About the school

Our mission is to develop the unique abilities of all students and help them grow into open and confident individuals. We understand that true education goes beyond academics and involves discovering and developing specific interests and talents.

Our educational philosophy is based on an individual approach, which aims to help all students reach their optimum potential. At the core of our approach is caring for students’ mental well-being and developing empathy and mutual respect.

We promote a holistic approach to student development so that respect, caring and courtesy become ideals for students to live out at the same time.

At Livingston High School we promote an international mindset. In a world that is increasingly connected, it is essential to instil in students a global perspective and teach them to succeed in the international market.

Our goal is to raise our students into responsible, globally aware citizens who will be able to comprehensively perceive the cultures of the entire world.

Livingston Gymnasium is an IB Candidate School

Livingston Grammar School is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. We are seeking authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools are schools that share a common philosophy – a commitment to high quality, international education that challenges students. At Livingston Grammar School, we believe that this is the kind of education that is important for our students.

At the heart of the IB Diploma Programme is the IB Learner Profile, which we have incorporated into our student profile. The student profile describes a wide range of human abilities and responsibilities that go beyond academic endeavors. It brings upon us a commitment to help all members of our school community learn to respect themselves, others and the world around them.

Group 1 – Study of Language and Literature Czech
Group 2 – Language Acquisition

In addition to the subject groups, students learn the basics of IB, which consists of the following subjects:

Theory of Knowledge – In this course, students reflect on the nature of knowledge and how we know what we claim to know.

Creativity, Activity, Service – in which students perform and engage in activities related to each of the three strands.
