Vadim Moshkovich - Russian entrepreneur and philanthropist, founder and the main shareholder of one of Russia's largest agricultural companies. Vadim is a member of the Board of Trustees of the National Research University Higher School of Economics and of Belgorod State University. Two of his children study at Stanford University, in the United States.
Letovo School is Vadim Moshkovich’s main philanthropic project, which was first initiated in 2008. Answering the question about the origins of his interest in education, Vadim Moshkovich refers to his own school experience. He graduated from a top Mathematics school and later from the Technological University of Moscow. This determined a lot in his life: "The need to constantly move forward, to develop, to learn something new brought me profound respect for educational institutions and understanding that education is the basic life value."
Led by Vadim Moshkovich, the management team studied the best practices of top schools in Russia, the United States, Great Britain, Singapore, Finland and China and personally visited many of them. Thorough research revealed key features that determine success, allowing the school to crystalize this vision: The custodian of knowledge should become the school itself, and not a specific teacher. The loss of even the most talented teacher cannot lead to a deterioration in the quality of education. In addition, thanks to feedback from students, teachers and parents, the school is constantly improving and developing, without losing its uniqueness.
Vadim Moshkovich aims to create a school of the highest educational level, but most importantly, he dreams of making Letovo a beloved and happy part of every student's life, forming a strong identity of graduates who feel proud of being a part of a powerful, engaging and bonded community.
