At Klaipeda Lyceum we have more lessons, there is a different approach, because learners who want to learn and have specific goals come together. A lot of work is put into our high results and achievements by teachers.
Teachers, school management, atmosphere of friendly competition between learners, mutual assistance – all this encourages efforts to achieve results. Not only teachers, but also classmates encourage each other to study well.
Teachers are the biggest asset at the Klaipėda Lyceum. Klaipėda Lyceum has a lot of individual proximity, attention to learner, personal growth as a personality, because there are fewer learners in the classrooms.
The contribution of Klaipėda Lyceum was felt most after the state matriculation examinations. I didn’t feel any stress during the exams, I felt like I was preparing for them long and consistently. We were all very confident and self-assured when taking the exams, ready, because we had worked hard for 12 years.
The teachers here are always encouraging, always there to help when you need it most. I think if I had gone to a different school, I’m not sure if I would have achieved such high results in the matriculation exams.
We started preparing for the matriculation exams in Year 9: already then we were familiarised with the structure of the exams and were taught to concentrate. Consistency is a big contributor to high performance. The teachers here are very dedicated, but we, the learners, are also trying to take from them everything that is given.
Child – education centre
To strive for every child of Klaipėda Lyceum to be a personality, eager to learn, able to create, distinguished by achievements.
Self-sufficiency. We believe that every child’s intellectual growth starts with the ability to find their own solutions, to have their own opinions, to listen to others and to seek consensus.
Klaipėda Lyceum operates in three buildings in the city of Klaipėda.
Learners study in a modern, up-to-date environment that meets the highest international standards. The school has specialised classrooms, a science laboratory, robotics and engineering laboratories, and creative spaces for music and art. Classrooms are equipped according to the children’s educational needs and curriculum requirements. The school has sports and choreography classes, as well as auditoriums for theatre classes and events.
Learning takes place not only in classrooms, but also in other spaces designed for education: the newly equipped library – reading room named after Franciscan Friar Sigitas Benediktas Jurčys, the unconventional educational space Avilys, and the halls of the school decorated with paintings by professional artists. The school regularly exhibits the works of professional artists – the unique Klaipėda Lyceum Painting Gallery, which is being renewed, creates an exceptional artistic educational environment.
For small and elementary school learners, the teaching classes are tailored to their needs. For the very youngest children, the educational spaces were designed to resemble a home environment, while the classrooms for primary school learners are more like academic environments. Classrooms are divided into floors by grades, so that learners of the same age study on the same floor. Classrooms have a lot of didactic materials and learner works. Primary school learners have access to a range of specialised classrooms. The robotics lab is a favourite among learners. The school has playful interactive spaces for active and relaxed recess. For the very youngest children, there is an enclosed courtyard and seaside for outdoor activities and fresh air. Older learners can have both classes and various recreational activities during breaks and after school in the large school ground.
Schoolchildren are systematically offered non-traditional education days, including excursions throughout Lithuania, visiting museums, galleries, parks, businesses and organisations. Learners systematically attend cultural events in the city and in other cities in the country and abroad.
Changing the learning environment contributes to the educational process, provides more opportunities for experiential activities, makes teaching (learning) more interesting, and stimulates the cognitive activity.
