In individual, well-justified cases, we allow the possibility of a different arrangement of subjects, but this requires the consent of the school management. Although we offer these 18 paths, we cannot guarantee that every year each of them will be accomplished. It happens when too few people sign up for a certain course. Four people is the minimum number of  students required to form a group by the school. If there are fewer people enrolled on a course, we may offer to start it in a small group mode, but for an additional monthly fee to the tuition. If the parent decides not to do so, we will not run the course, which in some cases may also mean that we will not run the path. 

All subjects (except for Polish and foreign languages) in classes DP1 and DP2 are taught in English. 

Students prepare for the International Baccalaureate in 6 selected subjects – 3 at the higher level and 3 at the basic level. In individual, well-justified cases, we allow the possibility of an additional seventh subjects, as well as the implementation of four subjects at a higher level.
