Eight-year Grammar School

The PRIGO Medical and Science Grammar School is a secondary school which initiated its activity in 1994.
The school provides education in the eight-year and four-year Grammar School.

Eight-year Grammar School – Grammar School programme 79-41-K/81

The programme of general eight-year Grammar School enjoys the advantages of studying at a multi-year Grammar School that focuses on gifted students and their preparation which is more comprehensive, continuous and long-term than in the case of typical four-year Grammar Schools. Multi-year high schools also benefit from the synergies and transfer of experience among different age groups of children and students. Eight-year Grammar Schools are usually applied for by more gifted and able pupils of primary schools, who usually stand out among their peers in the class. The admission procedure for talented children is not so stressful as in the case of four-year Grammar Schools because if they fail, they still have an option of applying for the six-year or four-year Grammar Schools.

The curriculum and the school educational programme can be downloaded here (available in the Czech language only).
