Points of Pride
One of the focus areas at "Letovo" is the pedagogical, psychological and organizational support for children participating in various academic competitions.
Members of the teaching staff at “Letovo” are authors of popular courses, articles and books, and they are involved in academic competitions as organizers, task drafters, examiners and of course, tutors.
Our students have already been successful at winning competitions at all levels, including at international level.
IB DP students showed high results at the SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test), an exam for admission to US universities. Scores of 16 students in 2019/20 academic year hit the top results in the entire history of the SAT.
In addition to our 76 students, 142 schoolchildren from 20 countries took the SAT exam at Letovo this year.
International achievements of Letovo students
Results at the Russian Olympiads and other academic competitions
In 2019/2020 Letovo had 32 prize-winners and 146 winners at the regional round. The final round of the All-Russian Olympiad was not held due to the epidemiological situation, and, according to the results of the regional round, Letovo was included in the top 3 schools in Moscow.
Our students also did extremely well at other Russian tournaments and competitions such as the Moscow Olympiad of School Students, the Vysshaya Proba Olympiad, mathematical regattas, economic festivals and other Olympiads (the Siberiade, the Kantorovich Olympiad), numerous hackathons, competitive programming Olympiads, astronomy tournament as well as the Lomonosov and Archimedes tournaments.
Achievements in Sports
In the second academic year 6 performances were staged, 8 concerts of classical and rock music, several jam sessions and an online “quarantine concert” that completed the music program of the year were held.
More than 130 students took individual music classes: piano and guitar, violin and flute, drums, and even saxophone.
In addition, Letovo also helps students prepare for TOEFL and IELTS English language exams.
In the questionnaire, one of the nine groups of questions is dedicated to Feelings about school. The average figure for all schools subjected to the PASS survey is 61%.
For the first time, the questionnaire survey took place at the end of the 2018/19 academic year, as the method suggests, without warning that the level of “school happiness” would be measured. Letovo students answered a number of questions including how they felt at school and what feelings they had toward it in general, how they evaluated their own study results, how satisfied they were with the organisation of the learning process and with relationships with other students and teachers. The result was 91.1%. In 2019/2020 Letovo conducted this survey again.
