their teacher, studying facts and concepts in textbooks, and completing both tests and written assignments - which challenge students to not only demonstrate their mastery of content but their ability to analyze and deconstruct it critically. Class discussions are also used to create critical dialogue around the content of the curriculum.
Secondary Curriculum: Polish Curriculum (Ministry of National Eduction, MEN)

Curriculum Pace approach at ZSSTO Białystok : Standard
ZSSTO Białystok has a Standard approach to Curriculum Pace (as opposed to Accelerated, Student-paced approach).
[Show: About Standard?]
Broadly-speaking, the main curriculum -- like that of most schools -- paces the provincially-outlined one. This pace is steady and set by the teachers and school. The curriculum might still be enriched in various ways: covering topics more in-depth and with more vigor than the provincial one, or covering a broader selection of topics.

Academic Culture approach at ZSSTO Białystok : Supportive
ZSSTO Białystok has a Supportive approach to Academic Culture (as opposed to Rigorous approach).
[Show: About Supportive?]
A school with a "supportive" academic culture focuses more on process than short-term outcomes: academic performance is a welcomed side-benefit, but not the driving focus. This does not mean the school lacks standards, or has low expectations for its students: a school can have a supportive academic culture and still light the fire of ambition in its students. It does mean, however, that the school provides a less intensive culture than schools with a "rigorous" academic classification, and is focused more simply on instilling a love of learning and life-long curiosity.
What ZSSTO Białystok says: We are a "school without bells". The school has a unique atmosphere. Here the students feel at home because they can do what they really want. As part of our teaching duties, we implement the core curriculum of general education as a necessary condition for ensuring the rights of a public school.
What ZSSTO Białystok says about their special need support: The school offers a wide range of remedial classes in mathematics, Polish, English, physics, chemistry and biology, which are offered to students who have learning difficulties.
Learning strategy and study counselling; habit formation
Extra support and minor accommodations for children experiencing subclinical difficulties
Mild but clinically diagnosed ADHD:
Support for moderate-to-severe special needs:
Formal adjustments are made to the delivery of lessons to help mitigate the learning difficulty or exceptionality. The underlying content and expectations remain unchanged with accommodations, however. (Example: allowing a student to write tests in a quieter room).
The underlying content and expectations are modified and/or simplified for the sake of the student. (Examples: allowing student to use a calculator on a test when other students can’t; allowing students to bring word-banks or “cheat sheets” into certain tests, etc)
Research-based therapeutic measures that target and ameliorate the underlying weakness.

a) fee for the first child - PLN 690;
b) fee for the second child - PLN 621 (10% discount);
c) fee for the third and subsequent child - PLN 552 (20% discount).
Our school is to be a place where, in addition to the subject knowledge, students will gain the ability to cope with life. They will be successful in every field, and will humbly treat failures as a science for further development. We will strive to maintain a very high level of education throughout the entire period of education (from kindergarten to middle school) based on fundamental values. We will continue to raise the qualifications of the teaching staff, improve learning conditions, develop useful skills, maintain a high level of safety, develop students' passions and talents in a favorable working and learning atmosphere, as well as mutual understanding and cooperation between teachers and parents.
We know the port we want to get to. Our students will be able to sail from this port into the wide waters and catch favorable winds.
Each of OUR STUDENTS does SOMETHING well. There is SOMETHING good in everyone. We will help you discover and develop SOMETHING. We are talent seekers.
