In the same year, as a consequence of the reform of educational system middle school (gimnazjum) No. 12 was established.

The atmosphere in our schools is fantastic. Pupils and parents eagerly participate in school ceremonies and events. Family picnics are our tradition. In 2011 the picnic was linked with the school reunion during which we celebrated 20th anniversary of our schools. Students can stay at school after class, to spend time with each other. We offer them movie nights, poetry nights and performances. We also Halloween, St Andrew's day and Carnival Balls.
Pupils learn in well equipped classrooms with interactive tables, computers with the Internet access and overhead projectors. In modern computer rooms not only can they have ICT classes but also study other subjects. Project work is one of the forms of gaining knowledge, learning skills and teamwork are our everyday life. One of our projects is the annual project People Who Changed The World. Coherent system of evaluation encourages students to extend and consolidate their knowledge. A small number of pupils in each class and even smaller groups during foreign language lessons ensure individual contact with teachers, which guarantees best work results.
Tutorial program and education in our schools are geared to individualisation. Science in our schools is not only lessons in a very well equipped classrooms. Teachers work with students during special interest workshops. Working with projects as a method of acquiring knowledge, practical skills and teamwork is our everyday life. One of our projects is an annual project of the People who have changed the world. The consistent rating system encourages students to enhance and preservation of knowledge. Personal contact with the teacher helps them to achieve maximum results. In addition, small classes and lessons divided into groups to give everyone the opportunity to utilize their potential.

Under the foundations of entrepreneurship students middle school and high school, they lead their own Club Café. During breaks and during evening events you can eat and drink, whatever you feel like. Extracurricular activities and lessons conducted outside school also help to expand acquired knowledge and language skills. As the part of entrepreneurship program students of middle and high schools run their own café in the school club. During the breaks and evening events one can have a drink of fruit juice and a snack.
These days no one can function in the labour market without cooperative and language skills thus all our students study at least two foreign languages beginning with compulsory English at the beginning of their education as early as kindergarten and then can choose between French, German, Russian and Spanish. And no one is astonished when high school students learn four foreign languages. In our middle school some subjects are taught bilingually which enables fluency in the future.

The Program of PE in our school also includes swimming lessons, and corrective gymnastics. We have our own gymnasium and swimming pool, plus we use a large sports hall and a swimming pool in the ICDS.
