Vytautas Magnus University Classic Education School
Vytautas Magnus University Classic Education School – MC provides pre-school, pre-primary, primary and lower secondary education.
Our school builds its activities on the basis of the Lithuanian Education Strategy 2013 – 2020 as well as on the State Progress Strategy “Lithuania 2030’’. These are the main documents describing the goals our country is striving to achieve.
The mission of the school is to provide learners with the safe environment and engaging learning conditions for children aged 2 to 16 from and around the city of Kaunas. Its aim is to ensure opportunities for every student to seek personal progress and better learning results. It also aims children to gain life-long learning competences while paying attention to civil, social and cultural development of their personalities. Very big attention is given to recognition of gifted students as well as students with special educational need and development of their individual skills. The school uses a lot of innovative technologies: iMO learn cubes, robots Dash and Dot, interactive smart flat panels, smart whiteboards, LaQ constructor, interactive floor and other. These technologies have a big impact on students’ performance and creativity.
Children with special educational needs are integrated into the school-life. There is provided support by psychologist, speech therapist, teacher assistants, social and special educators.
After the lessons all students are consulted by the teachers in all subjects.
