The General Education Department within the Combined Programme in Savremena Gimnazija represents a quality combination of the National and Cambridge programmes, which greatly facilitates the process of learning and acquiring new skills and knowledge for students.

This department offers a general, secondary education, which is complemented by subjects such as Philosophy, Logic, Latin, Psychology, Sociology, and the Constitution and Civil Rights. On the other hand, the holistic approach to education is further refined with additional classes, conducted in English and according to the official Cambridge programme. With bilingual education, students have the opportunity to get the best possible education from both education systems.

General Education Department: A perfect combination of the national system and systems of Western European countries and the USA

Through a set of carefully selected subjects from the National and Cambridge International Programme, we present our students with an ambitious and high-quality curriculum.

The National Programme is based on the official curriculum valid in the Republic of Serbia, but it has been supplemented and improved with advanced methodology so that our students receive the highest quality and most modern education possible.

Additional Cambridge subjects were introduced with the idea of introducing students to the concept of education that is applied in Western European countries and the USA, which differs in its goals and outcomes from the Serbian concept of education. Thus, after having classes conducted only in Serbian, our students can attend classes conducted in English in the afternoon hours.

Such a teaching approach encourages creative thinking and it fine-tunes the students’ capacity to analyse and synthesise what they have learned, which is a skill they will need not just in academia but in life in general to ensure a secure and successful academic future.

A combined degree that opens the door to prestigious universities in the country and abroad

The advantage of a combined degree, National and International, is a good stepping stone for the students of the General Education Department in Savremena Gimnazija when it comes to continuing their education.

Students who graduate from this department are at a special advantage compared to their peers, considering that with their education and classes conducted in Serbian and English, the knowledge they acquired, and the diplomas they obtained, they prepared in the best possible way to enrol at universities in Serbia and abroad. All the doors are open to them.

In addition, we have agreements with private faculties in Serbia regarding our students having a firm advantage over their peers when it comes to enrolling at their faculty. Students who graduate from Savremena Gimnazija have the right to enrol directly at the Information Technology School (ITS), as well as at the Faculty of Contemporary Arts (FSU), which are part of our educational system.

I am extremely pleased and proud to be the parent of a Savremena student. During my first encounter with the school management, when I asked about my child’s potential enrolment, I saw how much love, enthusiasm and professionalism you put in your work. I was impressed by your approach, ideas and methods. I couldn’t believe something like this existed in our country! It doesn’t take long to realise that this is a school you would recommend to everyone. Creativity, modern technology, top-quality education, and most of all, the humaneness that can be seen throughout the school, make it truly different and worthy of its name – Savremena Gimnazija. With such an approach, the success of this school and, consequently, our children’s success, is unavoidable. Congratulations! Jelena Đorđević, Andrija’s mum
