Vidak Pejović

History teacher Vidak Pejović graduated from Belgrade’s Faculty of Philosophy, where he also earned an MA in medieval history. He has taught at several private and public primary and secondary schools. He wrote a number of research papers presented at international conferences, with an emphasis on the research of students’ level of interest and knowledge about the conflicts in the ex-Yu region.

At Savremena, Vidak would like to develop students’ critical thinking, and help them understand history, the magistra vitae, as a science. Utilising modern technology, he strives to introduce them to different epochs, and the causes and consequences of various events and processes.

He is a recreational sportsman, and passionate about books, nature and travel.

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
Contemporary in any sense of the word, our school offers functional knowledge and quality preparation for tertiary education in Serbia and abroad. Implementing modern and creative teaching in the classroom, where the teachers’ pedagogy and students’ performance are aligned with the highest academic standards for the high-school finals, our school develops linguistic, mathematical, scientific, artistic, cultural, technical and ICT competence, which is a prerequisite for further education and professional development. Teaching is supported by the interactive whiteboards and educational software, whereas practice exercises research and critical thinking.
