  • School of Russian Language, Literature and Arts was founded in 2009.

    Our main goals are:

    • to help children from Russian-speaking families maintain and improve their knowledge of the Russian language;

    • to familiarize them with great works of the Russian writers and poets, composers and artists;

    • to help them learn and understand Russian cultural traditions;

    • to offer them a safe and stimulating environment where they can freely communicate with each other and enjoy the learning process.

    All instructions are conducted in Russian by teachers who are native speakers of the Russian language. Our teachers are highly qualified with strong academic background and teaching experience.

    In our School we do not limit ourselves to one teaching approach but combine the best methods of Russian and American educational systems to get better results. We also believe that each student is unique and progresses at his/her own pace.
