Russian curriculum

While we may be an international school, we believe it is important for students to have the option to study the Russian State curriculum. Students studying with us therefore have the option to get Russian education subjects with experienced Russian teachers and eventually take the Russian State Unified National Exams at the end of their time at school.

Please note that the Cambridge programme students start school at age 5 and in the Russian State programme children start at age 7. This means that the Russian State education is only available from Year 3 onwards. It also means that our Year 3 is for children at the same age as those in Year 1 in Russian state schools, Year 4 is for at the same age as those in Year 2 in Russian state schools, etc.

Tests and exams

At the end of Russian Grade 9 (our Year 11), students take exams in math, Russian and 2 more optional exams to receive the Russian State Certificate of Basic General Education.

At the end of Russian Grade 11 (our Year 13) students take the Unified National Examinations (EGE) in maths, Russian, and in other subjects. The preparation for these exams is both individual and in groups. Once students receive their graduation certificates they can apply for admission to Russian state universities.
