Head of Klaipėda Lyceum: Schools of the millennium are born not in the offices of politicians

Can the definition of modern education and educational institutions of Lithuania be synonymous in the same sentence? Klaipėda Lyceum principal Dr. Regina Kontautienė claims that a status of a modern establishment of learning is upheld by the view on the process of education and a school’s community, not simply by computerised classrooms or a high-tech...

Ramunė Petrauskienė

Head of International Baccalaureate Programmes

“Klaipėda Lyceum is proud to have an International Baccalaureate programme starting in 2020. It is a programme that is recognised by all international universities, where children learn in English and are certainly not afraid to take on some challenges. This programme also includes personal development, people who complete this programme think globally, are very empathetic, are integrated into the community and understand that when living in a community, one must not only receive, but first and foremost, give.”

Inga Gusiatina

Mother of a schoolgirl

“I feel really at ease, I love both the school environment and the safety, and the fact that the children are here under the magnification glass – they are being watched. If something doesn’t work for the child, the teacher invites us, we talk individually, discuss where the child should go, where he needs help.
This school will not let them relax (educationally speaking) – it is a school for motivated and goal-oriented children, and it requires a lot of work. As my daughter Beatričė says: “you can’t be idle here – you have to work a lot.” And she actually works a lot. Sometimes I, as a mother, get angry that she works too many hours, but I think it is very individual and depends on each child’s speed, pace, and various personal characteristics. I think each family manages on its own.”

Kasparas Arys

Klaipėda Lyceum graduate

“The school provides the best conditions for the learner to achieve high academic results, and the means for us to achieve these high results are: excellent, our teachers of the highest level, different lessons and different activities in the lessons. In the twelfth grade, I, as a graduate learner, felt that there was a strong emphasis on the fact that exams were waiting for us, but the interesting thing was that not only the exam itself was being prepared, but the subject itself was being prepared. It is not the case that teachers say that this is the subject they will need in the exam and the other will not, but teachers explain the whole subject in depth, in detail and complement the knowledge you might need at a university.

For me, the most important thing is that those learners who want to achieve results are gathering in Klaipėda Lyceum.“

Vilius Tubinas

Klaipėda Lyceum graduate

“I think the school’s contribution is really very, very important, because the teachers have always encouraged us to learn and always helped us when we needed it most. I really think if I had gone to a different school, I’m not sure I would have achieved such high matriculation exam results.”

 Brother Benediktas Jurčys

Spiritual Director of Klaipėda Lyceum

“I see all that transformation, I know those kids, those families where they grow up. I know dads, not all of them, of course, but a lot of them. I see how families are changing – the child is changing the family. The world we live in is fast-paced, very selfish, and these children are kind of stepping back from that world and starting to think about things like justice, starting to think about moderation: Do I really need everything, or can I share? They wonder, do I really always need to defend myself with lies, or can I always be truthful? This is what they get: wisdom, justice, moderation – all the basic virtues, including honesty. Klaipėda Lyceum is the place, the haven, where morality is also discussed.”
