The high school’s history dates back almost 400 years ago, when the Saint Sava old monastery, in the University Square, Bucharest, became Romania’ s first higher-education institution. Today they are proud to hold the first position regarding the students’ admission in the national ranking for the 7th year in a row. There are 65 distinguished teachers, who educate up to 1000 students, organized in 34 classes, the majority of which are Mathematics-IT. There are also classes of humanistic studies and natural science. The students are dedicated and highly motivated to succeed in life and thus they are willing to participate in many national and international contests in all school subjects. In 2022, 180 students qualified and got prizes at the National Olympiads and Contests and 27 students received distinctions and prizes at International level in Chemistry, Geography, Philosophy, Biology, Latin, Astronomy and Astrophysics, Linguistic, Space Settlement Design Contest and 23rd Annual HolocaustArt & Writing Contest
The curriculum includes one hour per week Art class: Musical Education and Visual Education only for the first two years of high school. The school supplements the students need for artististic development with the different clubs (SavArt, Drama Club Thalia, Debate Club, School Choir) and many extracurricular activities ( participation in Sorento International Francophone Theatre Festival, Italy, Thematic Exibitions, volunteering activities, Christmas and Easter shows, GeoQuiz, etc.)
As the world is constantly changes, schools need to keep up with students needs and interests to develop harmoniously, not only from an academic point of view, but from a holistic perpective of education. It is the teachers’ duty to support children in developing transversal competencies such as citizenship, collaboration, multilingualism, digital technology and the common values of freedom, tolerance and non-discrimination through education in an innovative learning experience in the form of a cultural product.
The students involved in the project are between 15-17 years old, in the 9th (most of them), 10th (five students) and 11th grade (one student). They are passionate about drama and theatre, history and literature. They have good communication skills and have a good command of English.
